In the run up to the UK Food & Drink Shows 2024, we’ve been sitting down with some of our key speakers attending this year! Join us as we explore the stories behind the speakers, discovering the motivations that fuel their work, the challenges they've overcome, and the lessons they've learned along the way.

First up is Renée Elliott, Founder / Owner at Planet Organic!

How do you describe your job to your friends?
