CORE Foods – Building a Social Enterprise

January 27, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Alameda County Small Business Development Center Presents: Small Business Mentorship Series

CORE Foods – Building a Social Enterprise

Kai Itameri is a pioneer of new business models in the food industry.  He most recently headed the effort to open CORE Kitchen, an all produce restaurant launched late 2015 in the Oakland City Center.  He also led efforts to expand the packaged organic food products of CORE Foods to over 300 stores nationwide. Previously, he led the expansion efforts of “grow at home” products company Back to the Roots to nationwide distribution. Come hear Kai talk about his journey to grow this revolutionary company.

CORE Foods is a certified B Corporation, reinvesting all proceeds back into its mission to bring the healthiest foods to consumers and to empower the community.

Following Kai’s talk, we will have a speed-pitch opportunity and networking hour – every attendee will have the opportunity to take the microphone for a 30-second pitch or service description.

Catering will be provided by Core Kitchen, offering attendees an opportunity to sample company products.
