This month, we created a new marketing position on our team for a Fresh and Local Category Manager! Consumers have shown increased demand for local, fresh, and healthier products. We felt compelled to create a position within our organization to help meet the emerging consumer needs. We promoted from within and awarded the position to former Food Service Quality Assurance Manager, Cheri Booth!
The Fresh and Local Category Manager will report to the Director of Food Service, Ryan Krebs. She will oversee all aspects of local, fresh procurement including produce, seasonal fruits & vegetables, foodservice, snacks, beverages, beer and wine!
“We are very excited about adding this new role to the Rutter’s Team. Consumers increasingly want more fresh, local, and clean label products. We think that deserves a dedicated person to make sure we are providing our customers with the highest quality local products possible. We know that Cheri will do a great job in this new role and cannot wait to see what the future holds for her and this new position,” said Ryan Krebs, Rutter’s Director of Foodservice.
