Courier 22: Young and Hungry

A horde of new food and drinks brands are coming to a supermarket near you.
In this issue of Courier, we meet the young and hungry businesses hoping to snatch a share of the big brands' shelf space. It's a journey rife with pitfalls – and plenty of startups fall by the wayside – but some plucky founders are persevering and achieving enviable growth.
We also head to Mongolia, to find out how British geomapping company What3words is giving addresses to nomadic communities – and reshaping the whole country's ecommerce capabilities.

Plus:
– We explore how a flood of new businesses are cutting out the middle men in the flower trade, and giving new life to local growers
– We meet Maria Raga, the fast-talking CEO of fashion app Depop, to talk US expansion, happy staff, Etonians and blockchain
– And cover a whole lot more, from art in Shanghai to upstarts in Ojai, sodas, sauces and supper clubs...
