It's A Plum life.
We're not just drinking the kool-aid, we promise! We are a group of extremely passionate people that truly love what we do and why we do it. We are parents, aunts, uncles, big brothers… tooth fairies. We are curious connoisseurs and joy seeking foodies that have come together to discover, celebrate & create all things healthy, inventive & yum. We have the utmost respect for even the tiniest of taste-buds, so we set out every day to deliver the goodness and giggles of great tasting food. Things move fast around here, but we're a nimble crew. We know that what it really takes to make a great company is a bit of determination, A LOT of laughter and maybe the occasional line dance or two!

Meet Neil Grimmer, President & Co-founder of Plum Organics.
From the moment that he first heard the words, "it's a girl," Neil knew that he was now part of something much greater than himself. He knew in that moment that he would spend the rest of his life loving, nurturing and protecting this little girl. It was in those early years that he realized the incredible importance food and nourishment played in his daughter's health and development. As his second daughter entered their world, the wheels began to turn…
Neil & his wife Tana spent hours trying to get parenting just right: reading all the books, talking with friends, toiling away late at night digging up recipes online – all to ensure that from the very first bite, their girls were getting the nutrition they needed to thrive. As his girls grew, his passion for food and health began to extend beyond his own family. He knew there were millions of other parents out there like them, all trying their best to adjust to life as new parents while balancing the demands of the modern world we live in. Using his designer background and intuitive, problem solving mind he came up with a solution that not only made life simpler for parents but healthier for babies & kids… Enter stage left, Plum Organics.
Here's a bit of street cred:
Neil has been a leader in the design and consumer products industry for over a decade. He was formerly the VP of Strategy and Innovation at Clif Bar & Company, and prior to that a Senior Designer at IDEO. As an imaginative force and designer of ideas, products and brands, Neil has led Plum Organics to become one of the fastest-growing organic food brands in the US for baby, toddler and kids. He has led the launch of over 150 innovative products, including pioneering the first to market spouted pouch that has single-handedly revolutionized a dormant baby food category. With Plum’s recent expansion into kids snacks, Neil is set out to reinvent the experience of healthy feeding your family with the right DNA for game-changing ideas.

Now that we got all the technical stuff out of the way, let us say that Dr. Greene is not only our partner, but our friend. We have such great respect for his wealth of knowledge, his overall integrity, optimism and empowering outlook on life as a whole. He's been known to show up for a "Greene Plum-tini" at happy hour and was even caught joining in the fun of a mud race, alongside fellow Plum people. He is humble, fun and just an overall stellar guy. Thank you for your friendship & guidance Dr. Greene…we heart you!
