Alberto Lo Bue
Managing Director, OLIO
Alberto is the Managing Director of the food waste hero programme at OLIO, a free app tackling the problem of food waste by connecting neighbours with each other, and volunteers with local businesses, so that surplus food can be given away, not thrown away.
OLIO has grown to five million users in just over five years, and its impact has been widely recognised, most notably by the United Nations which highlighted OLIO as a “beacon” for the world, and by Vivatech who awarded OLIO “Next European Unicorn”.
Prior to OLIO, Alberto led Deliveroo for Work, the B2B arm of Deliveroo, and founded Papem, an online marketplace to find products in stock in local stores.
He also spent time at Foodpanda in its early days and Rocket Internet throughout its IPO.
He is from Sicily and loves local, seasonal food! He is on the advisory board of Slow Food in the UK.
