Interview with Earl Fultz – 01.28.16

Earl Fultz is the 92 year old Founder and CEO of cHarissa, a small, artisanal food company on the North Fork of Long Island, rocking the food world and winning awards. His business is a love story, a tribute to his late wife Gloria, who transformed an old family recipe, to appeal to her American family and friends. The cHarissa rub and spice is an all natural condiment, which is free of sugar, gluten and any chemical additives, using cumin, lemon, sea salt and olive oil.

In order to help make his dream come true, Earl partnered with Jeri Woodhouse, from a Taste of the North Fork, to help market and grow the business.
