Emeryville, CA (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
Today, leading organic baby food brand, Plum Organics, a part of Nest Collective, announced a partnership with Dr. Alan Greene, noted pediatrician, author and expert in organic nutrition. Dr. Greene will join the company as a trusted advisor and will be furthering a shared mission to educate parents about the benefits of diverse, colorful, organic foods from the very beginning of a baby’s diet.
Since 2006, Plum Organics has been a category-innovator in both baby and toddler food. Plum Organics is best known for introducing the BPA-free spouted pouch to the U.S. baby food market, packaging that has since become the dominant format in its category as well as a gateway into an organic diet for consumers. Utilizing Dr. Greene’s pediatric expertise, Plum Organics will expand on new product offerings that meet the nutritional needs of growing children while reinforcing the message that healthy eating can be an easy part of today’s busy lifestyle.
“Dr. Greene is a progressive and trusted source in the field of children’s pediatric health, and we are thrilled to announce him as our new advisor,” said Neil Grimmer, Co-Founder and CEO of Nest Collective. “Our partnership is a natural fit in that we are uniquely aligned around ensuring the best nutrition for our youngest as well as in our innovative approach to solving today’s health challenges. As a leader in his field, Dr. Greene is both educating parents and working closely with the medical community to provide families with the best nutrition information available.”
“I am honored to join the Nest Collective family and to work with them to further their mission,” said Alan Greene, M.D. “As a father of four, I know the importance of children receiving nutritious meals and, even more so, the benefit organic ingredients play in children’s health. I also know how overwhelming it can be for parents trying to navigate the world of first feedings, and I’m excited that through Plum Organics, we are giving parents convenient options they can trust.”
Dr. Greene will be joining Plum Organics at the upcoming Natural Products Expo in Anaheim, California where the company will be debuting new product offerings. For additional information about Plum Organics, please visit http://www.plumorganics.com.
