Founder Q&A: Ramona's & Humanitea

About the event

For this Q&A, we will be learning from Ramona Hazan, founder of RAMONA's, and Tina Chen, founder of Humanitea:

RAMONA's was inspired by Ramona's memories of the flavours and textures of the Levantine. Starting from her home kitchen and a little blender, she experiemented with family recipes for houmous, falafel and dips. Having noticed an underrepresentation of Turkish & Egyptian cuisine in the supermarket, Ramona set out to fill this gap with her range of delicious, plant-based, boldly-branded products. Her business is now worth £5 million.

Humanitea is the UK’s 1st chilled ready-to-drink plant-based tea lattes. Chief Tea Officer Tina was inspired by the Taiwanese bubble tea concept and British tea drinking culture to develop a delicious, well-balanced tea latte, in Matcha and Earl Grey flavours. Tina's low-sugar, ethically sourced drinks provide a natural energy and antioxidant boost, without the caffiene crash, and can be purchased at the Co-op, Ocado and Amazon.
