We love being around exciting new food ideas and meeting the people behind them.

Think of us as an extension of your team.

Through setting up our own food businesses, we’ve learned all the tricks and made all the mistakes (so you don’t have to)! We respect that it’s your business with your recipes, products and plans, but things will come up – both opportunities and challenges – that you won’t expect and might not know how to manage.

Whether it’s training, an introduction to an expert, or a coaching conversation, we’ve got your back.

Jane Del Rosso

Owner, The Business of Food

Jane Del Rosso is the business guru who has seen it all. She took the leap many years ago—leaving her corporate career to train in cooking and pursue her passion for all things food. A natural food incubator, she established The Business of Food in 2009 to bring together her business savvy, passion for food, and love of supporting other small businesses.

Luis Osorio

A former executive with one of the largest agribusinesses in Latin America, Luis is your man if you need to know anything about product development and food innovation. He helps set the direction of the business, gives structure to the programs we run, and has a particular passion for the social purpose side of food business.

Kylie Suich

Kylie is perfectly placed to support new food businesses, after successfully launching one herself. Her first-hand experience combined with her ‘day job’ as a Project Manager, make her the perfect go-to for any start-up foodie business and a much-valued member of our team.

Kristy Lawrence

Kristy is the newest member of the team, and as a Food Technologist, she is excited to share her experience in product development, process improvement, and large-scale food manufacturing with you. You can meet Kristy at our many fabulous events and workshops and she will also be adding another dimension to the coaching team.
