Sales Associate at Ark Foods 842 views5 applications

Ark Foods is revolutionizing the vegetables we eat. We are a leading brand of high end, specialty produce products such as shishito peppers. Our company operates farms up and down the East Coast, where we grow our unique veggies at large scale. You can find our products in restaurant kitchens and produce aisles all over the country. Customers include major supermarket chains, food service companies, and wholesale produce distributors.

  4. Work closely with CEO, Chairman, and sales team to execute sales strategy
  5. Exhibit proactive approach to maintaining and improving customer relationships
  6. Go above and beyond to service new and existing customers
