Joe Blunda

CEO

Joe is a passionate entrepreneur with a background in M&A due diligence and business strategy who came to the food industry in 2016. As a boy, Joe got his first ‘taste’ of the local food scene when a family connection with a large native blueberry growing operation supplied Joe and his brothers with berries to sell on a roadside stand in Maine.

Joe founded a food startup prior to joining Forager, and worked for David Stone as Head of Strategy and COO before taking the lead CEO role at the beginning of 2019.
