I’ve got a background in business sustainability, and dabbled in the world of alternative finance for a few years before realising that the future of food was my cup of tea.
I’m one of the two co-founders of Snact – a healthy snack brand that exists to make the world a better place one bite at a time. We make our snacks with surplus produce, that is fruit & veg that would be discarded for aesthetic reasons or because of gluts in production.
I previously worked with the Food Assembly, a disruptive retail model enabling direct trade between local producers and their local communities.
I love exploring ways in which we can build a better food system, specifically looking at the roles we all play in it – whether it be as producers, growers, eaters or just as people who enjoy sharing food.
I’m a London Leader (a programme run by the London Sustainable Development Commission).
