Meet the Producer: Sylvia Tirakian
Co-owner, Harvest Song Ventures
Her childhood memories of harvest time in Armenia—filled with the sweet aroma of fruit simmering on the stove—inspired Sylvia Tirakian to partner with James Tufenkian, a pioneering designer and supplier of handmade rugs from Armenia and Tibet, to start Harvest Song Ventures, a purveyor of artisanal, exotic fruit preserves all from Armenia. By importing fresh, natural gourmet food products directly from Armenia, she felt she would hit a chord with the American palate. And she was right. From the get-go, Harvest Song has been winning awards for its delicious, jewel-colored preserves. Her first flavor was apricot, which won a sofi Gold Award in 2006 and opened up doors for the business to take off.
