It’s in March 2016, the day after the sale of his business that Jonathan Defoy – an entrepreneur from Saint-Romuald, on the south shore of Quebec and a graduate of Laval University with twenty years of experience in technology – had the idea to create FoodHero
“I had always told myself that, if I ever had to start something over, I would absolutely want it to have a social impact. It didn’t attract me to do business for business anymore. I needed the motivation to have a social impact and to solve real problems. I have always had an ecologic consciousness. One day, I saw a report on television about the magnitude of food waste. This is where the spark came from. This project idea not only matched my expertise but also matched everything I was looking for at that time.”
