Responding to double-digit growth in one of the fastest growing retail food category, a pair of produce industry veterans have formed a new company to connect facets of the organic produce community through education, information, and live events.
Matt Seeley, former vice president of marketing for The Nunes Company, and Tonya Antle, former vice president of organic sales for Earthbound Farm have teamed to develop The Organic Produce Network (OPN).
The company’s website and weekly digital newsletter, OPN Connect, are scheduled to launch in February.
The website and digital newsletter will feature content related to organic fresh produce, with a special emphasis on thought-provoking commentary and analysis from leaders and influencers in the organic produce and food arena.
OPN’s mission is to inform and educate, which will be complimented by engaging live events that bring together various components of the organic food community, according to a press release.
