Bhaumik took over Parabanks Fruit Market in March 2019. He was ambitious and hopeful as he embarked on entering the fresh produce industry with no relevant experience! He studied a Master of Science and Organic Chemistry back in India but was left to start again within the new world of fresh produce. Lucky for Bhaumik, Joe, the original owner of Parabanks Fruit Market became his mentor. Joe has been in the industry for over 27 years and has been happy to help teach him the ropes. While Joe shares his wisdom, Bhaumik has also paved his own way by creating relationships with local growers. He visits the market at 5am every morning then works the entire day in the shop.
