Over the past three decades the natural foods revolution has changed what we eat, where we shop, and how we talk and think about food. It also created roles models out of the businesses that dared to openly challenge the interests of American agribusiness and proved that principled business is not just possible, but profitable.
Joe Dobrow, a 20-year veteran of this now $100 billion industry, has written a book called Natural Prophets that chronicles the rise of the industry and the pioneers who re-wrote the playbook for small entrepreneurs. Next month Dobrow will be coming to Impact Hub Seattle to talk about his book and highlight how we in Seattle are at the front lines of sustainability and entrepreneurship.
The event will be unlike any other, with a food entrepreneurship panel discussion and strategy slam competition between some of the great new up and coming food companies in our region. Panelists will include local natural food luminaries Joe Whinney of Theo’s Chocolate and Edmond Santics of Sahale Snacks, among others. Tickets are just $9 and are available through Brown Paper Tickets.
We hope to see you there!When: Thursday April 3rd from 5:30pm-7:30p Where: Impact Hub Seattle 220 2nd Avenue South Seattle, WA 98104
