An Insider's view of Dawn Foods

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The Boston office is a start-up. We are in a shared space with dozens of other start-ups with lots of cool amenities and energy. The team spends lots of time collaborating on what capabilities we are going to build and how to build them. We talk. We exchange ideas. We act. Nimble. Agile. It's all very fluid. And exciting!

Gireesh Sahukar

Senior Director, Digital Technology

What projects are you most excited about?

We are building full scale, in-house, digital capabilities from scratch. The team is picking all of the platforms and solution providers to create a robust digital platform. We have complete autonomy. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. And everything we do going forward will be a first for the company (and maybe the industry)!
