The driving power of Shawn Harris
Founder and CEO of Nature's Pride, Shawn Harris accidentally started a career in Fruits & Vegetables when she moved with a degree in Finance from her home ground in Wisconsin, USA to her current host country the Netherlands. She proved to have great adaptability and learning skills. After having worked for 2 renowned Dutch/Belgian Fruit Importers/Exporters she founded her own company 11 years ago with a respected Norwegian distributor. She has built a company that currently employs over 250 people, imports products from more than 60 countries and has 400 customers all over Europe. Besides a good business sense Harris believes it’s the company’s responsibility to give something back to society. That’s why the company supports socially responsible projects in several countries.
Mrs. S. Harris explains:
,,Our interest in innovation & taste and strong will to feel or see no limitations explains why we as a company have been so successful in a very competitive market. The new standard we’ve set in service levels, labelling, our ready-to-eat programs, and our connection with the consumer have made the difference. In order to stay ahead of the rest we need to constantly innovate our processes and assortment. We are also fanatically dedicated to, happy with and thankful for our customers. Together with our customers we develop new ideas that give them a sharper edge in their markets. Last but not least I have to say that our relationships with our growers are very special. We really appreciate them and support them to keep their business running smoothly and growing. At all times we think with them”.
