Vancouver-based meal-kit company Fresh Prep has added Eric Patel to its board of directors.
Patel's experience spans consumer packaged goods and technology. He recently served as board chairman at Daiya and board director at SmartSweets and Mobify.
In a press release, Fresh Prep said Patel’s leadership would support the 2021 launch of the company's zero-waste kit, which has been in research and development for three years. Fresh Prep currently delivers meal kits in reusable cooler bags and in compostable, recycled, or recyclable packaging.
“As a B-Corporation, it’s our responsibility to design a meal kit that is not only convenient for our customers, but also one that also positively impacts the local community and environment by working with local suppliers and providing a more sustainable meal kit solution,” said Husein Rahemtulla, co-founder and COO of Fresh Prep. “We are proud to be leading the way towards sustainability for the industry with Eric Patel on our team.”
