Ronni Kahn is the founding director of OzHarvest, a not for profit organisation that rescues surplus food from restaurants, retailers, food outlets and corporate kitchens to feed communities at risk.
Ronni set out to make a difference in this world – to create an organisation with sound business ethics that would positively impact society. Her previous experience in the hospitality industry led her to question where all the excess food went that was the natural fallout in the food and beverage industry. When she saw that no organisation in Sydney was collecting perfectly edible excess food and delivering it to people in need on a regular and professional basis, she created OzHarvest, which does just that.

Today, OzHarvest collects over 5 tonnes of food a day, and delivers the equivalent of 15,000 meals a day from more than 900 food donors throughout Australia, freeing up valuable resources for charities to spend on education and rehabilitative programs. Over nine million meals have been rescued and redistributed since Ronni began her quest in 2004.

In this talk Ronni discusses growth of the organisation’s social impact over the past eight years. Taking an in-depth look at the development of corporate partnerships and leading a discussion around social responsibility.
