Ronni Kahn AO
Winner of Judges' Choice Innovator Award
Chief executive officer of OzHarvest
Driven by a determination to find purpose in her life, the simple act of rescuing good food and delivering it to people in need quickly caught on, and in 2004 OzHarvest was born. Ronni is renowned for her boundless energy, infectious enthusiasm and not taking no for an answer!
Her ability to inspire and motivate everyone she meets has seen OzHarvest grow from humble beginnings to become Australia’s leading food rescue organisation. Her journey in the fight against food waste became the feature of an independent film Food Fighter and in 2019 she was appointed Officer of the Order of Australia.
