In 2015, Rachel Drori realized she was not taking care of herself. She had all of the health and nutrition information she could ever want, but no time to put it into action. She was tired of calling a handful of trail mix lunch at 3pm and wanted to find a way to eat delicious, nourishing food without spending her entire weekend meal prepping.
So, Rachel set out to solve our modern eating dilemma by making the food we want to consume not only convenient, but also clean, delicious and personalized. Daily Harvest is reimagining the way Americans eat by using organic fruits and vegetables picked at their nutritional peak, frozen on the farm within hours of harvest, chef-crafted for taste, and delivered in a pre-prepped format directly to customers’ doorsteps.
From the early days of hand-delivering homemade smoothies from her car, Rachel has built Daily Harvest into one of the fastest-growing consumer brands in the U.S. In December 2017, Daily Harvest announced a Series B funding round of $43 million led by Lightspeed Venture Partners and VMG Partners. A-listers have invested in Daily Harvest including Gwyneth Paltrow, Serena Williams, Bobby Flay, and more. Today, Daily Harvest has expanded to more than 65 recipes including Smoothies, Harvest Bowls, Oat Bowls, Chia Bowls, Soups, Lattes, and ready-to-snack Bites.
Prior to founding Daily Harvest, Rachel harnessed her skills as a customer-centric marketing executive, leading teams at Gilt Groupe, American Express, and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. Rachel holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from Columbia Business School. She currently resides in New York City with her family.
