We're excited to announce Sam Guernier is joining our founding LILO team as General Manager. A seasoned FMCG and marketing professional, Sam will be leading sales, marketing and operations during our next growth steps with a priority focus on Aotearoa and testing Australia and USA pilots.
Sam has worked with some super companies including Reckitt, Frucor Suntory, Yealands Wine Group and BLUNT Umbrellas and we're really excited to have his energy sharing our LILO future cakes and New Zealand fruit story.
Sam resonated with LILO's mission to do their bit to minimise waste through utilising re-valued fruit.
"There's definitely a global awakening as to how we make and consume food in a more circular way. The amount of information available means transparency amongst suppliers and customers are key."
"I'm looking forward to working with orchardists and fruit producers around the world and turning their supernatural produce into delicious desserts. Today we make great tasting cheesecakes, and there are a range of other possibilities of desserts and snacks we are already looking into. There’s nothing quite like a delicious dessert that also makes somebody feel good. It's a total win-win"
