Lucy Wright, Co-Founder of Nice Wine and Cuckoo Bircher Muesli

Nice make good quality wine, in cans, that people are proud to be seen with.

Lucy came up with Nice after scrolling through Instagram one day (very millennial of her) and stumbled across a brand of canned wine in the US. Having become immediately obsessed with the concept of wine in a can, Lucy was amazed to see that is didn’t really exist in the UK yet, despite the Brits love of having a drink on the move. She also realised (after further research) that the UK wine market had been crying out for change since the Spice Girls were a thing and decided it was time to bring a bit of disruption to it.

Nice launched in March 2019 and can be found nationwide in Sainsbury's, Whistlestop, festivals, clubs, events, bars & online.

Nice plan to be the #1 canned wine brand in Europe in 5 years and they aren’t going to stop until they get there.

Charlotte Dauzat, Co-Founder of GÂTO & Co

GATO was started just over 2 years ago because Charlotte, and her co-founder Kim, were fed up with healthy or free-from snacks also being free-from flavour or joy. GÂTO comes from gateau, the French for “cake”, but with a twist! Kim’s mum is a dietician, and she taught her you can treat yourself every day without upsetting your stomach. Charlotte grew up on her family’s fruit & veg farm in Provence with a massive sweet tooth. GÂTO is about joining the two! GÂTO make incredibly delicious sweet treats that taste as good as the classics. They're also free from gluten & dairy, naturally lower in sugar, and full of good stuff like fibre & protein.

- Kat Pither, Founder & CEO of widely respected eco-conscious yoga lifestyle brand, Yogi Bare.

Created as a brand for rebels and misfits, Yogi Bare is the physical manifestation of the concept of yoga being for everybody and every body. From humble beginnings, Kat envisioned a way of channeling her creativity to find her own way of managing acute anxiety and PTSD through yoga and wellbeing, eventually going onto become a 500 hour certified yoga teacher. However after all of the training, Kat found that ‘yoga land’ could sometimes be alien and hard to connect with so set out create a brand that could inspire all.

Kat has created an accessible range of innovative, eco-centric products that are designed to galvanize creativity, movement and play. She has organically built a loyal community of Yogi Bare ‘cubs' who support and follow the brand online and offline.
