The United Fresh Technical Advisory Group (TAG) was set up in 2018 to support members in crucial areas impacting our industry currently and into the future.

TAG has enabled us to draw expertise from both our United Fresh Executive and membership base. TAG is chaired by Dr Hans Maurer, United Fresh Knowledge Officer and managed by our United Fresh management team in collaboration with The AgriChain Centre.
