Aman Adatia first contributed to Calgary’s curbside dining scene when he elevated the food truck concept from ‘street meat’ to a highly sought after, award winning, restaurant on wheels - Eat Naaco (2012-2017). It was a unique entrepreneurial model that allowed Aman to serve kick-ass food while also contributing to stronger communities, and the local food landscape.
Aman deeply believes that social enterprise is the future of food. He insists that the product he offers be high-quality and compelling, and that social, environmental, and economic metrics are not only equally weighted, but embedded into the organizational DNA.
Aman is a valued board and committee member for various governmental and nonprofit organizations and initiatives, a coach to aspiring food entrepreneurs, and a highly engaged citizen.
Chef, entrepreneur, and activist - Aman is now embarking on a new project, Fare Community: a transformative hospitality group that takes a multi-faceted approach to creating a food economy that can tackle important environmental (food surplus) and societal (barrier employment, food security) issues.
The future of our food system is in our hands. We are all explorers of an edible planet and we must consume it in a responsible way. Let us use food to increase our understanding of poverty and waste.
“It take a lot of nerve to destroy our wondrous Earth.”- Bowerbirds
