There is not one single formula that brings about a winning business. However, what we do know is the odds are stacked up against you if you do not have the support network in the initial stages of starting a business.
Spoon Meets is a monthly breakfast talk series with inspirational creatives and people who have a passion about what they do.

So many people I know start the week with the best of intentions; tupperwares brimming with kale and nutribullets clutched to replace that hastily grabbed croissant. Then half way through the week, whether it’s a couple of meals out with friends, the office biscuit tin lurking temptingly or hectic schedules they find themselves stressed and not eating or feeling their best.
The Spoon brand started out at a small food fair in SW London. We had no background in food or business and no idea of the hurdles that were lying ahead of us. But with our notices handed in at work, we naively set out on our mission regardless!

You’re thinking about quitting your job and your comfortable salary to start something that you genuinely care about. You keep hearing the phrases: ‘find your passion” or “do what you love - the number one rule in business”. But what if you don’t have a passion? What if you’re still searching for that big idea?
Spoon is now something that Annie and I spend most of our time planning for, working on and strategising about. It is a legitimate business with lots of customers and suppliers as well as partners and investors. It was not always that way though.
Last month, Spoon Cereals teamed up with Whole Foods UK for the first in our series of ‘Spoon Meets’ live events. Whole Foods provided the perfect setting for our first panel of creatives in the flagship store on Kensington High Street.
At Spoon Cereals, we have been eating an increasingly vegetarian and plant-based diet over the last few years. We’ve noticed that it’s not just a change that we’ve made to our eating habits, but a trend that is growing everywhere.
It will come as no surprise to hear that at Spoon we love those morning rituals. Before anything else, there’s only one thing on our mind when we wake up. Whether it’s bircher, porridge, muesli, granola - you name it, we’ll eat it.
