The Superheroes That Saved Orange Juice
Join Social Venture Circle and the American Sustainable Business Council January 13, 1-2:30pm ET for a special edition of NEXT Economy LIVE featuring Matt McLean (Uncle Matt’s Organic), Paul Richardson (Renewal Funds), and Gary Hirshberg (Stonyfield Farm, Hirshberg Entrepreneurship Institute) in conversation with Nancy Rosenzweig (ValuesAligned Capital).
In March of 2020 with the pandemic looming and the financial markets in free fall, Matt McLean learned he had 30 days to buy his business back from the Dean Foods bankruptcy. The business his family built was the largest organic, citrus brand in the US. Allowing it go under or fall into the wrong hands could have caused irreparable damage to the organic citrus supply chain.
Meet the team that saved the company against all odds and learn how they did it. Hear about how this team is transforming an industry battered by citrus greening ( a by product of of non sustainable farming practices, over using pesticides) and low sugar trends into an innovative powerhouse in organic immunity products.
