How I can help you

I can help you develop marketing and sales plans for your consumer packaged goods business.

My expertise includes entrepreneurship, farming, business strategy and planning, consumer insights, product development, marketing, sales, and co-packer management.

As an founder / entrepreneur in the organic packaged food industry, I have experience developing winning strategies to introduce and grow market share of grocery and food service products. My particular focus has been leveraging consumer preferences and purchase behavior to design compelling products that gain and hold distribution in the marketplace.

I have also helped poor farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa and South India to introduce innovative farm products into the marketplace. I previously served as a senior agricultural advisor at The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and HarvestPlus, Washington, DC.

I am passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge. Let's talk.
