I'm Chris and I'm the Controller here at Love Beets. My role is to coordinate all things financial, whether it's financial reporting, budgeting, payroll, tax returns, or cash management. Some people think that I do all the boring number stuff, but you do what comes naturally...I really do all of the boring number stuff for the beets.

I love chocolate dipping! Know your train schedule -- I spent a night alone in a train station in Germany. I can clap with one hand.

Beet Salsa -- it's an excellent combination of beets, peppers, onions, and spices that deliver a touch of heat and a touch of sweet.

How do you eat your beets?

I eat our marinated baby beets right out of the container with a fork.
