Making Green Waves: Nikoletta Koutalianos aims to lead the way to a sustainable future


26-year-old Greek businesswoman Nicoletta Koutalianos’ business ‘Rooted’ was one of 3 finalists selected for the Finder Green Awards 2021, held online on Wednesday.

Koutalianos was shortlisted for the Rising Star of the Year category for her work in building her business Rooted, a 100% plant-based and plastic-free meal delivery service.

“Rooted was founded to answer a gaping hole in the meal delivery space. There is a rising number of the Australian population turning to veganism and plant-based foods every year, thanks to more education on sustainability and environmental impacts than ever before. People are increasingly conscious of their choices and how it reflects on their health, and the health of the planet.

“At Rooted, we’ve created an answer to that. A solution for modern times, we make convenience guilt-free. We use absolutely zero plastic, 100% home compostable packaging, and our food is entirely plant-based and gluten-free,” Koutalianos said.

“The core of our message is that you don’t have to compromise – you can eat delicious food, and it can be healthy, convenient, and good for the environment too,” she said.

Nikoletta Koutalianos, is also a finalist for the Small Business Champion Awards 2021, with results to be announced on the 31st July at Sydney’s The Star.
