Core Team of LeanSpoon
Gopi always insists that there is a chance to imagine, try and create something new. To challenge every presupposition and to believe that there is no predefined way to do anything is his method to make LeanSpoon flow.
Making full use of his self-proclaimed 'repository of pointless knowledge', Gopi's ideas are easy to understand because of the clarity and passion with which he shares them.
As a well-travelled Global citizen with an Indian soul, Gopi is determined to use all his experience in business processes, logistics and exposure to multiple cultures to impact access to nutrition advice and food in India.
Saneesha cares about every detail of everything that happens at LeanSpoon, with the kind of attention that a painting requires. Not surprising because she is an accomplished painter.

She brings a unique approach to food – which she insists needs to be fresh, interesting and free of artificial chemicals.

Priyanka is the first in and last out at our office. Some say she has never seen the outside of our office. A B.Tech in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, she worked as an automation engineer soon to realize her passion in all things ‘Business and Entrepreneurship’ when she was discovered by LeanSpoon. “LeanSpoon gave me the amazing opportunity to experience a different world and improve my skills in this field with an exciting project.”
Satish shows how wonderful and diverse a plate of Indian food can be. Using his degree in culinary arts and experience in 5-star hotels he confidently prepares anything, even when he has just a name of a dish to go on. “Leanspoon is the perfect option, I’ve been always interested in combining healthy and tasty in food, and through this great concept we will give a better health to our customers.”
After 8 years of experience in different types of cuisines such as five star hotels, Australian cruises and well recognized airlines, Sandeep Reddy came to lead the exciting laboratory of LeanSpoon. ‘LeanSpoon offered me to join a project based on a totally new concept which immediately caught my attention, this mix of culinary blend with nutritional sciences was a field that I never explored before but my multiple years of experience have properly prepared me for this position. I am ready to guide the wonderful team that LeanSpoon has built on its kitchen and get the best out of each one of us’ With his young face it would be almost impossible to recognize Sandeep within the rest of the team as the head of our kitchen. Experience and talent goes beyond and he is the clear example.
