Sharon is passionate about the power of food businesses to lead the world to a better place.
While many aim to influence food production and consumption patterns, Sharon believes it is those in the business of food who have the superpower needed to really shift the dial.
It takes vision, informed values and an influential voice to inspire change - all areas of expertise and excellence that reside with those working in the business of food.
Sharon believes in inspiration as a way to create change, and works with leaders to develop strategies that build resilience by enabling them to lead through conviction.
Her book Food for a Better Future - a new direction for the global business of food, provides three essential ingredients food businesses will need to build trust, maintain relevance and accelerate business growth in the years ahead.
Sharon's keynote presentation: Food Businesses as Leaders of Change - building resilience in times of disruption, outlines a vision for food, a way forward and a platform for growth built on creating meaningful connections with consumers.

Sharon and her team have been instrumental in providing the guidance and expert advice we have needed over the past decade to change perceptions about eggs and to put them firmly back on the plates of Australian consumers.

Over the last 5 years we have been reviewing our healthy bread range & how it best fits our customer needs. Sharon has been a vital part of this process working with Bakers Delight to determine how each loaf benefits different customer segments & recommending how to address & close the gaps that existed. On top of this, Sharon has been a real partner who is proactive in sharing information she comes across that could benefit us. I would recommend Sharon for anyone looking for knowledge & business solutions around the healthy eating space.

I approached Sharon when the Jamaica Blue Brand was undergoing a redevelopment of their healthier food offering. Sharon helped us by creating specific criteria which delivered recipes that were both nutritiously beneficial and within a specified kJ range. Sharon was able to deliver this criteria whilst still keeping true to the Jamaica Blue food philosophy with achievable criteria within the QSR space. The result was a new contemporary product range available to Jamaica Blue franchise partners and their customers which encouraged healthy and clean eating across Australia. I found it comforting to know that Jamaica Blue had the expertise involved in creating this range to assure the Brand is in line with current trends and meeting healthy eating guidelines.
I would recommend Sharon & the team at Food & Nutrition Australia to those who require nutrition expertise & support to develop clear criteria to guide food development while complementing brand values.
