Good Food Enterprises is a brand that seeks to own, support or incubate businesses that participate in the Good Food Movement. Their are four key elements of "good food" that are supported through this business model: 1. Healthful, allowing people to thrive; 2. Sustainably grown, environmentally friendly; 3. Fair, exploiting no one in its creation; 4. Affordable, with equal access for all.
I bring the background of a farm boy, a public health graduate who specialized in wellness education, a trained chef, co-founder of a successful nonprofit and a social enterprise business owner and supporter to the table of the good food conversation.
