Sarb (BBA, CPA_CMA) is recognized as a leader in the local food movement, bringing innovative ideas with tangible results to entrepreneurs and communities in the Agfood sector. Sarb’s love of engaging with people and local food led him to start Soho Road Naan Kebab Food truck celebrating his UK background and Indian roots. Sarb’s challenge finding a cost effective and fun-to-work-in prep kitchen led him to create Commissary Connect – the kitchen HE wanted for his food business.
Combining his direct knowledge of food processing and entrepreneurship with expertise in accounting and strategic direction, Sarb is much sought after as an expert in the food industry throughout British Columbia. He is involved in working groups shaping Western Canada’s future in food and agriculture – working directly with UBC, BC Ministry of Agriculture, BCIC, IAF, City of Vancouver Economic Commission and several others.
Sarb can often be found in the kitchen sharing war stories and hard earned advice with the aim to make our members’ journey to success a little bit easier.
Ronica and Sarb met at over a Naan Kebab at Sarb’s food truck – and she’s been advising him and supporting Commissary Connect’s entrepreneurs ever since. She has an eye for high quality items, and is often found in the kitchens giving opinions and supporting members. Ronica leads the administrative team – responding to all applications and communications - and developing new ways to showcase our members.
