Brian Carr

Brian and his family live in the Northern New Jersey which gives them easy access to NY/NJ Metro area and especially NYC.

With over thirty years food sales experience selling to retailers and distributors, Brian has been in and around “better for you” food business for over 14 years. “I enjoy reading nutritional labels and seeking healthier foods. I learned about ‘better for you foods’ 20 years ago when Whole Foods and Wild Oats came into the NJ market. When looking for products, I read ingredient labels looking to avoid hydrogenated oils, HFCS, artificial flavors or colors.”

“When I was growing up, we had a vegetable garden, now we have a fruit and vegetable garden in our backyard with blackberries, strawberries, arugula, broccoli, eggplant, lettuce, radishes, zucchini and, of course, some of the best Jersey tomatoes around. We always try to have a healthy salad with our lunch or dinner meals.”

Brian enjoys exercising at the gym and walking at the track or in the nearby nature center as part of his healthy lifestyle.

“I have been selling snacks for the past six years and I feel that Snikiddy offers a great line of healthier snacks that are ‘better for you’.  I feel good about offering Snikiddy products to my family, friends and retailers.”

Brian is a US Army veteran (Active and Reserve- 7 years), graduate of Bergen Community College, Paramus, NJ (Associates-Retail Business Management) and William Paterson University, Wayne, NJ ( Bachelors- Business and Economics).

Brian is currently the Vice President of Giants of Generosity, a local charity. GOG raises funds to help people in the local community in need. “We have helped one of our own food industry colleagues who suffered traumatic brain injury in a snowmobile accident”.
