Most Creative People

Amanda Oborne is vice president of food & farms at Ecotrust, a Portland-based environmental think tank. An expert on food systems, Oborne researches and advocates for sustainable and local ingredient sourcing. Her work inspired the Redd on Salmon Street, Ecotrust’s 80,000-square-foot food hub that opened in Portland in summer 2016. The Redd serves as a place for small and midsized producers to store and distribute their products, allowing them to band together and sell to larger buyers; unlike other food hubs, it is a for-profit business and rents out retail, office, and kitchen space. Oborne was previously the director of Ecotrust’s FoodHub initiative, which connects wholesale food producers and buyers online.
