“In the absence of the truth, all of us stand helpless to defend ourselves, our families and our health,
which is the greatest gift we have. Robyn O’Brien’s courageous pursuit is an example of
how we can all do our parts to protect the health of our families.”
A former financial and food industry analyst Robyn O’Brien triggered an allergic reaction in the food industry when she asked: “Are we allergic to food or what’s been done to it?”
She has helped to lead a food awakening among consumers, corporations and politicians. Food companies responding to Robyn’s work include Kraft, Coca Cola, Burger King, Chipotle, Nestle, Target and others. She sheds light on how the changing landscape of food and health are impacting the food industry and our economy.
Robyn graduated as the top woman in her class from business school before working as an equity analyst on a global portfolio team. She is regarded as an expert on children’s health policy, called “food’s Erin Brockovich” by Bloomberg and The New York Times and has been named by SHAPE Magazine as a “Women To Shape the World”, by Forbes Woman as one of “20 Inspiring Women to Follow on Twitter,” and by The Discovery Channel as one of its 15 Top Visionaries.
Robyn’s work has also been recognized by individuals such as Dr. Oz, Robert Kennedy Jr., Ted Turner and Prince Charles. She is the founder of the visionary organization AllergyKids which is focused on restoring the integrity of the food supply and the health of children. Her work is seen in Food, Inc. filmmaker Robert Kenner’s 2012 video, Labels Matter, and with Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.
