Imagine starting a food brand without any FMCG experience, manufacturing a product in a saturated market, out of your garage in your local town. Now imagine four years later that brand is a household name, is turning over millions of dollars in revenue, is selling nationally and overseas, and has just purchased their own facility to manufacture their product, and products for other Foodpreneurs.
Sounds unreal. But it’s not.
This week on the podcast I chat to Cian Dawson and Courtney Brown, the co-founders of Gym Bod – A better-for-you ice cream start-up with a loyal following of fitness enthusiasts and health-conscious consumers, now retailing in over 1,200 locations around Australia and New Zealand.

🍨 Their biggest challenge to date.
