DMTB and Capital City Fruit had the pleasure of having Iowa Congressman Tom Latham visit this morning. He took a tour of the new facility and warehouse, met with employees, and sat down to talk about issues in Washington facing both companies and their industries. It was an honor to host Congressman Latham and we thank him for taking the time out of his busy schedule.
