About Taste Symmetry
When I first thought of the name Taste Symmetry in 2009, I chose these two words because they represented the things I sought out most in food, places, and life. They were two attributes I wanted to foster in myself. Taste Symmetry began as a place to share the things I thought were interesting back when I was working as a food safety auditor traveling all over the world.
As the Taste Symmetry brand grew over the years, the consultancy focus became much broader. I brought on additional services that included recipe & menu development, food curation, grant writing and more. While the breadth my services are wide, the North Star of this company has become about cultivating meaningful relationships that supports small businesses.

Hi, I'm Christi.
Over the years, Taste Symmetry has evolved as a resource for food businesses going through the ups and downs in their journey with regulatory compliance.
Understanding how food is processed is so intrinsically interesting to me that food science became a huge part of my career. Being a resource and trusted advisor to the food industry has become my passion. I enjoy the challenges of an evolving industry — the technology regulations and best practices that keep our food safe.
Training clients on food labeling issues and providing them with the tools and knowledge they need to be successful is my super power. I’m always exploring, experimenting, and testing the boundaries of my creative muscle. My next project may be just around the corner. Whatever it is, I’m excited to share it with you.
