Lisa Malmarowski

Tiger Balm was Lisa Malmarowski’s gateway to the natural products world. As a product buyer for a chain of local pharmacies, she stumbled into the booth of the importer at a trade show and the rest, as they say, is history. Her co-op history began in sales for North Farm Co-op, a wholesale distributer where she peddled everything from hummus to soap to retailers across the upper Midwest. In 1997, she joined the team at Outpost as Marketing Manager. Since then, she has seen the co-op through multiple remodels and expansions, including 4 new stores, and helped develop their wholesale division. She serves on the board of a local business improvement district and participates in marketing committees for the National Co-op Grocers organization. When she’s not co-producing Outpost’s award winning quarterly magazine Graze, you’ll find her traveling, working on mixed media art or cooking in her cozy bungalow kitchen.
