Sari Kimbell has held just about every position in the CPG food industry from grocery buyer to selling local produce wholesale into stores, running a commissary kitchen to Marketing Director and buyer for Whole Foods Market.

A layoff in 2015 was the push she needed to start helping entrepreneurs people dreaming about starting their own packaged food or handmade product business. Through one-on-one business and mindset coaching or her online programs, Food Business Success® and Master Your Business, her clients are able to skip the line to quickly, safely and profitably launch or grow a packaged product business with less worry, confusion and overwhelm.

Whether it is to launch a new business or product, go into manufacturing, pitch to regional retailers or expand their online sales, create a strong foundation to begin hiring employees or step into the role of CEO, her systems of accountability, support and expertise combined with mindset and brain science training get her clients results. Every time.

Sari is a number one bestselling author on Amazon of the book Key Ingredients: How to Turn Your Passion Product into a Profitable Business, the host of the Food Business Success® podcast and YouTube channel and has been featured in Business News, International Business Times, Yahoo Finance, Colorado SBDC, Food Finance Institute and Recipal.
