WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID

I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the most passionate and talented people in the world of food and I am excited to be able to share this knowledge and experience with others.

"Annie has the ability to immediately identify key success factors when it comes to food products in the retail channel. Her expertise in this area and true passion for the food industry with an analytical yet creative approach helped us refine our strategy and influenced the NPD portfolio."
