CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with Oma’s Pride president and CEO Capri Brighenti and her son Adam DeJulius, the company’s COO. 

Brighenti said her grandmother, an entrepreneurial spirit, started the business in 1950 when she began selling eggs from the family’s Avon farm. 

Miller’s Food expanded to include the Oma’s Pride pet food brand in 2001. Keeping it in the family, DeJulius took over as COO three years ago.  

“You know in your heart the work that gives you meaning,” DeJulius said. “I knew in a way that this was always pulling at me. 

“There were some serendipitous happenings that brought this together. 

“Mom and I have always worked well together and saw things mostly through the same light and have the same drive which is unique.”
