Good Food Media Network Bringing Food Transparency to the Restaurant Industry with Sara Brito
An entrepreneur of ideas, strategic thinker and doer, and food lover with a zest for life, Sara Brito is Co-Founder of the Good Food Media Network, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that produces and publishes the Good Food 100 Restaurants™.
Sara is a 20-year food (Chefs Collaborative, The Kitchen, Snooze), advertising/digital media/technology (Crispin, Porter + Bogusky, Digitas), and Fortune 100 (American Express, The New York Times, AOL) industry veteran with a successful track record leading people and change to make big ideas happen. While serving on the Board of Slow Food NYC, she co-created and launched the Slow Food ‘Snail of Approval’ program, a designation given to restaurants, bars, food and beverage artisans that contribute to the quality, authenticity and sustainability of the food supply of the City of New York. Under Sara's leadership, Chefs Collaborative was nominated for the 2016 Taste Talks inaugural "Outstanding Nonprofit" award, and three of her past clients, The Kitchen, Big Green, Domino's, and Vail Resorts (EpicMix), were named to Fast Company's 2016 and 2018 World's Most Innovative Companies list. Her work has been featured on the cover of The New York Times Magazine ("Broccoli’s Extreme Makeover").
In 2015, she was invited by the U.S. Department of State and the James Beard Foundation to speak at the American Chef Rally at ExpoMilano in Milan, Italy, and in 2018 she was invited by HRH The Prince of Wales to attend a Crop Trust reception at Clarence House in London, England recognizing leaders from around the world for their dedication to sustainability and biodiversity.
Sara's roots in food began growing up in a small farming community in Western New York known as 'Home of the Peach Festival.' She currently lives in Boulder, CO and Brooklyn, NY.
