    • Health & Fitness

I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to speak with Lara Ramdin and Orzse Hodi of Dole Sunshine Company. Lara is the Chief Innovation Officer and Orzse is VP of Marketing Americas at Dole, and they both bring some much insight as it relates to developing innovations and solutions to the increasing demand for healthy, affordable food. 
As for the background on my two guests, Lara has an extensive global track record in R&D, product development and innovation. She is a passionate innovator, a design thinking practitioner and trainer, and a fierce advocate for young women in STEM. Orzse Hodi possesses an extensive background in the food and CPG environment, from brand reinvigoration, product innovation, and digital marketing. 
 
I love chatting about the food world and there were so many fun takeaways from my chat with Lara and Orzse, but here are some of my favorites:
Food can make such a difference in the human body, so remember to nurture your body from the inside out and make good choices about your health; A background in science can take women so many places, so if you like science, you can find in your career in one of the many fields associated with it; It’s important for consumers to understand the science behind nutrition and take ownership of what they put into their bodies; Healthy living means accepting the boundaries of the circumstances that surround you and exploring and trying new things.
