Biography
I worked for a wholesale Seafood company from 1976 to 1996. I started as a after school helper at the age of 13 ,then a driver to a salesman, to manager to owner. Along the way there were many learning curves. I left the food business (buyout) for two years to try beverages. I did well but was like a fish out of water. After returing to the food industry I went from total hands on to white collar. After 7 years working the commodity end I decided to leave and start my own company.
The company imports and distribute frozen seafood from SE Asia and South Central America. We specialize in program sales focused to food service and chain restaurant accounts.

I am now launching a new company that imports Organic Blood Orange Juice from Sicily. I am developing a 16 oz bottle and a 96 oz food service version for on premise establishments. My first container of inventory arrived and was blown away by the quality. I am looking forward to growing this company and bringing other distributors along for a great ride.

Cheers !!

Alfredo -

I sipped your wonderful juice again yesterday - could you hear me saying "Oh, Alfredo! This is fantastic!" It truly is. Is there anywhere in New England operators and just ordinary consumers can buy this? You should be in Whole Foods! Can you tell - you've won a big fan?

Hi Alfredo. Yes I recall the Blood Orange Juice. I really hope all is going well for you. I apologize for just now seeing your e-mail over here. I'll check out your site. Please feel free to contact me if you need more assistance - services@ineedtext.com. I also have a Food Blog, so if you want to send a bottle out here to California, I'll taste it and write a good post on Nibbles of Tidbits - http://www.ineedtext.com/FoodBlog/

Take care,
Shelly Borrell

Hello Susan,
Nice tp hear from you. I am not sure that our Paul King's match. Mine works for the city in the Dept of Transportation. I have one distributor in New Jersey and looking for others that will carry on their vehicles and supported by their sales staff. My Organic Blood Orange Juice is packed in an attrative 16 oz glass bottle as featured in the page photo. The key is the health benefits it provides and the supporting clinical studies. That information is found on the web site www.iojuice.com under the nutritional section. If you or any others in the group would like to sample the product I would be honored to send. An outside professional or non opinion is what I would like. Hopefully they fall in love and ask where to purchase.

Ciao,
Al

Another question- will your product have distribution in the Northeast? I see you're on Staten Island and a friend of Paul King - I do some freelancing for him.

Hi David,
I am trying to get my product into top end establishments that can support the brand exposure. I have been targeting high end specialty retailers that the press follow regularly. They do not purchase much but the idea that my product is exposed to the right crowd is rewarding enough. I am also trying to get my product into supermarket chains and chain operated convenience stores. There are similar products like mine on the market just not the same quality. Trying to get the message across in a limited market has been challenging and a good learning experience. I am reaching out to friends, aquaintences and networking to anyone that will listen and possibly help. Does your restaurant do a high end brunch? If you get an opportunity please review my website www.iojuice.com There you will see in the nutrition section what scientist and research studies have reported on the great benefits of the product. It would be great to hear back from you with your thoughts.
All the best,
Alfredo

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
