Anya Fernald has combined her expertise in craft food making and business management into a force for change in California and around the world. She is a model for how a young professional can take her dreams and passions and turn them into something viable and sustainable. Ms. Fernald started as a cheese maker in Europe and then honed her management skills by developing business and marketing plans for small-scale cheese makers in Sicily. Following that, she was engaged in other activities to support small, artisan food production in Europe. Since returning to her native California, Ms. Fernald has been involved in numerous sustainable food activities, most prominently as co-founder and CEO of Belcampo, a group of innovative agricultural companies in California, Belize, and Uruguay. She also works on slow food and farm-to-school activities.
