“After a year in the produce industry, I was hooked.”
In 2013, Amber R. made the move from the little town of Belgrave, ON to Leamington, the southern-most town in Ontario, to start her career in fresh produce. After working two jobs as a Flatbed Dispatcher and a Cook at a restaurant for almost 7 years in Belgrave, Amber knew she needed a change – and that’s how she found her way to Nature Fresh Farms as a Repacking Inventory Clerk.
Moving through many different departments, Amber now has experience with our company in Food Safety, Shipping, Logistics, and Sales: “I moved to Leamington to pursue a position in Logistics, but I have had the opportunity to gain knowledge in a lot of different departments and positions. All of that experience has helped me feel confident in my current position as a Sales/Retail Account Administrator!”
It only took one year for Amber to get hooked on produce: “This industry is fast-paced, and every day is filled with challenges, problem solving, and getting to meet new people. I never gave much thought to how a Tomato made it to my dinner plate until I visited one of the Nature Fresh Farms greenhouses for the first time – it was remarkable.”
A lot of Amber’s free time is spent playing hockey, taking care of two Bullmastiffs named Louie and Rvca, and helping her husband with house renovations. In 2019, Amber is most looking forward to moving into the home her husband has designed and been building for them!
As a Sales/Retail Account Administrator, Amber is constantly supporting our Sales team by maintaining the accounts of our retail partners and keeping our team productive and efficient. Amber is one of the #GrowToPeople!
