Have you ever seen a fantastic food product from your region win an award and wondered how come you had never heard of them before? Or been on holiday and wanted to experience the best locally produced foods but not known how to find these? And if you put yourself in the shoes of an innovated food producer, how do you effectively reach the discerning consumers who will value your products with limited time and marketing budget?

Grace Mainwaring is developing a solution to all these problems. Grace was named as a finalist for the 2019 Innovate programme ( after pitching her idea “Naked Sprout” to a panel of investment judges. Naked Sprout is a mobile app platform which link boutique producers to discerning consumers and chefs, making it easier to identify and support local high quality food producers.

If you are a potential user of such a platform, either as a producer or as a consumer/chef, then Grace would be grateful if you could complete a short survey to help her validate and develop the idea: NAKED SPROUT SURVEY

If you would like to talk to Grace about how Naked Sprout may be able to address some of your challenges, then please get in touch with us at and we can connect you with Grace to talk further.

Stay tuned for further updates as Grace develops her exciting business idea!
