Brighter Bites Welcomes New Manager of Sourcing, Amy Priebe
HOUSTON, TX - The value of experience from across the supply chain cannot be understated. In gaining more than one perspective of an industry relationship, we are better able to understand each other. Brighter Bites has found this in its most recent hire, naming Amy Priebe as its new Sourcing Manager.
"I am looking forward to growing Brighter Bites partnerships in the produce industry so that the organization can continue to distribute the best fruits and vegetables to our families,” said Priebe. “By expanding these partnerships and reaching even more families, we can help create the next generation of fresh produce consumers.”
Priebe joins Brighter Bites with years of produce sourcing experience, most recently working at Imperfect Foods as the Produce Merchandising and Category Manager. In her new role, Priebe will work closely with produce suppliers and distributors from across the country to ensure Brighter Bites families receive the most nutritious fresh food available.
According to a press release, she earned her undergraduate degree in Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Soon after, she attended the L'Art de la Pâtisserie program at the French Pastry School in Chicago, Illinois, and spent six years baking bread, pastry, and desserts throughout the Midwest, eventually becoming head pastry chef at Sardine in Madison, Wisconsin, for two years.
"Amy's years of experience in the produce supply space will serve as a tremendous asset to Brighter Bites as we continue to make connections within the produce industry, serve families in our existing cities, and expand to additional cities throughout the country,” said Rich Dachman, CEO. “Brighter Bites is thrilled to have her expertise and enthusiasm as part of the team."
Though she no longer cooks professionally, Priebe has continued to strengthen her knowledge of food as a sale and purchasing manager for local food distributors. For the past eight years, she’s connected customers with quality produce in the Midwest. Most recently, she helped launch Imperfect Foods in the Midwest, where she was responsible for sourcing all of the perfectly imperfect fruits and vegetables from around the country.
Congratulations to Amy Priebe on this exciting appointment!
