Feed the Truth Update

Published under Health, Introspection Apr 03, 2019

Two years ago, we announced the launch of Feed the Truth, an independent organization with a mission to improve public health by making truth, transparency and integrity the foremost values in today’s food system. To uphold the organization’s autonomy, I have not been involved in Feed the Truth’s strategic planning since pledging the initial funds. However, I’m pleased to see that they are making progress by convening an esteemed board of directors and kicking off the process to recruit an Executive Director. Special interests continue to plague society by pursuing profit at the expense of public health – directly through lobbying and indirectly through campaigns that mislead consumers. My hope is that Feed the Truth will play a role in ensuring that science and facts counteract their undue influence. Wishing best of luck to the board on their endeavors!No alt text provided for this image

April Fools

Published under KIND Apr 01, 2019

Every year, the KIND Snacks IT team uses April Fools as an excuse to celebrate our awesome CIO with an office takeover. Last year, they transformed it into a 70’s disco, and this year he arrived to find a full safari. That’s a good look for you, K!

“What we eat now is a greater cause of disease & death in the world than either tobacco or alcohol.”

The world is moving to consume more of everything, especially over processed, empty calorie foods, and the impact is staggering. We have to make a change.

“We can’t do everything. Let’s prioritize and do a few things really well.”

I’m so thankful for this advice and countless other lessons from KIND Snacks’ outgoing COO & President John Leahy over our 9 year partnership. John was a particularly good partner because he recognized that ideas and creativity are important – indeed vital – to the business, so he didn’t dismiss all my crazy ideas outright. He just helped filter the creativity and ensure discipline to identify one “wild” pursuit that we were equipped to handle at a time. Though John is retiring this year, I know his advice will endure at KIND. I can’t stop my brain from waking me at 3am with an idea, nor do I want to. What I do is surround myself with smart partners that can help me filter and operationalize them. https://bit.ly/2C7qx8s

At the grocery store, we often think items are healthy because the packaging says “good source of protein” or “excellent source of fiber” – when in reality, those products could be empty calories or full of sugar. Consumers deserve clearer labels to help them make informed decisions. That’s why KIND in partnership with a group of public health experts, is petitioning the FDA to bring more transparency to food labels by updating its nutrient content claim regulations.
