NOSH Live, the business conference where the next generation of natural food brands comes together to explore growth, is announcing that Saffron Road founder and CEO Adnan Durrani will lead the first wave of speakers for NOSH Live on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at the Loews Beach Hotel in Santa Monica, California.
Durrani is both a brand builder and a brand backer: with its line of Halal-friendly, internationally inspired entrees, Saffron Road is the fastest-growing frozen food brand in the country, while his investment record includes a deep financial and advisory partnership in Stonyfield Farms, one of the brands that led to the popularization of the organic and natural foods movement.
Durrani will be speaking about the ways that food entrepreneurs, particularly those with mission-based companies, can structure their companies to preserve mission integrity as they achieve financial scale.
Over the course of the day, other speakers will include:
- Janica Lane, Managing Director, Piper Jaffray
- Phil Lempert, President & CEO, Consumer Insight Inc.
- Mark Sisson, Founder, Primal Kitchen
You can meet Durrani and other speakers during the Nov. 30 NOSH Live event, which will also feature the signature NOSH Live Pitch Competition. A Boot Camp for new and rising food entrepreneurs will be held on Dec. 1.
Conference registration is available online.
