Andrew Howell, new vice president of operations at Upward Farms

Upward Farms has named seasoned supply chain and operations leader Andrew Howell as Vice President of Operations. With more than 20 years of experience in the manufacturing industry, Howell is responsible for overseeing the supply chain strategy on behalf of the company and developing best-in-class systems to further propel Upward Farms as it enters a new phase of growth. He will report to Jason Green, Chief Executive Officer, and Cofounder.

"We are grateful and excited to welcome Andrew to the Upward Farms team as we continue to scale our category-defining sustainable food brand," said Green. "The skills and leadership demonstrated by Andrew’s track record in optimizing distribution networks, managing logistics, and overseeing complex supply chains will contribute to our success in building a disruptive, best-in-class supply chain."

Mr. Howell joins Upward Farms from Sabra Dipping Co., where he played an integral part in helping transform the company from a start-up to a leading fresh dips company in the United States. He rose from Facilities Engineering Manager to Senior Director of Operations and ultimately VP of Transformation and Change Management over 12 years. During his tenure at Sabra, Andrew was responsible for a 250,000-square-foot facility with over 600 employees and ultimately oversaw all North American logistics for the company, including customer service, distribution, inventory, and warehousing.

"I’m thrilled to join a company that is making a positive impact on the world every day, addressing climate change head-on, and creating a standalone ecosystem that commercially demonstrates a new way of sustainable farming," said Howell. "Having the opportunity to leverage my experience as a supply chain leader in order to bring great products to consumers at scale is very exciting. I’m passionate about developing people and teams within the organization, and Upward Farms has an exceptionally dedicated and talented staff. I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together."
