Ed Dowding

Ed Dowding is a passionate and innovative man. He founded FoodTrade and spends most of his time developing sustainable trade networks. Ed is ‘relentlessly optimistic’ and a great motivator with an inspirational story.
Ed Dowding strives to use food as a tool for making a better world, and to this end he offers talks on innovation, sustainability, hope, policy, organisational structures, and 21st century business patterns. He is the founder of FoodTrade, the dating site for food businesses.

Ed has spent a great deal of his career creating social collaboration systems to aid disaster recovery and prevention. His current focus is food as it is not only the most vitally important challenge of our times, but also one of the quickest and easiest to solve.

He is part of the London Food Board. He is also an expert adviser to EU SmartAgrimatics programme, and works with a number of NGOs to encourage sustainable food policies. He holds two world records: one is for 'most people making chutney from food surplus', the other is secret until you buy him a drink.
