    The Importance of Building Brand Loyalty and the Power of Convivence - Green Fork

    This week, we will be talking with Deep Silver the Senior Director of Marketing at Fresh Prep, LLC, and Boskovich Family Farms. Deep recently helmed the launch of Green Fork, an inventive, fresh new line of salad kits, tender leaves, salad blends, and packaged veggies. The company is one of the very few vertically integrated produce companies meaning that they grow, process, pack, and deliver their own products. In our interview, Deep will tell us about her background and inception of Green Fork as well as CVOID’s impacts on creating the product. We’ll also talk about the importance of building brand loyalty, the power of convenience, and what Deep learned about the agriculture industry while creating this product.

Knowledgeable and Informative

Farm Traveler is both knowledgeable and informative. Listening to the many guest has been eye opening. The knowledge I’ve gained has given me a greater appreciation for farmers. I especially like to hear how my food goes from the farm to my table. Each episode is enlightening.
