Lori Taylor, founder and CEO of The Produce Moms™ was a featured guest at the Wellness Your Way Festival in Denver, Friday, August 16. Lori served as the expert on produce and appeared as a panelist for the Dietitians Pick Presentation. She said she was chosen because the organizers of the festival and panel moderator, Allison Baker wanted to use The Produce Moms story as an example of how an industry comes together to collaborate and promote wellness.
“Those who attended the Wellness Your Way Festival Dietitians’ Pick will never look at the produce department or the farmers market the way they did before they heard Lori speak!” stated Aphrah Brokaw, Director of Programming and Talent for WYWF. “Lori enlightened all of us about how our fruits and veggies are grown and the best ways to enjoy them!”
Musician and wellness expert Jewel is co-founder of the Wellness Your Way Festival. In a press release for the event, Jewel is quoted as saying that WYWF is "a combination of my passions: health, wellness and music.” WYWF is sponsored by Kroger.

Says Lori, “I was thrilled to be a participant of the first Wellness Your Way Festival which was held in Cincinnati in October of 2018. When WYWF asked The Produce Moms to return for their second event in Denver last week and share the message about how the produce industry comes together to promote the role of fruits and vegetables in healthy eating it was as good as it gets!”
In September, Lori said she will continue sharing TPM’s message about increasing produce consumption when she delivers a presentation at Southeast Produce Council’s Southern Innovations Organics and Foodservice Expo (September 12 to 14 in Nashville). “I love talking about produce with consumers, but I started my career in the produce industry, and that will always be the community that I consider family!”
