IARW Turns 110

BOCA RATON, FL — The members of the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW) commemorated the organization’s 110th anniversary at its annual convention and trade show held here recently. Presiding over the convention were IARW chairman William T. Gee and Raymond E. Biggar, World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO) chairman.

There were also a number of presentations and seminars. Alan J. Parisse delivered the keynote address on “Sustaining Success in a Revolutionary World,” and Fred Guy, Ph.D., director of the Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics, led a panel discussion on ethics in the cold storage industry and how decisions balance with day-to-day operations.
