Presented By

Join us this Thursday, December 8, 2022, for a LUNCH (12:00-1:30pm) meeting at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, Continental Room, with our speaker Mike Zelkind, CEO, 80 Acres Farms.

Mike Zelkind co-founded 80 Acres Farms in 2015 and has served as CEO since its inception. Prior to this, he held executive and managerial positions at Del Monte, Sager Creek, AdvancePierre Foods, ConAgra, 99 Cents Only Stores, A.T. Kearney and General Mills. Zelkind holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Minnesota and an MBA from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School.

At 80 Acres Farms, their mission is to provide accessible, nutritious, tasty and affordable produce to everyone, especially in areas where people cannot grow produce year-round themselves. They’re able to do this by building ultra-efficient farms that maximize their footprint, use far fewer resources, and are located close to customer distribution centers. Their crops are free from pesticides and residues. They’re picked and delivered within hours, not days, which reduces food waste.
