Claire Duncumb | Sumfood


The most recent addition to the Sumfood team is Claire, our community and campaigns extraordinaire. While studying at the University of Auckland Claire developed a real passion for food, especially working towards a future where all people have access to healthy and safe food, an audacious but essential calling. Her Masters of Nutritional Science at Massey University epitomised this, as she researched the habits and impacts of breakfasts of New Zealand children. Since then her career has spanned sectors of nutrition, health promotion and medical insurance.


Food is entrenched in Claire's day to day life. In addition to her work, she can often be found not far from Takapuna enjoying Auckland's sensational gastronomy. A lover of cooking, reading and spending time with family amongst New Zealand's amazing places, Claire is a foodie on a mission to build a better food future.
