Beth Ford, CEO, Land O'Lakes
Land O’ Lakes. You probably think of it as the company that sells butter. Dig a little deeper and you’ll realize it also sells pet food and seeds for crops. But the Land O’ Lakes C-E-O, Beth Ford, likes to describe it as an “insight-driven tech company.” Why? Well, Land O Lakes is a farmer-owned co-op. This means the company has a very close relationship with the farmers that grow its products.
