Durell joins the team as Sales Manager. Durell comments, “I am excited to start a new challenge with North Shore Living and look forward to working with the team to further develop their already extensive customer base. I am fortunate to be joining such a respected company that prides itself on delivering the freshest living produce on the planet to many of the top retailers in the country. Fresher longer is a real thing here. We sell living herbs and microgreens with the roots still attached so they stay alive until you cut them!”

Our new innovations and the increasing demand from our customers led us to look for an addition to our team who will fit in with our ethos of innovation and exceptional service, and it is very fortunate that we were able to find someone of her caliber to fulfill this role. I’m confident that Durell will play a key role in solidifying our base and expanding our presence nationally.”
