Ms. Juana Gomez, Corporate Director of Human Resources, shared about the company's operations at the site as well as other locations across the U.S. and in Mexico. Mr. Matt Fuller, Manager of Monterey Mushrooms, shared the details of his career journey and gave a detailed tour of the site, explaining the various stages of growing thousands of pounds of mushrooms a day. Mr. Brian Mussetter, Logistics Manager-Western Region,  gave a detailed overview of logistics in the perishable industry, especially about the company's new venture into a stand-alone logistics business. His team also gave a first-hand demonstration of truckload planning software to the students. Students also got to see the various tracking software used by the company that help ensure the safe delivery of products to the customer. We appreciate the team at Monterey Mushrooms for helping our students in their experiential learning.
