Food Shippers of America - Spring/Summer 2018 - 25

After two years in Wilkes Barre,
Raheem was promoted to lead
transportation strategy in the greater
New York City area, followed by a new
opportunity to be the logistics project
lead for Mondele¯ z's new manufacturing
facility in Salinas, Mexico.
"Every opportunity that I got I tried to
take, even though it was scary," she
said. "You don't think, in your 20s, that
you're going to be living in these rural
areas, but now I look at the value that
was added to my career and I wouldn't
have changed a thing."
New directions
After managing logistics on a large
scale, Raheem wanted a different
challenge. So, when the job of director
of inbound logistics opened up for Blue
Apron, she was ready for it.
"I've always been really passionate
about healthy, fresh food. I think the
environment is changing, and we
are all starting to be aware of what's
going into our bodies," she said. "Blue
Apron was a natural transition for me;
I wanted to do something a bit smaller,
and I really wanted to see the fruits of
my labor come to fruition."
At Blue Apron, Raheem led a team
that managed the transportation
and logistics for food coming in from
thousands of different farms. "It
was chaotic, but such a wonderful
experience; I just loved it. Blue Apron
grew like a rocket ship; they are almost
six years old now, but when I joined,
our growth was tremendous year
over year." She learned many things,
including the importance of processes
in ensuring a stable supply chain.
She wasn't looking for another
job when a friend, Brett Podolsky,
approached her in 2017 about joining
The Farmer's Dog, a two-year-old
company he had co-founded with
Jonathan Regev. Podolsky was
inspired to open the business when
he found that his Rottweiler Jada,
who had chronic stomach problems,

was much healthier when he actually
prepared her meals using high-quality
ingredients. Today The Farmer's Dog
delivers pre-portioned, ready-to-serve
meals for dogs to customers in all 50

states. The company uses only humangrade, USDA ingredients and vitamins
in the meals, which are customized
to each dog's weight and dietary
requirements.
