“We spend more time at work than at home sometimes, so we’re a pretty tight-knit team.”
After attending the University of Windsor and acquiring his BCom in Business, Ryan C. started working on the Sales and Marketing side of the power sports industry. After about a year, Ryan wanted to switch things up, so he decided to jump head-first into an industry he knew next to nothing about – fresh produce. Based in Leamington, ON, Ryan is now a key member of our Procurement team!
Although he grew up in Windsor, Ryan knew very little about the greenhouse industry in Leamington when he started working at NatureFresh™ Farms: “I had to learn everything from scratch when I started in Procurement. But as soon as I got a taste for the work, I immediately enjoyed the challenge.”
It hasn’t taken Ryan long to grow close with the NatureFresh™ Farms team: “We are all pretty much like family. We can work long hours sometimes, so you really get to know the people that you’re working with here. They’re all pretty awesome.”
When Ryan does get some free time, he enjoys taking part in adrenaline-filled power sports, especially racing motorcycles and cars. Ryan also loves snowboarding and surfing whenever he gets the chance!
The Procurement department is almost always a flurry of activity – it’s Ryan’s job to work alongside the rest of our Procurement team to maintain fresh inventory, ensure our retail partners’ orders are filled with high-quality product, and develop strong relationships with partner growers. Ryan is one of our #GrowtoPeople!
