Sam Kashani is the Country Director of Too Good To Go, the world’s number one app for fighting food waste, and is championing the movement into the Canadian market.
Sam moved to Toronto as a first generation immigrant more than 23 years ago. His first job in Canada was in the foodservice industry where he saw first hand that consumer demand for speed and selection had a devastating by-product of increasing food waste! Since then, his love for food has taken him to more than 20 countries around the world discovering many new cuisines, transforming his relationship with food from “love” to “respect”. Sam is a graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University with a business degree and an MBA in Strategic Management and has held multiple leadership positions in both global and scale up organizations. He was also named Marketing Magazine’s “30 under 30”. He has always focused on balancing performance with purpose and is determined to kick off this movement in Canada and empower Canadians coast to coast to join the fight against food waste.
