  • The Japan Times reports Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiators finished their meeting in Ottawa Saturday without an agreement or date for the next meeting due to differences over contentious issues such as intellectual property.

    Some people believe some negotiators could start questioning if TPP negotiations will and can maintain momentum with midterm elections coming up for the U.S. in November.

    American Enterprise Institute’s Derek Scissors says time is running out in the U.S. political calendar and the political momentum in the U.S. for TPP is zero in the run-up to the elections with no guarantee it will emerge as a major issue late this year or in 2015.

  • The United Fresh Foundation has a Fresh Produce Pavilion at the School Nutrition Association Annual National Conference in Boston this week.

    The pavilion features an Ask the Experts: Produce Solutions Center where produce experts will answer schools’ questions on produce and how to establish collaborative business relationships with produce distributors.

    The pavilion also has a fresh vending machine stocked with single-serve fresh cut fruits, vegetables and salads illustrating what products meet the new Smart Snacks in Schools nutrition standards.
