Samantha Tannor (FTMBA ’20) joins us today to talk about her career in food, the FTMBA experience, and Tannor’s Tea, her own plant-based superfood concentrate company. Sam graduated from college at USC and went into the grocery industry as a District Manager at ALDI, a low-cost grocery chain. She talks about how that experience helped prepare her for life as an entrepreneur, how Haas has helped, and her love for matcha.
We get to hear some fascinating details on Tannor’s Tea around product development, including how she found a food scientist to help refine the product taste. Furthermore, Sam is one of the co-presidents for Food@Haas and speaks about incorporating Food Summit into Career Week, and how Food@Haas is a blend of both a career-focused and social club here at Haas.
