I created Line2Lab to coach and mentor food industry people into the product development sector with the intent of bridging any gaps with my experiences to find the right path for everyone. “Line” pays homage to a standard kitchen line in a restaurant and “Lab” represents the product development world. The number “2” represents working one on one with me (1+1=2). Mush them all together and voila, Line2Lab was born.

The world is constantly evolving, why shouldn't you?

There's a saying that too may cooks spoil the broth. Well that's not the case with Product Development. It takes teams of Chefs, Food scientists, Food Technologists, Flavorologists, Marketing Specialists, Packaging Engineers  and many more to collaborate to launch successful food and beverage products. Line2Lab is dedicated to bringing those opportunities to life to those who are ready to take the next step and uncover the other side of the Food Industry that feeds the world, daily. 

Let's get  you on your path to a food science career or culinary product development opportunities you never thought were available to you. The Food & Beverage Industry  is growing faster than ever before and  now is your time to formulate your future and become what you never thought was possible.
