London Met Foodies
Here are just a few of the past London Met students and graduates that we have helped in launching their food and drinks businesses.
Launched by Finns Anna Ojutkangas and Eve Suoyrjo, Arctic Power Berries are a range of healthy, natural berry powders that are available online and in stores all over the country.
Influenced by their grandmother who made and sold baobab juice locally in The Gambia, Isatou and Haddy decided to mix, test and perfect their native food recipe in London – Their healthy, no added sugar or preservatives BUI Smoothies.
Ayden and Jasmine have visited over twenty countries across four continents; unashamedly led by their stomachs. Inspired by their love of travel, they started their world street food business, Melting Pot LDN.
Oh Gee, Pie! is run by American London Met graduate Whitney Papa, where she bakes American style sweet pies, cakes, and other baked goods. She’s on a mission to design and bake amazing cakes and sell classic hand made American pies with a modern twist.
