Summary:

Join us for a special Female Founders’ breakfast with Hannah Carter, Founder and CEO of OGGS® and hosted by Meera Shah from Buzzacott.

OGGS®  is a plant-based egg alternative and bakery brand that has taken the UK by storm. With over 720 stores stocking OGGS®, including Waitrose and Sainsbury's, this is your chance to hear from the woman behind the brand.

After a successful career in pharmaceuticals and leadership consultancy, Hannah's shift to veganism led her to discover the hidden animal products in many common food items, including her beloved blueberry muffin. Frustrated with the lack of reliable plant-based alternatives, Hannah turned to aquafaba - a waste product from chickpeas - and developed a stabilised version that performs consistently. The result was OGGS® bakery range, which hit grocery shelves in 2019, followed by OGGS® Aquafaba - the world's first patented liquid plant-based egg alternative. The latest addition to the OGGS® family, Scrambled OGGS®, was recently awarded product winner in the vegan egg category by the Grocer.

Over breakfast, you'll get the opportunity to hear from Hannah on the following topics:

  • Her inspiring Founder journey from the pharmaceutical industry to entrepreneurship
  • Discover the challenges and triumphs of securing investment for OGGS® and how Buzzacott supported the raise
  • Learn the secrets behind securing major partnerships with leading retailers such as Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose
  • Explore Hannah's passion for making a positive impact on the environment through her innovative plant-based products
  • Get a sneak peek into the latest addition to the OGGS® family - a range of chickpea-based egg alternative products

Don't miss out on the chance to ask Hannah any burning questions and network with your fellow Female Founders’ over breakfast.
