Chris Lowrey of Austin Eastciders will cover how small food and beverage companies successfully manage the innovation and new product development process despite often shorter timelines and limited resources.
Chris is currently the Brand Manager for a local craft cidery, Austin Eastciders. Prior to Austin Eastciders, Chris held marketing roles at Amplify Snack Brands and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group and was a high school biology teacher in North Carolina. He loves a great breakfast taco and coffee combo and strongly believes puffy vests are the most versatile clothing item for Austin weather.
