Episode 41: Jason Gibb, Founder @ Bread & Jam
Planet Driven Brands Podcast Jason Gibb. Jason has a most fascinating story to tell. His journey from scientist, to TV producer (Scrapheap Challenge), through Olive Oil producer and finally to founder of 'Bread & Jam' is told through the lens of an underlying mission, in his life, to help others. Bread & Jam is the epitome of what Jason is all about and it was the Olive Oil experience that helped create it. Concerned by the lack of help for food industry start-ups he set about creating a platform of his own. And, after 'meeting his tribe' at a number of UK trade shows, B&J was born...! B & J has grown into one of the 'must attend' festivals in the food calendar. Furthermore, he has created the Food Hub Directory as an additional resource for budding brands. We hear how Jason has done it and what his mission is for the future. Jason is driven by how he and his businesses interact with, and impact, the planet. As he says: "Outside of Bread & Jam my ambition is to do something with my life where I come home at the end of the day and I kinda feel like I've done something positive!"
