Adam Thompson is the former Managing Director (aka Chief Rebel) of plant-based brand, Rebel Kitchen. With a mission to challenge the status quo, the line of coconut-based products are sold in 22 countries globally, has B Corp status, and most recently (September 2019) went carbon neutral. 

With annual sales exceeding £6million, Rebel Kitchen does things differently. From company culture, to their MYLK with a ‘Y’, the business has been built to ask questions, challenge the norm and ultimately be a force for good that can stand the test of time.

In this episode, Adam chats about the rise of the conscious consumer, waking people up to what they are being told and sold, as well as sharing the highs and lows of launching an F&B brand into new markets.
