Behind the Box: Art Perkins, Harvie’s Operations Assistant

Behind the Box is Harvie’s way of connecting you to the people behind your weekly grocery delivery.

Meet Art Perkins, an Operations Assistant at Harvie who’s been with the company since August of 2021. He got on board with Harvie through an employee he met at a cafe — as he says, “that meeting and conversation sparked my interest when I came across the job listing for Harvie. Bonus for all, that cafe owner is now a Harvie supplier. Small world!”
