How I can help you
I have been in the agriculture machinery business until 1978, I spent four years in the livestock marketing industry as President of a location as well as marketing development for eight locations across the country.. I spent ten years marketing and selling specialty food commodities both domestically and internationally. I started SunButter, substitute for peanut butter in 2000, I brought SunButter from zero to the leading tree nut and seed butter category. I worked closely with the USDA ERS to develop the process to make SunButter from sunflower seeds. I built the employment from just me to over 50 employees and growing. I retired from SunButter in 2015.
