Episode 8 of Tip of the Iceberg Podcast, brought to you by The Packer and PMG, features an interview with Shannon Kyle, who handles sales and marketing for Torrey Farms in Elba, N.Y.
Kyle discusses the adjustments the company has made in the face of unpredictable foodservice demand, including packing later in the day since orders are coming in later than normal and no one wants extra inventory. She also talks about the need for above-and-beyond flexibility and opines on the value of old-school phone conversations in navigating a very unusual time.
You can listen to the interview with Kyle, conducted by Northeast editor Amy Sowder, on the player below or using Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
