Doug Martin

Retail + Merchandising Specialist

I am the Northeast regional territory merchandiser, but I also get called to leave my territory once a month or so. I am the eyes and ears on the floor for the sales team. Every day is a different city; it's truly the nomadic lifestyle I crave. I make sure all our products are stocked, fresh, displayed properly and merchandised correctly, and I troubleshoot with team leaders and produce managers to boost sales through product awareness and target marketing.

I have been to all 48 continental Unites States. I went to standing rock Indian reservation three times to take a stand with the natives and was one of the first water protectors there for the infamous first week, MNI WICONI! I'm a cryptocurrency investor and enthusiast that believes the way the world views commerce, currency, and financial transactions is changing forever and for the good of all earth citizens.

What's your favorite Love Beets product and why?

Regular golden beets (stay tuned!) because they are beets that are GOLD and taste like CANDY!

How do you eat your beets?

On top of my salad as my veggie "meat"...I also make handmade raw or cooked vegan burgers out of mushrooms and beets.

What inspires you?

Helping to protect the destruction of the land and water as well opposing animal torture and abuse in the meat/factory farming industry.

I am a road runner/trail runner/marathoner/and tri athlete. I run over 30 miles a week and do it all powered on organic fruits and greens.
