    The Importance of Food Biodiversity with Tender Greens Co-Founder Erik Oberholtzer

    Did you know that there are over 1,000 different types of bananas, over 4,500 kinds of potatoes and more than 800 breeds of cattle?

    So why is it that most of us – yes, even the most adventurous of foodies – have probably never tried even a fraction of these foods?

    Today’s guest, Erik Oberholtzer is here to talk to us all about this food diversity challenge.

    Erik is a chef and the founder of popular healthy food chain Tender Greens. Through his latest initiative, Food 4 Ever, he is teaching people about food and agro biodiversity and the effects it can have on our health and the health of our planet.

    In my conversation with Erik, we discuss:


    What exactly is food biodiversity and why is it a key factor in improving major problems like climate change?
    What food entrepreneurs, chefs and consumers can do to promote food biodiversity
    Why curiosity plays an important role in creating a more sustainable food system

    We also chat about his favorite lesser-known ingredients of the moment and business ideas for aspiring food entrepreneurs based on gaps he sees in the market.

    Connecting Communities Through Food and Technology

The app also features a 1-to-1 chat that allows users to connect with their neighbors while still practicing social distancing.

    In this interview, we discuss: 


    How Cup O' Sugar is helping people find much-needed ingredients while maintaining social distancing
    How we can use technology to make real life connections 
    How this app is helping combat food waste
    Why food remains the biggest connector of communities
