Ive written advertising and marketing materials for vegetable oil, chili, salad dressing, soup, crackers, yogurt, milk, snacks, frozen foods, fruit juice, chocolate, coffee, fresh produce, and wine. And non-edibles such as cleaners, lotions, soap, pet treats, and baby supplies. Along the way, my copywriting has built brands, moved products, and increased market share.
