Yes, Annie is a real person. Annie Withey, a mother of two and an organic farmer, co-founded her company in 1989. Their first product? Shells and White Cheddar mac and cheese. Though Annie’s is most known for it’s Mac and Cheese line of products, this company also offers crackers, graham cookies, cereal and fruit snacks, all using “straight from nature ingredients.” Because of Annie, this company is passionate about more than food. People and the planet are equal in importance to everyone working there. Sarah will give us insight into how this company thinks, how products are developed and what the future holds for all of us who are Annie’s followers. One of the first questions I will ask her is, “Bunnies, why bunnies?” Thanks to business pioneers like Annie, it possible to feed healthier and delicious foods to our families.
