From Filters to Feedlots: Instagram influencers get an inside view of the sector’s role in reducing food waste

Before the farm tour had even begun, feedlot and processing plant owner Calvin Vaags of Dugald Manitoba, and influencer Nita Sharda had a full circle life moment. The two realized one of Calvin’s first and longest standing clients was Nita’s Indian immigrant father who owns a small retail store in Winnipeg that sells True North processed beef. 

As a registered dietician, Nita knows what foods make up a healthy diet, but she also prides herself in learning and sharing as much as she can about the production side of food with her clients and online followers.
