Maxine Roper

Co-founder of Connecting Food

Maxine Roper was born in the United Kingdom, and has been living in France for over 25 years. Passionate about food and innovation, she had been working in the Food industry for 20 years when she created Connecting Food, along with Stefano Volpi. They both witnessed how the lack of transparency in food supply chains was leading to food scandals and eroding consumers trust, so they decided to create a revolutionary solution to tackle this issue.
Connecting Food was founded in 2016. In early 2018, the first Blockchain platform in the world able to digitally track and audit food products in real time was operational. Their first clients were food manufacturers & retailers in France and in Italy. Today, Connecting Food is the European reference in food transparency.
