Klara Kalocsay

Head of Research Strategy

Klara’s leads Food Frontier’s research capabilities, working across primary data collection as well as synthesising the literature surrounding alternative proteins – including the food system, the environment and health – and making it accessible for Food Frontier’s stakeholders. As both a nutritionist and science communicator, Klara brings varied expertise to her work on the research, data analytics and writing that underpins Food Frontier’s analyses, publications, resources and government submissions. As the resident news buff, Klara is also across the latest developments and research in the ecosystem, keeping Food Frontier’s stakeholders up to date and informed in Food Frontier’s monthly industry newsletter. She began her career in Sydney at global agencies Ogilvy Public Relations and Sling & Stone, supporting communications and government relations for major technology firms and start-up clients like Twitter and Xero. A growing interest in nutrition, food systems and public health inspired a return to university, where her love of research and data flourished. Klara simultaneously worked in-house at Uber Australia, supporting internal communications, regulatory systems change and serving as a member of the Green Team. Prior to joining Food Frontier, Klara worked in health promotion and food policy in a local government setting. Her expertise in the field of alternative proteins has been recognised with an Adjunct Fellowship at Macquarie University. Klara is also member of the Australian Health Promotion Association and the Public Health Association of Australia. Klara is motivated by the pressing need to facilitate our food system’s transition toward a more sustainable and healthier future.
