On this Memorial Day Holiday on The Produce Industry Podcast we chat with the legendary Bo Jackson about plant-based products, West Coast Produce Expo, and the future of Jackson & Partners, LLC.
As a young boy growing up in Alabama, Vincent “Bo” Edward Jackson, developed his love for food alongside his mother cooking in the kitchen for their family of 10. Over the years, Bo’s passion for food creation grew stronger. After a legendary sport career, he was able to go back to one of his first passions starting several different food companies supplying to the beef and seafood industry.
Over this time Bo and Alex Cook, an industry veteran of food sales and marketing, started working together on creating a series of food products and quickly realized they were in alignment with their food vision of building a multi-protein, value-based food company that operated with responsibility as one of it’s core foundational pillars. Since Jackson & Partners’ inception, the company has become a leader in food and beverage, bringing innovation, technology, and flavor together to help solve restaurant and consumer needs in the marketplace while creating a better way forward for many.
