Sovanny Hartnett

Senior Regulatory Associate

Home base: Syracuse, New York, United States

Drawing from her training as a registered dietitian and her experience at a food retailer and an ingredient company, Sovanny plays a key role in developing and executing regulatory compliance programs for Foodwit clients. Sovanny is currently focused on advising brands on nutrition strategy, helping them find purpose and permissibility in a global operating environment that is so heavily focused on health and wellness. 

After hours, Sovanny loves experimenting with new recipes, usually building her repertoire around a specific ingredient or cooking technique. If the mood strikes for an activity unrelated to food, you can find her at an antique store, vintage shop, or working on a DIY project.
