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.
