Cecilia Lindström is the Head of Open Innovation & Partnerships at Arla Foods Innovation. Besides future proofing Arla Foods by having external partners deliver to their innovation agenda she frequently speaks at conferences and events in order to inspire others and gain new inspiration around sustainable food innovation.
Her academic background, a PhD in Biotechnology and Nutrition and long-term focus on external collaborations have paved the way towards where she stands today. Cecilia is passionate about changing the conversation about the future food system to be based on scientifically validated principles not on perceived or emotionally felt benefits. She believes collaborative efforts across the whole value chain and industries are needed in order to solve our broken food system. We got here together, let’s find the solutions together.
