Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis: Amy’s Kitchen.
Sorry about the sound! We don’t have the sound from the second camera (which was connected to the mic—our bad). Nevertheless, they’re worth [closely] listening to! Great company, great people—and here’s why.
Waylon served as video host at Natural Products Expo West, the biggest “eco” foods and products gathering in the world, where small companies go to make it big, and huge company go to gobble up promising newcomers, and groceries go to see who they want to feature on their shelves. Among this grand coming together of “business” and “green,” Waylon admires a few companies for walking their talk. Amy’s Kitchen is one such. Here’s why:
