Snack Safely
Dave Bloom is CEO of SnackSafely.com, an advocacy he co-founded with his wife Debra in 2011.  The firm’s primary publication, the Safe Snack Guide, is a resource used by thousands of schools and tens of thousands of parents nationwide help to keep allergens out of the classroom and the home. SnackSafely.com has developed a proprietary platform to enable food manufacturers to disclose how they process 11 allergens during the manufacture of their products. By leveraging this platform and partnerships with participating manufacturers, SnackSafely.com is transforming the food industry by providing the food allergy community with much more complete, reliable and timely information than is available on the label under FALCPA guidelines. Prior to founding SnackSafely.com, Dave’s focus was information technology for the Financial Services industry, most recently as Chief Technology Officer for MarketPrizm, a pan-European low-latency trading network based in London. Dave was also a founding partner and CTO of Occam & Kiss, LLC, a New York based IT consultancy, and has served in past IT management roles for Salomon Brothers, UBS, Citigroup and Concentra. In a past lifetime, Dave started his career as an electrical engineer for a video game firm and taught programming and computer literacy as an adjunct at Rutgers University.
