Mothering through breastfeeding is the most natural and effective way of understanding and satisfying the needs of the baby. Mother and baby need to be together early and often to establish a satisfying relationship and an adequate milk supply. In the early years the baby has an intense need to be with his mother which is as basic as his need for food. Breast milk is the superior infant food, for the healthy, full-term baby, breast milk is the only food necessary until the baby shows signs of needing solids, about the middle of the first year after birth. Ideally the breastfeeding relationship will continue until the baby outgrows the need. Alert and active participation by the mother in childbirth is a help in getting breastfeeding off to a good start. Breastfeeding is enhanced and the nursing couple sustained by the loving support, help, and companionship of the baby's father. A father's unique relationship with his baby is an important element in the child's development from early infancy. Good nutrition means eating a well-balanced and varied diet of foods in as close to their natural state as possible. From infancy on, children need loving guidance which reflects acceptance of their capabilities and sensitivity to their feelings.

Produce Marketing Association
Library Topics: Other
4 Conferences, 85 Sessions, 250 Speakers
PMA was founded October 24, 1949, in New York City. PMA's tradition of providing members with networking and educational opportunities began the same year with an event that would eventually be known as Fresh Summit.

First known as the Produce Prepackaging Association, PMA was formed to help the produce industry seize opportunities that arose from new packaging materials developed in connection with World War II and to take advantage of emerging self-service produce departments.

The association's two key purposes in the 1960s were to work for consumer acceptance of produce packaging and serve as a packaging information resource for members.

Uniting The Channels Of Distribution
In the 1970s PMA began to establish its reputation as a marketplace-oriented association. With its new name — Produce Marketing Association — PMA focused on bringing together all levels of the distribution channel in vertically integrated operation divisions: Retail, Foodservice, and Floral (which in late 2001 transitioned to become PMA's first Industry Common Interest Group).

Driving Increased Consumption
The 1980s, a strong growth period for PMA, saw PMA further refining its marketing strategies to facilitate the increased consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. PMA developed training manuals, seminars, posters, and tours to boost the industry's knowledge of produce handling and enhance sales. New events such as the PMA Foodservice Conference were also introduced.

An Eye on the Future
The 1990 Futures Study helped PMA's leadership usher in a new decade of growth. Increased focus on increasing consumption led to PMA's creation of the Produce for Better Health Foundation in 1991. This independent foundation was created to work with the National Cancer Institute in a partnership designed to increase consumer awareness of the benefits of fruit and vegetable consumption.

The Technology Revolution
The '90s also saw PMA taking advantage of new communications technologies to connect to members worldwide. PMA developed a Web site ( to provide 24-hour access to information, and created a virtual trade show. The Produce Electronic Identification Board, managed by PMA, emerged as an essential technology standardization forum for the industry.

International Focus
PMA enhanced the resources devoted to international growth in the mid-1990s as the trend toward globalization increased. An International Advisory Council was created to allow members involved in international trade to help guide the association. New events and products, including today's highly successful Leadership Symposium were also introduced.

Looking to the Future
In the 21st century PMA continues its focus to build and enhance a strong global produce and floral supply chain by expanding the services offered to members in the areas of government and public affairs, food safety and security, improving the application of technology, and increasing training and networking resources for industry professionals.
