Mid-day Extra: More on the cranberry industry

Jeremy Hobson Nov 24, 2011

In addition to being a day to give thanks for what we have, today is also a day for eating. And we’re going to talk food now with someone whose food products are going to be found on many dinner tables in America today: Randy Papadellis. He’s the president and CEO of Ocean Spray, and he joins us from Lakeville, Massachusetts.

In this extended interview for our Mid-day Extra, Mr. Papadellis tells us about job creation, the cranberry market in China, and why he loves his job.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
