Sari Kimbell has worked in just about every sector of the food industry, cultivating her passion for food and the way it connects all of us. Her career in food systems started in restaurants serving and then management. She shifted to the production aspect and created a small wholesale program to directly deliver to restaurants and retail. This led to directing the largest CSA in the country with 5,000 members. She transitioned to grocery retail as a buyer for Whole Foods Market Fort Collins and then became the Marketing Director. Beyond her marketing and community connection work, she worked diligently with local producers to help them negotiate the process to sell their product on the shelves.
In 2015 she founded Cultivate Consulting, LLC. As a Food Business Consultant she focuses on promoting the heroes in the local food system to help them realize their individual goals.
