In addition, Eric was also president and board member of a grain, feed and crop input supplier and served as the president of an identity preserved food soybean value-added processor and exporter.
Anthony Totta, founders of FreshXperts said; “Without a doubt Eric brings a level of expertise and experience that is becoming increasingly more important to the fresh produce industry. With consolidation taking place in the producer arena and the growing need for succession planning, Eric along with our entire group of consultants can provide a deeper level of professional services to existing and potential clients.”
Bosveld was first introduced to the FreshXperts earlier this year and was intrigued by the core values the organization touts. The core values of partnerships, a focus on the fresh food industry, developing lasting relationships, trust, quality and excellence are perfectly aligned with the way Bosveld conducts his private company client services. Bosveld said; The decision to join FreshXperts took a little time, but in retrospect was a very easy decision because of our value alignment and the collection of complimentary experience of the other members of the team.”
FreshXperts operates on the premise that collaboration with their team of professionals produces value for their clients, thus offering deeper, more comprehensive consulting services that produce outstanding results and ROI. Bosveld continued; “No one individual has all the expertise to tackle the complexity of the challenges and opportunities in fresh food industry, thus the collaborative approach of FreshXperts is key to helping our clients achieve the results and success they are seeking.”
The FreshXperts are produce industry consultants with specific areas of expertise who have banded together to offer clients a broad range of solutions in mergers and acquisitions, operations, marketing, sales, merchandising, governance, strategic planning, supply chain (including cool chain), e-commerce, social media, online and more.
