Our Speaker:

Dr. Darren Burke, Founder and CEO of Outcast Foods 

Dr. Burke is a global leader in the upcycling movement. As a celebrated science-based entrepreneur focused on plant-based and social impact ideas to save the planet, he created a proprietary technology to save the nutrients in rejected food. He founded Outcast Foods to use this technology to upcycle surplus fruits and vegetables into high purity, nutrient dense, long shelf-life natural health products. Dr. Burke is a tenured university professor who first commercialized his scientific research into a new category of sports nutrition products with RIVALUS Inc. He grew the company from inception to $20M in annual revenue in five years, followed by a successful exit.
