Founder and Executive Chair, Iff Chamber

I am the Founder and Executive Chair of Iff Chamber (Intercontinental Food Feature Chamber). It is a diversified non-profit enterprise working to engage, bring attention and partner to demystify the erring and drive positive change to the challenges surrounding the food system of the global society.

It is on the move in demonstrating interconnectedness and  entrepreneurship in the global public interest while upholding the highest standard of diversity, dignity and moral intellectualism in its operation. 

It is however independent, holistic and not tied totally to any special interest because Food is at the center of social-economic and health activities in the global scale.
