Teri Miller

Senior Category Manager for Produce , The Fresh Market

I look forward to getting The Snack each month. So does my husband and he isn’t in the industry! It’s a FUN read but at the same time informative. I’m forever tearing out articles to file for follow-up on either a grower, product, or friend. 

Now that I’ve been with two completely different retailers, The Snack brings an ideal perspective. The Snack encourages me to consider the differences in customers. OMG! The customer has changed so much in the past five years and I can’t imagine that this change will slow down.

Thank you to The Snack for giving me the tools for my job and bringing a smile to my face as I read the delightful articles!

Keep up the good work!
