Kori Tuggle Joins Braga Fresh as the Vice President of Marketing and Product Development
SOLEDAD, CA - Kori Tuggle, one of the industry’s most forward-thinking marketers, is joining Braga Fresh Family Farms’ team. The produce marketing executive will take on the new position of Vice President of Marketing and Product Development, in which she will wield her 20-plus years of marketing experience to help the grower strengthen its brand standing and growth efforts, which includes a new facility in Gonzales, California.
As Vice President of Marketing and Product Development, Tuggle will be responsible for brand management, corporate communications, scaling consumer engagement, and collaborating with internal teams and customers to expand Braga Fresh’s product offerings, according to a press release.
With over 20 years of produce marketing experience, Tuggle brings a wealth of knowledge to her new role—knowledge she’s gained while leading marketing and product innovation efforts at companies like Safeway, Ocean Mist Farms, and Church Brothers/True Leaf Farms.
Her most recent position was serving as the Vice President of Marketing and Product Development with Church Brothers Farms.
“In the immediate time frame of this global health crisis, our focus is the health and safety of our employees,” said Rodney Braga, President and CEO, Braga Fresh. “Creating this position is an addition to our executive team as we build for the future. As farming has evolved, so has the approach to marketing, and Kori’s background will bring us the additional support we need to continue our growth.”
At the beginning of March, Braga Fresh opened its newest salad and vegetable processing facility in Gonzales, California. With Tuggle now part of the grower’s team, Braga Fresh will only continue expansion efforts like these as we continue through 2020.
Congratulations to Kori Tuggle on her new role!
