The Produce Marketing Association (PMA) is a global trade association whose 2200 members represent the full supply chain of the produce and mass-market floral industry, from seed producer to supermarket or foodservice outlet. It was founded in 1949. Mike O'Brien of Schnucks Markets in St. Louis, MO is the current chairman of the board of directors. The CEO is Bryan Silbermann, and the president is Cathy Burns. PMA sponsors an annual convention and exposition called Fresh Summit. The 2015 event will be held in Atlanta, GA on October 23-25.
