About Beekeeper Marketing:
Beekeeper Marketing was founded in 2007 to help great natural/organic/specialty consumer packaged goods companies (grocery, pet, and health/personal care) reach their sales potential on Amazon and other eCommerce channels. We focus on developing and executing sales, marketing, and supply chain strategies. Have a look at our capabilities deck for more information about our services. With Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods Market in 2017, our business is thriving and growing even faster than before. Beekeeper is a scrappy, dynamic, quickly-growing company with a portfolio of 130+ consumer packaged goods clients. We pride ourselves in being a hardworking, results-oriented group that strives for a corporate culture that champions integrity, flexibility, kindness, and fun. Beekeeper was acquired by Advantage Solutions in August 2018 and operates as a business unit within Advantage’s Digital Technology Division. Join us!
