Colorful Harvest
“I don’t know what the future holds but I don’t think I am done yet. I am always looking for that next challenge.”
Salinas, CA
Family: 

Ranno can’t talk too long before alluding to his family, which includes his wife, 13 year old Dylan and 10-year old Grace. “We are hardcore devoted San Francisco Giant fans,” he said. Not so hard to do in 2010 and 2012 when they were the World Champions, but a little more challenging as they struggled through 2013. “We are with them through thick and thin,” he said.

History: 

Doug hails from Sacramento where he graduated from Cal State Sacramento and joined the region’s top supermarket, Raley’s, as his first career stop. A dozen years later, he left the buy side of the fresh produce business to join Chiquita, where he stayed for eight years working in a variety of positions in several different geographic locations including Cincinnati and Los Angeles. Green Giant in Idaho was his next stop before going back to retail for a position with Wild Oats in Colorado. A few years passed which brought Doug back to California, Salinas and the starting of a new company, Colorful Harvest.
