Building brands and products that are good for people and our planet. 

Nutrition & Sustainability Strategy For Mission-Driven Business

We know what a difference maker sustainably produced, nourishing food can be.  The global pandemic has brought into laser focus for consumers the importance of diet in maintaining healthy mind and body.  In late 2020, 77% of survey responders declared 'health and wellbeing' as a major driver of their food purchases. 
Sustainably produced food is also crucial in our fight against climate change, deemed the "defining issue off our time." Mission-driven brands can be leaders in bringing products to the world that sustain better health, while conserving vital land, energy and water resources while being good to those who produce them.   

We are inspired to help you be part of the solution. 

Strategic Nutrition Design provides services that incorporate best practices customized for your business. These strategies are sustainable, scalable and differentiating so that you can achieve business success...all while doing right by people and our planet.

Businesses We've Proudly Served

Alison worked on a complex project full of ambiguity and tight deadlines; she was poised, professional, incredibly strategic, and proactive. She consistently thought ahead through a holistic lens to offer suggestions or solutions before we even knew there may be an issue or question. The deliverables and communication far exceeded our expectations. Alison went above and beyond at every opportunity, and I’m looking forward to working with her again in the future - hopefully many times over! She is truly the best RD I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.
--Jaimi St. John, VP Culinary Innovation at Everytable

"Alison has a natural sense for leadership and demonstrates an uncanny ability to point out the necessary considerations that matter in decision making. She is extremely knowledgeable and offered keen insights when we were crafting our company's brand story. Her ability to juggle between creativity and precise execution made a great difference in the projects we did together. I highly recommend her."
--Mara Behrens, Head of Marketing & Design, Chowbotics at Doordash

With our love for all things culinary, along with experience and know-how, let’s collaborate on ways we can help you maximize delicious without sacrificing nutritious.
