He helped advise and support a wide range of companies locally and internationally on developing and commercialising new food, beverage and nutraceutical products.

He is passionate about promoting the best of New Zealand to the world developing high-end, sustainable, plant-based products that provide a meaningful benefit to consumers with a focus on the brain.
After finishing his industrial design degree with first-class honours, Zac, as you can expect, is ‘the design guy’. He has spent over 12 years developing solutions for multinational clients in the fields of transport, consumer electronics, healthcare and aeronautics working at some of the world’s top design firms. Zac is an avid surfer, part-time funny-man and seriously good at handstands. Zac’s goal is to fuse the disciplines of design, food-technology and neuroscience and become the thought leader in this space globally.
