Better Food Stories: Cozymeal

This is episode four of the Better Food Stories interview series, which includes conversations with the entrepreneurs behind some of today’s newest and most innovative food brands.

There’s nothing that brings people together like food. Whether it’s gathering around the holiday table with your family or meeting a new friend at the local farmer’s market, food has a way of sparking conversation and creating connections like few other things in this world do. And that’s exactly what Samad Nasserian had in mind when he launched his company, Cozymeal.

I recently sat down Samad to learn how his love for food inspired him to create a Cozymeal, plus:

  • How he’s helping chefs grow and diversify their income

  • How Cozymeal is bringing people together and building community
     through food

  • How Samad took what he learned working as head of IT for one of the largest freelancer platforms on the internet and applied it to the food industry

  • What he thinks about the food industry in the U.S. vs his hometown 
    of Germany
