#045 – Hospitality Meets Ben O’Brien – The Fresh Food Founder

There’s a movement happening out there, can you feel it? We’re starting to pay more attention to where our food comes from and what techniques are used in their production. Today’s guest, Ben O’Brien, was way ahead of the curve, founding Sourced Market (https://sourcedmarket.com/) in 2007, long before provenance was in the public eye. Ben now takes on a Chairman role with the company as they move forward and Ben looks to use his knowledge to help other start ups make a positive stride forward.

In today’s chat, we get through a lot including Puglia, St Pancras, Motorway services, Switzerland, food & music, setting up business, taking on corporate, luck & timing, Kings Cross regeneration, recession opportunities, crowd funding, food in travel sites, Risk, ethical and regenerative farming and of course Ben’s own unique story as to how ended up doing all this.

Ben shares his story so openly, it’s great insight into how to launch your own business.
