FreshBox Farms Names Randy Frederick National Accounts Director
MILLIS, MA – April 4, 2018 – FreshBox Farms, among the nation’s most efficient vertical farming operations, has named Randy Frederick its National Accounts Director.
His goal will be to build profitable business partnerships with key customers in the Grocery, Wholesale Produce, Food Service and Restaurant retail channels.
“We’re delighted to have Randy on board. He brings a wealth of knowledge about what national corporations consider in choosing locally grown greens,” says FreshBox Farms CEO Sonia Lo.
Mr. Frederick most recently was Vice President of National Sales for Freight Farms, responsible for account development in the grocery, restaurant, and wholesale produce channels. He also served in various capacities with SteadyServ Technologies, which focused inventory, order management, and business intelligence systems to serve the needs of the beer industry.
In addition, he was sales director with MHQ, one of the top up-fitters of municipal vehicles in the US and served in various sales and marketing positions with MillerCoors.
FreshBox Farms’ sustainable indoor growing enclosures use no soil, very little water, a rigorously-tested nutrient mix and LED lighting to produce the freshest, cleanest, tastiest produce possible. Unlike lettuce and other produce that are frozen and spend weeks being transported to local stores, FreshBox Farms’ greens are harvested, packaged, and shipped within hours to local grocers.
All FreshBox Farms products are kosher and non-GMO certified, grown without pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. The greens are also GAP (Good Agricultural Practices)-certified by the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, which identifies locally sourced products grown, harvested and processed in using practices that are safe, sustainable and don’t harm the environment.
