This month, we go behind the scenes at Ultimate Superfoods to chat with Packing and Shipping
Manager, Juan Velazquez.
How long have you been with Ultimate Superfoods and what are some of your responsibilities?
I’m in charge of packing and shipping at Ultimate and I’ve been here for the past three years. I make sure each order is picked, packed, and shipped properly. I also manage the tracking for each order.
Sounds like you’re pretty busy. How many orders do you handle on an average day?
We ship over a hundred orders per day – everything from a tiny box with one bottle of agave nectar for a consumer, to pallets of cacao powder for a manufacturer. We have a lot of customers who order online. Plus, the sales team submits their customers’ orders throughout the day, so the warehouse is always very busy.
What’s your favorite USF/Ojio item?
There are too many to choose from, but my favorites are the golden berries, banana spears, and mulberries. I also like the coconut oil and agave nectar – and the new flavored agaves. Oh, and I love the hemp seeds.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
The most important thing to me is spending time with my family and friends. I can’t thank God enough for blessing my life with a stable job, a beautiful family, and good friends.
Thank you for taking a moment to talk with us, Juan!
