Making networking easier for small brands in food & drink

We're not just a Facebook group...

We are an exclusive community comprising of individuals in what we consider to be the most exciting early-stage food & drink grocery brands in the UK.

And we're not just for founders - we're for all the brains working inside these businesses, because we know that in our world, every cog needs to turn, or the machine would fall apart.
