Twenty Burris Team Members Attend the 49th Annual WFLO Institute

Burris Logistics Team Members at WFLO

 

For the third year in a row, twenty Burris team members enjoyed a four-day industry specific program called WFLO Institute (World Food Logistics Organization).  Attendees enjoyed more  than 40 classes taught by leading experts in the refrigerated warehousing industry.  Over the four days, our team members were cross trained and educated in all areas of public warehousing refrigeration regardless of their job titles. Maggie Owens, Burris Marketing, says, “WFLO is great because it takes you out of your silo mindset, and you come away with a better understanding of all the touch points of the business.”
