Company Directory / Jam In The Middle Ltd

Business Description

"Jam in the Middle Ltd t/a Bread & Butter. Bread & Butter came about through the shared vision of two food founders, passionate about shaking up the way the food and drink industry works. Every year, 16,000 food and drink brands emerge into the UK market and yet, 90% of them don't make it past their first year of trading. Bread & Butter is a celebration of the food and drink industry's entrepreneurial spirit. There are many reasons for a food business to cease trading but the absence of opportunity, information and industry support should no longer one of them

JASON GIBB. After a decade of being a TV producer, I bought an abandoned olive grove in Italy and started a business selling olive oil. With no background in food, no knowledge of olive oil and no idea how to speak Italian, it was a pretty sharp learning curve but soon our oil was selling in shops like Selfridges, Harrods, John Lewis and Waitrose.

When I started out, there wasn't much support for food businesses like mine. I'd meet up with other food founders and we'd crack jokes about equity finance, NPD mistakes and our favourite buyers. These moments were few and far between so I started an online forum for food and drink entrepreneurs called The FoodHub to share the tales of triumph and disaster and all those handy tips we've learnt along the way. The incredible response inspired me to start the UK's first food founders' festival. 020 3239 9032

TARA MEI. I started Kitchen Table Projects in 2015 by combining my two most favourite things: food and making things happen. After running my own food business after graduating, I knew how challenging being a food entrepreneur can be. There had to be a better way to go about it!

Over the last year, I've worked with over 500 food brands, supporting them through business bootcamps, speed mentoring sessions, networking nights and retail pop-ups. Starting a food business is something really special and not all startups are the same. I wanted to deliver support that really understood what being a food entrepreneur is all about. I think the world is a better place when people are doing what they love. For me, Bread & Butter is about food entrepreneurs getting together to do just that. 020 3239 9032"
