Innovation and Sustainability

Future-Fit Food Brands

Paloma Lopez has transitioned from her recent role as Global Sustainability Director for the Kellogg Company, based in Michigan to begin work on a new initiative supporting sustainability, well-being and humanity at the center of a fast-changing food system.  As the food sector enters a decade of unprecedented transformation due to the rapid adoption of artificial intelligence and increased land, ocean and climate pressures across our planet, Paloma plans to use her end-to-end experience from working with farmers to create new foods to building brands in order to identify and implement solutions that help accelerate the shift towards a sustainable, healthy and humanizing food system in 2020 and beyond.

During Paloma’s tenure with Kellogg in Europe and the Americas, she has held roles in Sustainability but also in Innovation, New Business Development, and Brand Strategy. As Global Sustainability Director, Paloma helped embed Sustainability into the fabric of Kellogg’s growth strategies, including brand and customer plans, as well as contributing to a number of employee and external stakeholder initiatives. Among her most recent projects, Paloma has helped lead the global rollout of the Kellogg’s Origins(™) Sustainable Agriculture Program, engaging employees and external stakeholders. Paloma has also played an instrumental role enabling brand campaigns such as MorningStar Farms ‘Just What the World Ordered’ and corporate initiatives such as Kellogg’s new digital transparency platform ‘Open for Breakfast’.

In her previous role driving Sustainability Strategy for Europe, Paloma also helped lead the partnership with Chime for Change, a global campaign to raise funds and awareness for girls and women to promote Education, Health and Justice around the world, which to date has engaged over 1 million women in the Chime for Change movement and directly benefited 25,000 women around the world.
