I help food businesses deliver exceptional new products
that create a meaningful impact in the world of food.
HI, I'M ANNIE
Founder of the art of GRATE Food, a business dedicated to delivering new products that create a meaningful impact in the world of food. I have an inherent love of food, so much so that I have dedicated my lifelong career to it. Having grown up on a farm in Cavan in Ireland, my heritage is deeply rooted in natural food and I am a big advocate of eating well to live longer. To me, food really is my medicine.
I pursued a career in food from an early age. Following a masters degree in food business obtained at University College Cork, I went on to spend 20 years in both food manufacturing and retail, with Kerry Foods and Superquinn and the latter 10 years leading the product development team, for the world-renowned food halls at Harrods in London.
I have an eye for developing new products and concepts. To me, food has to have meaning and significance, and it is finding a niche in the market for these foods that motivates me and gives me pure joy.
