Brandt comes to Fall Creek with a wealth of experience in the produce industry.  For the past six years, he was director of international business development for San Lucar Fruit, an industry leader in the delivery of high-quality fruits and vegetables to the global market.  Previously, Brandt was a key member of the Aldi Supermarkets team in Spain, where he was involved in both market analysis and new business and product development.

Brandt is based in Valencia, Spain, and reports to Matt Kramer, who recently was hired as Fall Creek’s director of product development and commercialization.

“Holger is a wonderful addition to the Fall Creek team,” says Kramer. “He is well-connected in the produce marketplace, understands the grower and retailer perspectives, and recognizes the global potential of licensed products.”

“I’ve always felt that Fall Creek is a very special company because of the people and the vision,” said Brandt. “Fall Creek is a reliable supplier and trusted partner to blueberry growers worldwide. I see enormous growth potential for the new global business unit and licensing portfolio. I can add value negotiating in different countries and cultures, and I enjoy it.”
