I was responsible for...
Frontier is an organic and all natural spice company. This summer I worked with Frontier Naturals creating new products. I worked with shelf life studies, and other small projects. I worked very independently throughout the summer.

I accomplished...
Over the course of the summer, I created a total of 16 spice blends for three different product lines that will be on store shelves in 2016.

I will never forget...
At the end of the summer I gave a presentations to a group of people in the company, including the CEO. I was able to explain all that I did throughout the summer, and have them try some of the products. They loved the products, and I could not be more excited to see something I created on a grocery store shelf in a few months.

Advice for others...
For this internship you will be working almost completely on your own. Don't stress about things, and focus on one project at a time.
