You know you’ve made it when you make it to Oprah Winfrey’s ‘Favorite Things’ list in 2015. And Verdant Kitchen has made it.
CEO and Co-Founder Ross Harding is still celebrating the company’s new accreditation for the Ginger Infused Honey and Ginger Syrup, a Georgia Grown produce.
Winfrey selected the gift set of the two items on her “Favorite Things” list for 2015. But how did the Georgia Grown product end up in front of Oprah? According to Fox5, a friend of a friend was in New York City for a magazine event when she started discussing the mix at a social event. She said would provide Oprah with some of the products, and the rest is history.
Harding credits his friends and buyers, but also the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Grown program.
