What would it look like if we completely re-designed the food system, product by product?
In this week’s episode, we speak with Julia Collins, Founder and CEO of Planet FWD, a carbon management platform for consumer companies to bring climate-friendly products to market.
Through her work with Planet FWD and more than a decade of experience leading food companies, Julia also founded Moonshot Snacks, a cracker brand that she designed from the ground up with the goal of ensuring a carbon neutral supply chain from farm to fork. In our conversation, she offers amazing insights and advice for large and next-generation food companies about how to adopt a regenerative mindset.
We speak to Julia about:
