Helen Darling | Sumfood

Dr. Helen Darling – who was the 2013 Otago Daily Times Business Person of the Year, a finalist in the 2014 Women of Influence Awards and in 2017 received a Distinguished Alumna Award from Otago Polytechnic – began her career as a nurse. She’s one of those rare people who wants to make the world a better place and then acts on it. Like filmmaker James Cameron, who had to wait for technology to catch up with his cinematic vision for 2009’s Avatar, Helen’s carried the strategy for Sumfood for over six years and finally has the tools to make it happen.
