MCLEAN, VA. — The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) is changing its name to better reflect the group’s steadfast support of the food and beverage industry. Now the Food Production Solutions Association (FPSA), the organization has also welcomed several new membership categories to stoke cross-sector collaboration.

The rebrand was announced by Brian Perkins, chair of FPSA and president of Provisur Technologies Inc., during FPSA’s annual Executive Exchange & Conference in Indian Wells, Calif., on March 27.
