Derek Sarno's arrival in the UK in 2017 was a catalyst for the plant-based foods category going mainstream. He pioneered the development of the Wicked Kitchen line with his brother Chad and has been on a mission to create great tasting plant-based food for the masses. As always Derek is on the cutting edge of innovation Good Catch, a plant-based fish company being led by his brother Chad. In this podcast we explore Derek's background, his time running a personal chef service, to how he came to live in a monastery, and his passion for farming organic produce. We also get into the practicals of getting a product listed in Tesco, the magic of mushrooms, and how to balance idealism with pragmatism when working to change the world.
