ISS mentioned in The Packer

By Scott Dickes

Bob Rust's (founder of Hadley Capital portfolio company International Specialty Supply) letter to The Packer was published this week. The Packer is a leading news and information source for the fruit and vegetable industry. In the letter Bob outlines why, despite a few recent recalls, it is misguided to remove sprouts from restaurants and grocery stores. Nice work Bob. Check out the letter here.
