TEDxHalifax - Jennifer Berry - Connecting to your Food

Jennifer has been involved in the food industry, locally and globally since 1993. She has worked for both entrepreneurial high growth companies such as Ocean Nutrition Canada as well as large multinational organizations including National Starch, in Halifax, Toronto and around the world. After 15 years in the food industry, she understands how the current system works. Year after year, people are becoming more and more removed from their food. Awareness of food is not top of mind for most people, but it should be. Food is vital and every day, without even realizing it, we all decide how and where our food is grown and produced. Jennifer wants to help people understand how our small, simple, local choices have an impact at home and around the world. Jennifer earned a BSc in Food Science from the University of Guelph. Throughout her career, as an active member of the food industry, Jennifer has enjoyed speaking on food and nutrition in Canada, United States, Europe and Australia to varied audiences. Creating and promoting new ideas, through relationship building is her greatest strength. Jennifer believes that community contribution is a crucial ingredient for happiness and prosperity. She currently volunteers on the Board of the Nova Scotia Food Alliance, as the Chair of FUSION Halifax, a Volunteer Facilitator for the Canadian Centre for Diversity and in the past has been a Fair Trade Educator for the Just US Development Education Society, Big Sister, Volunteer on the Feed NS Chair a Tea Committee and more. A mother of two, she loves living and working in Halifax, close to family, friends and the ocean.
