On Friday June 5th, the Produce industry lost one of its finest gentlemen, John McAleavey. The longtime Executive Director of the Eastern Produce Council, passed away at his home surrounded by his loving and devoted family.
John's passing takes from us a man who was instrumental in building the EPC into one of the highest respected Produce Food Councils in the nation. John's tireless work ethic, professionalism, sacrifice, spirit, and love of the EPC will leave a never ending legacy which we have now been charged to maintain and bring to the next level.
I and the entire board of directors lost a comrade and a friend; we will miss him dearly, but always be affected by him and better people for knowing him! He was absolutely one of a kind and truly loved by all of us!
President of the Eastern Produce Council
