Can you Take 5 for a new approach to the business of food?

In our region, food is not just fuel. It’s the connection between rural and urban. It’s the complement and fusion of cultures. And it’s the forefront of a new way of doing business. Andina is not only an award-winning Peruvian restaurant in the Pearl, but as Peter Platt, Founder and Family Co-Owner says, they are “a social and cultural institution and incubator” for its patrons and employees. I recently asked Peter to Take 5 questions about their approach to creating a more socially and environmentally friendly food chain. Below, watch Peter “Take 5.”

Do you know of a business or organization who should “Take 5?” Tell us at
