Proudest moment: In 2011, whilst juggling day jobs and little people, my husband and I borrowed an ice-cream maker, got to grips with dry ice and launched a coconut milk, dairy free food brand from our kitchen. The brand later attracted the attention of the Gu founders who took a majority stake. In 2019 The Coconut Collaborative turned over £25 million with listings in every major UK retailer, and is now sold in over ten countries.
