    Ofek Ron, Plantish: Saving Our Oceans With Plant-based Fish

    Ofek Ron, Plantish: Saving Our Oceans With Plant-based Fish

    Ofek Ron is the founder of Plantish, an Israeli start-up creating plant-based whole fish fillets in a bid to tackle the over-fishing of our oceans. Ofek is a super passionate and charismatic person, who holds community and mission-driven work close to him. He and Erik discuss the vital importance of building a great team, and how Ofek is collaborating with pioneering scientists to design a special 3D printing machine to create their product. They also cover the importance of price point in the plant-based market, why sharing your company 'secrets' can be better in the long run, and why it's taken so long for the plant-based fish market to catch up with other vegan products.

    Tim Samuels, Karmacist: Harnessing Nutrigenomics

    Tim Samuels, Karmacist: Harnessing Nutrigenomics

    Tim Samuels has spent most of his career producing documentaries for the BBC and National Geographic, including a podcast critiquing the wellness industry. He is now founder and CEO of Karmacist where, working alongside Harvard and Stanford scientists, he combines the power of nature with cutting edge science to produce botanical supplements. In today's episode, we hear Tim speak with candour about the challenges of founding a start up after years as a journalist, his cynicism about the mainstream supplement industry, and how he harnessed his skills as a story-teller to secure investment. We also delve into the scientific basis of Karmacist: nutrigenomics, which is how certain nutrients can impact particular genes that are involved in regulating certain bodily functions. If you ever wondered how saffron could help fight depression, then this is the episode for you!

Lissareis ,

Inspiring!

This is my favourite podcast. I love entrepreneurial stories, specially of people moving the world forwards. I’m working on starting my own vegan business and I find the interviews useful and inspiring. A must for food entrepreneurs!

Nivekrag ,

What a listen!

This is by far one of the best podcasts I have ever listened to. I just listened to the latest BOSH episode, and I highly encourage everybody to listen and pay attention. I am not an entrepreneur nor I intend to be, but I am very passionate about veganism, sustainability and giving a platform to people who are willing to move the world forward and change the game. And that’s exactly what these folks are doing. Ian and Henry give away so many useful tips about practical living, business and ultimately mental and physical health. Thank you so much Vevolution! Keep it up.

Adam FurzAid ,

They’re just great Start Up Plant Based and Animal Welfare business support.
