Retaining a leadership position in the crowded superfoods industry through continued innovation.
Creating an improved Innovation and Product Development process led to expanding beyond traditional superfood forms into more broadly appealing snack bars and superfood Boosts, building brand awareness. In addition, the innovation and product planning sessions we created provided a funnel and screening for ideas, shortening the overall development cycle. To build brand equity among existing consumers, we led Navitas through the detailed B Corp certification process, identifying and implementing solutions to improve the overall business structure.
The new product development and launch management processes improved operating efficiencies and shortened the product development cycle, getting products to market faster. Additional shelf placements were gained, as well as expanded distribution into new channels.

“Michelle’s strategic thinking, detailed, action oriented plans and energizing persona moved our team and efforts to success. Under Michelle’s guidance we successfully entered into two new categories for the brand. Her collaborative leadership style, combined with quick analysis and solutions-focused approach, were key to getting our new products to market and on shelf. Because of this and her ability to maintain a long term vision with more immediate execution, we continue to work with Michelle on strategic innovation and process improvement projects, critical to our long term growth.”
