Hi! I’m Rachel Zemser

No one loves food science the way I do! I started my career back in 1990 when I decided to attend the University of Massachusetts and get my degree in this special and unique field. I have worked for both small and large food companies and have had my share of successes (and disasters!) along the way. After 25 years of industry experience I ventured out on my own so I can help food companies bring their products to market.

I love to help both start up entrepreneurs as well as already established food companies. Contact me to see how we can work together.
