Noodling Solutions for Food Insecurity

Guest: Dr. Reza Soltanzadeh, CEO and Co-Founder, Borealis Foods

Season 10 Episode 11

Solving a major crisis sometimes requires reframing it. For Reza Soltanzadeh, working with Doctors Without Borders exposed him to global hunger—but he saw one solution by reframing the problem as global malnutrition.


That set him on a path of high innovation, resulting in a ramen noodle that can, quite literally, nourish the world.


Reza shares how his company, Borealis Foods, has learned to innovate so supremely well.

Here’s what Reza and host Maureen Metcalf cover:

  1. Why the American manufacturing process is ideally suited to supplying products that answer global humanitarian needs;
  2. The elements of Borealis’ company culture that make high innovation possible; and
  3. The innovative strategies for creating affordable products that meet your customers’ needs.
