I have 10 years of experience in procurement, supply chain building, quality, co-manufacturing and product development in the Natural and Organic Ingredient space, especially for the retail. I am also an entrepreneur as I co-founded a co-manufacturing & Private Labelling company in the Organic Food industry. We grew this company to $30M from scratch and supply clients such as Walmart, Cost-Co, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's... So here I have an extensive network of suppliers (own database of 3000 vendors gathered through my career), co-packers, packaging vendors, warehouse, distribution centers.. I have developed products for big buck retailers, renown CPGs like Pepsi or Nestlé and food start-Ups. And we are creating with my wife an Online Organic body care brand for kids and babies where we have developed our own line of products manufactured in Europe and Canada
