In this episode, I interview Sara Andrews, founder of Bumbleroot Foods, focused on the things that matter most to her – “top-notch nutrition, sustainable agriculture, fair prices for farmers, and, of course, scrumptious snacks and beverages.”
The grandaughter of ranchers and farmers, she served as an advisor in the U.S. Senate on agriculture and international trade issues and served as a strategy consultant to a Fortune 250 company.
In this episode we talk about:
+ her time working in Zimbabwe, witnessing the negative impacts of U.S. agricultural practices on local farmers and the land.
+ how that experience shaped her philosophy on supporting farmers to work with nature instead of against it.
+ her experience as a woman founding a company that runs totally counter to the .current food industry
