    As a strategy manager at Weight Watchers and food blogger, Kat realized that American consumers were looking for a better way to shop for food. While working on her MBA at Columbia Business School, Kat wanted to combine her passion for food and previous experience in food/media/tech to create a company that she herself would want to support as a consumer -- one that would have a positive impact on the lives of millions of people in the world.
