At Esca Bona we want to change the food system. And we're doing it by creating space for passionate people to collaborate on action-oriented solutions. With a service project, partnerships with industry leaders like B Lab, and a focus on The Fix (an opportunity for brands to 'pitch' their problems and get feedback from industry veterans), we want results. Esca Bona is an intimate opportunity for everyone to participate, ask questions, and bring their solutions to create a more regenerative, transparent, just, nutritious and delicious food system.
Let's talk about ingredient sourcing, transparency, and getting women and people of color in leadership positions. Big Food and newcomers alike need to have a seat at the table to discuss how we're going to fix food.
