Anna spent the last 15 years between Europe, China, Singapore and the USA in the automotive and luxury industries. This international experience has given me a broad vision of mobility, today and in the future. Every day, I’m busy thinking about mobility, how it fits in with and evolves with urbanization and more importantly how it impacts the way we live. Known for pushing the limits, identifying new opportunities and analyzing trends, with a proven track record in Marketing and Management across different industries, I’m leaning on my experience to drive the MILOO mission and create meaningful mobility solutions that deliver extra in every way for our customers.

Mine is a globally recognised expert in protein. She is an industrial engineer with an MBA and has led teams at Unilever, DuPont and was the Head of Protein R&D at Nestlé. In 2014, Mine was invited to the White House to discuss the future of sustainable protein, which triggered her to leave Nestlé to concentrate specifically on the development of micro-algae, as she believes this will help solve the increasingly worrisome protein issue. Having spent 20 years reviewing all the sources of protein, from animal and plant, she has come to the conclusion that golden chlorella is the protein and superfood ingredient consumers have been waiting for.
