Rosalyn specializes in insights-based culinary innovation that spans across away-from-home and retail channels. Plant-based & flexitarian foods and beverage mixology have been her current focus in the kitchen, working with both Fortune 500 CPGs and top 200 foodservice operators to bring this sprouting trend to shelves and menus across the nation.
