Sophie Michelin

Founder & CEO

“One of my biggest challenges is to organise my time around work and family duties. I love cooking and as a chef, I enjoy spontaneity in my kitchen. Although making 5 meals per day for my family could hinder that. With our platform, my goal was to put structure into days when I just need healthy and quick meals and still be spontaneous when I create recipes for special occasions.”

“Being a technical guy with a cooking sense makes the perfect combination for molecular cooking... Well, not quite. But good ground for experimenting new ways in cooking and giving technical background in developing a project with great opportunities and intention to help sustainable and healthy food (to do).”

“Although my family is a small one, they like to have fresh food every day and dislike eating the same food for days. After a while, I wasn’t able to change my ”cooking-8-dishes-in-40- minutes” routine because I don’t want to spend the days grocery shopping and cooking: I’d rather spend my free time with my kids. I started to be bored and frustrated with planning and cooking, it became a chore, and was not fun anymore. Being part of the creation of this platform, I gained my creativity back to impress my family with taste.”

“I’m nuts about the technology revolution but I believe tech should be there for the humanity and not the opposite. Meal planning is a crucial thing that complicates everyday life so a pioneer tech based nutrition solution can make life better for millions of people. I believe we at MealPlanner can bring the technology closer to the people, specially to people who really needs it. I think the key to disrupt the MedTech market is to approach from the people side not from the tech side. If we know the problem we want to solve tech should follow us.”

“Ever since I started my sports career years ago I’ve been an advocate of healthy eating and food analysis. I believe that selling a product in 2017 requires a much more customer-centric approach and it is my passion to communicate and understand the needs of the people we work with. I invest my free time coaching American Football and cooking delicious meals for my significant other.”

Chef de Partie/Diet

“I tried many types of diet to lose weight and all of them did not bring results. When I met Sophie, I liked her idea that you don’t need a tough diet, but a good plan. So I finally found the great solution but this one also became my professional motivation as developing such a complex system isn’t an easy job.””
