World Food Prize, 2007 Laureate Announcement Ceremony - Washington, DC, United States (18/06/07)

Executive Director Josette Sheeran

I thank the World Food Prize for recognizing Dr. Philip E.Nelson, a man who has taken his passion for farming and canning tomatoes in Morristown, Indiana, and parlayed that into a technology revolution in the storage, packaging and shipment of fruits and vegetables in a way that not only helps farmers, but also those who are hungry in the world.
