Nick and team have been creating stylish, scrumptious and sustainable food since 1993.Across all three parts of the business, Eden’s commitment to sustainability and the environment goes beyond the lip-service many companies pay to green issues. Indeed, they won the ‘Independent Sustainable Caterer of the Year’ award, at the Food Legacy Awards ceremony. When we meet Mead he is open about his job, company and to answering the listeners letters. Mead came to catering after years as a youth football coach (he worked for Spurs, despite being an Arsenal fan, he tells me regretfully). There are now 27 full-time employees, as well as hundreds of temporary staff hired through Off to Work and other agencies. The Waterloo premises are stretched to capacity: there’s an industrial kitchen on site, with all the extras that requires; as well as an office space and an upstairs staff room, complete with pool table.Eden’s buyers also try to shop locally, using hens from Gloucester and beef from Essex, and they stick to a seasonal list of ingredients across the company. Find out about his mind set, habits, mantras and more here.

Season 3 – Episode 9: If Only This Shopping List Was Magic

willbroome

“If only this shopping list was a magic list that told me everything in order.” Entrepreneur Will Broome believes he has the perfect riposte to this dilemma with his new app Ubamarket. Dubbed ‘the smart shopping list’, the app, which has been four years’ in the making, claims to solve some of the biggest issues consumers complain about when trudging through the supermarket for groceries, and provides a number of enticing commercial benefits to retailers too. Speaking to Jason on the cusp of Ubamarket’s launch, Will described how the inspiration came like a bolt of lighting in the middle of a humdrum visit to his local supermarket. “About five years ago I get back from work and my wife would text me a shopping list,” he explained. “I’d go into the store and I’d have this long shopping list on my phone and I’d be knackered anyway. I’d go in like a typical bloke, I was going from aisle 6 to aisle 9 to aisle 4 back to aisle 6 again.” Hear more only on the GuestList podcast!
