WeWork No.1 Spinningfields
We are delighted to host a TiE Talk Event on 4th July at 5:30 pm at WeWork Spinningfileds with Charbrew and Hive Urban Farms. Come and meet some of the most exciting food and drink entrepreneurs:
Adam Soliman is a founder of Charbrew which sells teas blended with fruit pieces or whole leaves and includes varieties such as Black tea with Sunflower Blossoms, Whole Leaf English Breakfast and Chrabrew Original blends targeted at younger drinkers. Adam came up with the idea for Charbrew when he was frustrated at the variety of teas on offer and opened the tea importer and blender. Now the business, which supplies 20 major retailers including Sainsburyâ€™s, Booths and TK Maxx is branching out abroad by selling to TKâ€™s American sister, TJ Maxx and the French chain Casino.
Building a fledgeling tea business from his parentsâ€™ house was a far cry from 21-year-old Adam Solimanâ€™s dream of the City trading floor. But, just two years after graduating in the thick of the worst recession in a generation, the young entrepreneur now heads one of the UKâ€™s fastest-growing speciality tea brands.
Dien Curtis and Gareth Williams are the co-founders of an exciting urban agriculture startup - Hive Urban Farms, which grow gourmet oyster mushrooms that are used by some of the local areaâ€™s best restaurants. Their produce currently features in dishes at Hispi in Didsbury, TNQ Restaurant and Bar and Fress in the cityâ€™s Northern Quarter, with chefs heralding the quality of the product and benefits of a local supplier. The product can be harvested at short notice and delivered to the customer within the hour.
Venue: WeWork No. 1 Spinningfields, Quay St, Manchester M3 3JE
Time: 6:00 - 8:00â€¨â€¨
