Joy Zipper

Owner, Berlin Natural Bakery

My name is Joy Zipper and I live in Penngrove, CA but am originally from Berlin Ohio. I am the Owner/President of several manufacturing companies. Berlin Natural Bakery is a line of ancient grain baked goods sold throughout the U.S. in natural and organic retail outlets. I am also an activist for the Non GMO movement. I’ve held seminars and worked as a consultant in converting other products to Non GMO as well as converting the first and only restaurant in the state of Ohio to Non GMO. My 40 years in business have all been about hands on training. I spent 15 years in publishing, 10 years owner/operator in both the food service and the hospitality industry and 15 years owner/operator in the natural and organic industry. We are known in our industry as “purists” - meaning we are unwilling to compromise doing what is right. Instilling the values in our team members in a proactive manner versus a reactive manner when problems arise has been a game changer. Knowing that our team understands our values brings huge peace of mind to me. When problems arise I know that they will make the right decisions. One of our mottos is “we do what’s right - even if it isn’t easy.” My husband, children and I all work together in some capacity. We all live in California and are committed to helping to clean up our food supply here in the U.S.
