Susie Wyshak

Susie connected the dots to combine her loves of supporting food makers and marketing. Into what? A Good Food business strategist and one-woman personal think tank for food entrepreneurs. Based in Oakland, California, she Susie sourced artisan food for several online marketplaces (like Foodzie), planned (and scrapped) her own snack-food business (an important lesson), co-chaired the Good Food Awards Confections committee, kicked off the U.S. Fair Trade cocoa program early on, and wrote her MBA thesis on Consumer Attitudes Toward Giving Chocolate as a Gift.
