Working in food safety and Public Health for over a decade, I’ve experienced many incidents where men, women, parents and children were affected by food-borne illness. Some were mild cases, others were a parents’ worst nightmare.

I witnessed food businesses destroyed and food business owners devastated.

If it wasn't a food safety incident that destroyed their business, it was the lack of planning or business knowledge that was the knock out blow. I found that many people, especially new Canadians, started a food business because they can cook - and oh boy can they cook! The problem is being a good cook doesn't make you a good business owner.

Over the years, I've worked with hundreds of food business owners, from small convenience stores to fully automated manufacturing facilities, and have also earned a Masters in Business Administration degree, so now it's time for me to give back.

This is why I started LeanRhino! I am passionate about food business, and food safety and want to help people start and run amazing food businesses. Some of them, will change the world!

Will you join me?
