Merijn Dols

A passionate Circular Economy scholar, system thinker, activist and intrapreneur (with over 15 years of experience in design and innovation in the food industry).
‘I made it my mission to be a driving force in a food revolution, a paradigm shift. I believe in a future of food as a force for good. I want to leave a world, in which economic, social and ecological interests are aligned. Food can fuel this system shift through innovation, the adaptive power of the system, towards a resilient food system with a positive impact, by design.’
