Felipe is the co-founder and CEO of DuLocal. He created the Brazilian meal delivery business in 2018. He is passionate about food and loves cooking for his friends and family. Felipe was trained as an environmental engineer and holds a master in environment economics. His engineering background urges him to find solutions to problems, and he is convinced that the food system is both the problem and the solution. Having grown organic vegetables himself with his family and after a short training in a culinary school in the UK, Felipe returned to Brazil to put into action his idea of how to have a positive impact on his community.
In this interview he tells us more about his business, what drives him to develop it further and how it supports a more sustainable food system for everyone.
Thank you and welcome Felipe to Chefs for Impact!
