Robert Sakata of Sakata Farms in Brighton, Colo., was named the Colorado Fruit & Vegetable Growers Association's 2017 Member of the Year on Feb. 20 during the association's fourth annual conference. Not only was he the first recipient of this award, the award will henceforth be known as CFVGA's Robert Sakata Member of the Year Award.

"It is entirely fitting that the CFVGA member of the year award be named after an individual who has put his whole heart into making our organization a success," said Roger Mix, CFVGA vice president. "As a CFVGA founding board member, he has invested huge amounts of time, talent and even his own money."

Every year since CFVGA's formation in 2014, Sakata has been elected to serve as president of the association.
