Launched four years ago, Blue Apron has quickly gone from a novel curiosity to a $2 billion powerhouse and the leader of the “meal kit” pack. The 4,000-person startup passed its six-year sales target in its second year in business and now sells 8 million boxed meals each month, which adds up to $1 billion in sales. Salzberg attributes the company’s success to logistics and its team of agro-ecologists, who work with hundreds of farms to help them grow foods more sustainably and predictably. First concert: Phish.
