In Bellew’s new role, he will oversee and guide Ocean Mist Farm’s Northern California farming operations and work to increase cost efficiencies, quality and yield. Bellew’s expertise and focus on farming will allow him to continue building and coaching talent across the production and farming department and focus on areas where Ocean Mist Farms can utilize science and technology to foster efficiency.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the performances of these three individuals,” said Chris Drew, president and CEO of Ocean Mist Farms. “Bellew, Ruiz and Alameda have all shown growth in their individual areas of expertise year over year. As a result of this development, the promotions of these three key figures at our company positions Ocean Mist Farms for a new era of continued success.”

Ruiz’s background and experience with Ocean Mist Farms’ harvesting operations and equipment engineering has propelled him to lead the way to increasing efficiency, minimizing product loss, capitalizing on higher yields and placing a stronger focus on mechanized harvest opportunities.

In his new role, Ruiz will manage the commodity management department including both internal and external harvest companies and procurement operations across Ocean Mist Farms’ different production regions.

Alameda’s past role as logistics manager has allowed him to glean knowledge of Ocean Mist Farms’ entire supply chain, how it works and where it has opportunity to improve. In his new role, Alameda will oversee all post-harvest supply chain operations including inventory management and flow, packaging, QA, as well as customer and regulatory compliance.
