About the Founders
The prime moving force behind Travel and Food Network, Sanjay Dhar can be best described as a man who is always on the lookout for some new idea or venture that can combine entertainment with knowledge.
A long journey of 25 years followed – which helped him gain experience and cross-industry expertise in entrepreneurship, international business development, business strategy, management and partnership building in the fields of media, education, global events, entertainment (TV and Films), publishing and licensing. The highlight of his journey was the opportunity of working with top global brands like Turner International, CNN, HBO, Cartoon Network and National Geographic.
To put it in business terminology, Sanjay possesses multi-million-dollar program management and sales track record of securing new business and managing partnerships with global private, government and non-profit powerhouses in the Travel and Hospitality Sector, Consumer goods, Banks and Financial services, and other major industry sectors.
During these years, Sanjay had the opportunity to travel to many places in Europe, USA, Canada and Asia – and on each of his travels experiencing the local food and flavours was a must in his itinerary (travel and food are his top 2 passions, he calls himself a global foodie-citizen). With every journey, the strong connection between a country and its food was reinforced in his mind, and the desire to create a content platform that combined the best of food and travel took root and started to grow.
Sanjay has built a team of mentors and columnists that have spent their entire working lives in the world of food and travel, to bring you an experience that will transport you into a world of scenic beauty and gastronomic delights that will leave you asking for more.
