In her current role at DSM her focus is on building socio-commercial for-profit businesses that address the hidden hunger in India, across a spectrum of F&B categories. Given the ‘localised’ nature of the stakeholders and solutions in this area, she is also responsible for the execution of relevant solutions on nutrition via strategic alliances with scale cross category industry partners towards the common cause.
