Cultivating diversity and inclusion: Company case study interview with Anja Leissner [On-demand webinar]

Join us for this interview with Anja Leissner, Founder and Head of R&D at Stockeld Dreamery, as we learn more about her approach to mentorship and how they manage to nurture their open and inclusive company culture.

Anja, together with Sorosh Tavakoli, founded Stockeld Dreamery in early 2019 (formerly Noquo Foods) to reinvent food, starting with plant-based cheese. Their company is now 26 people strong, and launched its first product, Chunk, in May 2021 with more products coming.

She has diverse expertise, thanks to her specialty in dairy technology and processing, plant oil and flavouring solutions (Skånemejerier, AAK, BBA), as well as her engagement at Lund University (LTH).
