Raise your hand if this sounds familiar 🙋♀️… you go to the grocery store to pick up some food and notice that every item seems to have a different term on the label: organic, regenerative, cage-free, pasture-raised, local, grass-fed, grass-finished…
There are so many buzzwords out there, but what does it all mean and why does any of it matter?
How can you learn what’s important to you when it comes to food sourcing?
Answering those questions is today’s guest, Justine Reichman, the founder and CEO of NextGen Purpose, whose goal is to educate consumers on how to understand the food system.
In this episode of the SHE podcast, Justine and I dig into all you need to know about the food system!
Justine Reichman is the Founder and CEO of NextGen Purpose and the host of the Essential Ingredients podcast. Her goal is not only to help strengthen individual better-for-you food businesses but to raise global awareness through education, so the public can make more informed healthy choices.
