Roslyn is a degree-qualified food regulatory specialist and accredited nutritionist supporting food businesses, entrepreneurs, and importers getting their food labels compliant with Food Standards Code Australian and New Zealand (FSANZ). The only person behind the Tastebuddies journey.
Apart from food and nutrition, Roslyn has a passion for cooking which began when she was 4 years old and encouraged by her grandmother and mother to cook with the fresh produce from their farm garden and fruit orchard. She still grows her own herbs, vegetables and has 3 chickens in her inner-city garden.
With over 300 cookbooks in her collection, she’s a wee bit obsessed with food, recipes, and cooking. Roslyn finds inspiration to try new ingredients, nutritional eating styles, or the latest multicultural dishes from around the globe. Her family is the recipients of many recipe trials, such as paleo, keto, gluten-free, sugar-free, grain-free, vegan, or 9v9, and share in the celebrations and mishaps!
She has worked in the food industry for nearly 30 years and her past roles as a food technologist, product development manager, nutritionist, and regulatory affairs specialist involved developing and supporting many new food products to markets, online and retail supermarkets.
She has worked with FMCG, international fast-food chains, food importers and farmers market food entrepreneurs.
She has assisted in food law and regulatory support to a wide range of client types in virtually every food product category such as bakery, granolas, condiments, confectionery, fresh-cut fruit and vegetables, krauts, salads, snack foods, jams and preserves, sauces, and dressings, meats, and dietary supplements.
Roslyn is also not just skilled in food label regulatory compliance but is also a specialist in Foodworks nutritional database, an industry tool used to develop ingredient lists and nutrition information panels.
Roslyn has written recipes for magazines & cookbooks both in Australia, UK, and The Netherlands and worked as a food editor for Australian cookbooks.
