On May 7 in Shanghai, B Corp China, Bits x Bites, and Green Initiatives will join hands to organize a community event “Fireside Chat with Sir Kensington’s Co-Founder: Building a Condiment Company with Purpose, Character, and Charm”.
From two friends concocting sauce recipes with all natural ingredients in a tiny college apartment 11 years ago to becoming one of the fastest growing boutique condiment brands acquired by Unilever, Sir Kensington’s is a great showcase for how food businesses can combine purpose and profit to achieve commercial success.
We will hear directly from Scott Norton, co-founder of Sir Kensington’s. Scott has been named one of Fast Company's “Most Creative People in Business” and one of Forbes' “30 Under 30."
“I didn’t really see ketchup as a career. I just thought it was an interesting problem to solve.” (Scott)
