LifeSpice is excited to introduce the newest member of our team, Chris Galat. Chris joins our Operations team as our Supply Chain Manager, based in our Chicago Headquarters. He comes to us with 12 years of supply chain experience in the food industry.

Chris’ career began as a Procurement Analyst at Hillshire Brands, where he sourced spices, seasoning, fruits, and vegetables. Following his work at Hillshire, he worked in global supply chain for Garrett Popcorn, eventually becoming the Director for their Global Supply Chain and Procurement. Chris then held positions at Kraft Heinz as a Customer Supply Chain Manager, where he worked as a conduit between customers and the operations team, and at Rose Pallet as a Supply Chain Director. Realizing he missed working in the food industry, Chris began looking for his next challenge, and was drawn to LifeSpice’s boutique feel and positive company culture.

As our Supply Chain manager at LifeSpice, Chris will play a critical role in facilitating the working relationship between our R&D Team and our vendors, managing LifeSpice operations and sourcing new ingredients. He’s looking forward to continuing to learn and grow as a supply chain leader, facing challenges head-on while supporting our expanding business. Outside of work, Chris loves spending time outdoors, going on hikes, and snowboarding. He is also active in a competitive paintball league, a hobby he has had since college. Chris is a self-proclaimed donut connoisseur and, as an avid home baker, enjoys making them himself. We look forward to seeing Chris succeed at LifeSpice with the expertise he brings to the Supply Chain team.
