Episode 33: Looking Back at Episode 1 – Meet Lori Taylor, Founder & CEO of The Produce Moms

“Our mission is to increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables in the US and change the way America eats”

In this pilot episode of The Produce Moms Podcast, we hear from the Founder of The Produce Moms, Lori Taylor.  Lori has 10+ years of experience in the produce industry and is working every day to increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables.  Her passion to “change the way America eats” comes from her expertise in the industry and her responsibility as a Mom to make the best, and most healthy, choices for her family.

“We’re helping people understand the many different ways that they can eat more fresh produce and simplifying the process”

Lori shares her story and unique perspective on what it means to eat more fruits and vegetable, the vision for The Produce Moms, and why we decided to start a podcast.  From a late night decision to buy the URL theproducemoms.com to what the brand and community is today is truly an amazing and inspiring journey.  Lori shares some defining moments in the process and how she had to stand up for herself in corporate America to be able to make the impact that she’s making today.

“I paid more for my idea than my home”

In 2018, The Produce Moms is a thriving community with an intense focus to resource America with a healthier alternative to what we’re bombarded with every day. The produce section is a guilt-free zone and we can be a part of changing the way America eats by shining light on the produce industry and all of its benefits.

“We have almost 40K subscribers from 30 countries and all 50 states”

Join the movement today, and help us change the way America eats.
