Chuck Marble of Elevation Brands (Encore)

Sunday, August 26, 2012 - 10:00pm

In an encore episode, Steve D'Agostino interviews Chuck Marble, CEO of Elevation Brands, which is based in Framingham. They talk about bringing mission-driven foods to the table.

Newly formed Elevation Brands is determined to make the world a better, healthier place by bringing mission-driven foods to the table. The company will source, manufacture and market products that help solve common environmental, sustainability and health issues. Elevation Brands’ two charter brands are pioneers in their respective categories. Ian's Natural Foods, of which Chuck Marble had been CEO immediately prior to heading up Elevation Brands, produces 30 all-natural, allergy-friendly versions of favorite foods, including chicken nuggets and French bread pizza. These give children and adults whose diets are severely restricted by food allergies and Celiac disease the ability to enjoy the same foods as their friends and families. Blue Horizon Wild uses only sustainably sourced, wild-caught fish and shellfish in its frozen-seafood entrees, sides and snacks.

The formation of Elevation Brands was led by Renewal2, a Vancouver-based social-investment fund supporting companies that create healthy, sustainable environmental and social impacts. While Elevation Brands will provide all operations, manufacturing, sales and marketing activities, both Ian's and Blue Horizon Wild will continue to be marketed as distinct consumer brands.
