Karen Karp



Karen Karp, a respected entrepreneur, convener, and food business consultant, founded Karen Karp & Partners (formerly Karp Resources) in 1990. As President of the company, she brings over 35 years of specialized experience developing a range of bespoke strategies that explore the interconnections between agriculture, food, and health; and how to marry common interests of the for-profit, nonprofit, and government sectors. Karen’s real success is measured by her ability to change the way a wide range of people – corporate executives, school officials, distributors, educators, and farmers – think about how food can be produced, processed, and distributed, and how she encourages them to overcome challenges and pursue innovation for proven business results.
