Meet the Team – City Palate’s Janet

BLTrun with lettersJanet brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in marketing and events planning to the team. She is a mom like the rest of the team and a Brand Manager with City Palate.

Janet is a food advocate, adult educator and business and communications strategist. Her love of food comes from her Saskatchewan roots and time spent in England and Japan, where food and farming were part of her work. Her love for agriculture was sparked while studying ethno botany at Purdue University, quite a departure from her University of Victoria business degree.

Over the span of her agri-food career, she has pioneered a number of agri-food initiatives from the launch of the Canadian Culinary Tourism Committee to the development of the Canadian Language Benchmarks, a guide to help new Canadians, who often find one of their first jobs in the manufacturing sector, safely work on the job. She is the chair of the Calgary Food Committee, currently assessing the food system in Calgary with a view to developing new municipal policies and bylaws to encourage greater supply and access to local food.
