Trent Bishop Trent Bishop Vice President of Sales Trent Bishop is a 1994 graduate of Texas A&M University, where he earned a degree in Agricultural Economics with an emphasis on Agri-Business. Although he did not grow up in an agricultural family, Trent decided after high school to pursue a career in agriculture because as he saw it, "everyone will always need fresh food to eat". So with that simple idea in his head, he set out on a career path that has now spanned 20 years. Throughout his career, Trent has been very fortunate to work side by side with some of the most well-respected industry leaders in South Texas. He credits these individuals with instilling in him a work ethic based on honesty, integrity and building long-lasting relationships. Trent has been very fortunate to work side by side with some of the most well-respected industry leaders in South Texas. He credits these individuals with instilling in him a work ethic based on honesty, integrity and building long-lasting relationships. Trent is active in the daily sales of the company's citrus crop and believes in putting the customer first. On his first day of work at Golden Valley Distributors in 1994, Stan Agar, a produce industry icon, told him, "Trent, there are a lot of unsavory characters in this business that make a lot of money. In 2000, Stan Agar sold Golden Valley Distributors to FoodSource, Inc and Trent was asked to come back and manage the operation. In 2006, Trent was approached by Jud Flowers to manage the sales department at what was then Healds Valley Farms, Inc. After 13 years in the business, Trent branched off in 2007 with his business partners, T.J. and Jud Flowers to pursue a dream of building their own business. And thus, Lone Star Citrus Growers was born. Trent now serves as Vice-President of Sales where he is very active in the daily sales of the company's citrus crop. Trent is a very active participant in produce industry. He is a graduate of the United Fresh Produce Industry Leadership Program, and then went on to serve as a board member of the United Fresh Leadership Alumni Board. Trent has served on the board of the Texas International Produce Association since 2003, and served as Chairman of that organization from 2010 - 2012. He has also served on the board of TexaSweet Citrus Marketing since 2004. Trent is currently the Chairman of the Shipper Division within the Texas International Produce Association. Trent is married to his wife Veronica, and has three daughters - Hannah, Allyson and Marin. When Trent and Veronica are not chasing the girls around the state supporting their club volleyball careers, they can be found lounging on the beaches of nearby South Padre Island, or fishing the shallow waters of the Lower Laguna Madre.

"We learned a great deal at last year's conference about what the industry wants and needs from this event," said TPA Chairman Trent Bishop.
"Based on that, we're planning a convention in Nogales that gives the participants real take home value, whether they're grower/shippers in Mexico or receivers in the U.S. We see the ATP as a high quality, precisely targeted gathering that helps solve problems, explores new business opportunities, and gives those who attend a heightened level of confidence in their ability to profit from produce trade between our two nations," Bishop said.
