Guy Hacking - Co-Founder of TRIBE

Guy Hacking and his co-founders Tom Stanclifee and Rob Martineau started TRIBE after a 1,000 mile run they completed from Ukraine to Croatia to fight human trafficking. Emboldened by the power of community and frustrated by the refined, high sugar sports nutrition on offer they started on the journey to build TRIBE, a modern sports nutrition brand that delivers personalized sports nutrition designed for the everyday athlete. 

 After very fast revenue and subscriber growth through their online platform and a successful crowdfunding round, they are now about to bring TRIBE to the mass market through a retail offering. Launching in Planet Organic this month they are on a mission to meet the nation's performance nutrition needs with their wide ranging high-quality natural performance products.
