Five Minutes With Our WIA Sponsor: Motif FoodWorks

By Michelle Pelletier Marshall, Women in Agribusiness Media (July 13, 2021)

Please enjoy below our second in a series of interviews with some of our 2021 Women in Agribusiness Summit sponsors (and see the first interview with Corteva here).

For today’s post, we spoke with Michele Fite, who is chief commercial officer and start-up strategy officer for Motif FoodWorks. Motif FoodWorks is a different kind of ingredient innovation company that focuses on the promise of plant-based foods by making them better tasting, more nutritious and so desirable that people actually crave them.

For our 10th anniversary Summit this fall, September 21-23 in Minneapolis (yes, we will be live, in-person and do have many registering and excited to gather together again!), Motif FoodWorks is a Student Sponsor, which helps defray the cost for an agricultural college student to travel to and attend the Summit, and provides the student with introductions and connections in the sector.

To note, Michele has several times been a featured speaker at Women in Agribusiness Summits (she will speak about Understanding the Plant-based Consumer at this fall’s Summit).

Tune in here or click the image above to listen to WIA Today's conversation with Michele, which covers Motif’s four guiding principles for success in ag – people, process, technology and passion – and how the WIA mission resonates with their own goals.
