Happy news: John Stapleton kicks off Rockstar Series at Home Grown

It’s easy to start feeling more than a little overwhelmed with the bad news right now which is why, with our partner Printed.com, we’re on a mission to highlight the good; the entrepreneurs & businesses who are doing amazing things, who have achieved so much (before and during the Covid-19 pandemic), who may have turned their skills to good and who deserve to be recognised.

Home Grown is a private members’ club for high-growth entrepreneurs. An exclusive membership club offering space for like-minded people to network, entertain and grow in beautiful surroundings.

The Home Grown infamous Rockstar Series returns in April, with multi-exit entrepreneur John Stapleton. Fellow member and Founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, Francesca James, will talk to John about his inspiring entrepreneur journey with over 30 years’ experience in pioneering new FMCG categories and establishing and growing consumer-led businesses in both the UK and the USA. In 1987 John co-founded The New Covent Garden Soup Co Ltd., which pioneered and grew the fresh soup category in the UK. On reaching over £20m revenue, New Covent Garden Soup Co was sold in 1998. John then co-founded Glencoe Foods Inc., designed to bring the fresh soup concept to the US. On returning to Europe, John established a consumer branded food consultancy and later co-founded Little Dish, which supplies healthy, natural and convenient meals and snacks to children over one year old. Having grown to approx. £15m annual revenues, John sold Little Dish in 2017.
