Crafting the Future of Food: Emily's Journey from an Engineer to a FoodTech Founder

In today's founder spotlight, we delve into the story of Emily Farrar, a US-born engineer turned climate tech innovator and her journey from a family of scientists to co-founding the forward-thinking startup on the edge of food tech and climate tech - Genuine Taste.
