“I was happy to join the team and become one of the many Grow-To People.”
After graduating from high school, Bobby E. started working in the fresh produce industry. Bobby tried many different positions when he first ventured into produce – he started in a General Labor position, then became a Line Lead, and then a Supervisor. When he wanted to pursue greater career opportunities, Bobby started looking for a new job in the same field – which is when he joined our team!
From his first interview, Bobby knew NatureFresh Farms was where he wanted to develop further professionally: “In my interview I was already starting to get excited. There were so many things I saw that showed me the growth NatureFresh Farms has experienced, the careful steps and planning that went into it, and the many opportunities for people to develop within the company.”
Bobby has enjoyed applying his skills to new opportunities within his role: “I am numerate, good with computers, organized, and have good attention to detail – all skills that have been helpful when taking on new responsibilities. I joined the Food Loss Prevention team this year, and I also now help the Continuous Improvement team with improving our Production processes.”
In his free time, Bobby enjoys working on art projects, building computers, playing board games with family, and going out to the movies. He just recently finished a unique project – creating a programmable music box!
In his role at our Distribution Center, Bobby is responsible for finding new ways to reduce and prevent food loss while ensuring we continuously meet quality standards, as well as communicating product allocations as the fresh produce that we market runs through our Production process. Bobby is one of our #GrowToPeople!
