When starting a business, the only thing that may be more valuable than capital is advice. Fortunately for the natural food industry, the market is saturated with both.
But just as not all capital is beneficial for your brand, not all advice will suit your ultimate goals either. So how do you decide when to just listen or when to listen and act?
During this year’s Natural Products Expo West, the NOSH team sought out five natural food founders, from newcomers to seasoned vets, to get the low-down on the best — and worst — advice they have ever received. Here’s what they had to say.
Co-founder and COO of Barnana
Founder and CEO of Sweet Loren’s
Founder and president of Duke’s Meats
Founder and CEO of Simple Mills
CEO of Fishpeople Seafood
