— The Vision —

To connect more fully with the food we eat

Eatwell is more than a company. We're a community of people who live well, love delicious food, and do good things where we can. We use on- and off-line tools to tell stories and create experiences that support our vision.

Who danielle

Danielle Cohen Henriquez

It was a custard tart and a passion for Food for Good that made Danielle quit her office job and move to Lisbon. Her background in philosophy and impact investing shaped her vision for the business and its impact. She leads strategy, business development and built Eatwell's impact framework. In her afternoons and evenings you will find her on Eatwell's tasting tours or practising her salsa moves.

Who miguel

Miguel de Bragança

Miguel moved to Lisbon to learn how to code web apps and to build something good for the planet. When Danielle pitched him on a tool to help connect people to delicious, ethical restaurants, he knew this was the project he’d been looking for. Expanding on his background in marketing and startups, Miguel designed and coded the app with help from his amazing project team at the Le Wagon Lisbon. He co-conceptualized the Eatwell vision and contributed script-writing, marketing, and tour-guiding for Eatwell’s food tours.
