Join us for a conversation with Yao Zhao, founder of 50Hertz Sichuan Pepper. Born and raised in Chongqing, China, he is an economist and clean energy expert, and has worked in China, India, the Middle East, and currently in Washington DC. Yao started the company based on the belief that Sichuan pepper and its tingly numbing sensation will strike a chord with foodies everywhere. When Yao is not making Sichuan pepper oil, you'll find him trekking through the Pantanal in Brazil or along back roads in India, and pursuing his main hobby, scuba diving! Zanzibar, Okinawa, Strait of Hormuz, the Maldives, and Raja Ampat are many of his favorite spots.
