The story:

The One Feeds Two concept was dreamt up on the streets of Edinburgh…

… by JP Campbell trialling it with his business selling gourmet soups to chilly Scots out of a vintage Citroën H-Van. It was here he paired up with grassroots feeding programmes providing school meals to children living in poverty.

37,500 meals and a trip to Kenya later.

JP returned home determined to take One Feeds Two global.

Buzzing about his idea, JP applied to Virgin Unite’s ‘Screw Business As Usual’ competition.

They put together a crack team to help him scale the concept.

Enter Mark and Owen.

The pair with the right experience and – more importantly – the enthusiasm to really get One Feeds Two off the ground.

Back in Edinburgh, JP sold Elephant Juice to focus on inviting the food industry to adopt One Feeds Two as an ethical standard

JP moved from corporate law to selling gourmet soups in his Edinburgh-based Elephant Juice Food Company. It was here he pioneered One Feeds Two. After a trip to Kenya, to see the impact One Feeds Two was starting to have on the school feeding programmes they funded, he returned home determined to scale the concept.
