Our Founder & Chief Taste Architect

With over 20 years experience as an executive in the food industry , Jean-Pierre Punsola is a true global food leader. After earning a Masters degree in food engineering in France, Punsola continued his education and went on to pursue an additional Masters degree in the science of oenology, followed by a degree in the program of executive general management from INSEAD, the world’s leading graduate business school.

Punsola applied this comprehensive education in a variety of positions at premium international brands in the USA, Europe and Asia. Punsola developed his expertise at Chocolat Poulain/Cadbury France and Kraft Foods with a range of roles and growing responsibilities in the quality, human resources, production and research & development functions.
