Nottingham entrepreneur reaches the finals for prestigious award

Founder and managing director of The Good Food Group and The Buyer’s Discovery Club Ross Carlin has been announced as a finalist in the Food & Drink Entrepreneur Of The Year Award for 2022.  

The annual event looks to recognise and champion inspiring entrepreneurs, and shine a light on those who set up breakthrough businesses, saw dramatic growth, or pivoted their business to adapt to the exciting and ever-changing food and drink landscape.  

Ross is a multiple business owner, SME specialist, and aspiring mentor, who founded The Good Food Group in 2018 and officially launched The Buyer’s Discovery Club in 2022. 

Ross said:

“I’m delighted and honoured to be a finalist for the entrepreneur award.  

“With a passion for all aspects of business, I've built my career around my interests in health, wellbeing, and nutrition. I’ve worked in various roles within the sector, in some of the largest online and retail nutrition businesses in the UK and the world, allowing me to set up two disruptive and successful businesses.  

“Being listed as a finalist has come at an incredibly exciting time, after the launch of The Buyer’s Discovery Club earlier this year. I've been working incredibly hard with my excellent team and we’re all really looking forward to where this new venture takes us.” 

The Buyer’s Discovery club is an innovative digital match-making platform, which helps the UK’s leading retail buyers and disruptive new food, drink, and nutrition brands find one another in a seamless product discovery process. The platform has already signed up some of the biggest names in the sector, including global fitness brand Shreddy, new plant-based vitamins brand Nutrigums, and premium food and meal planning brand Muscle Food.  

Ross’ entrepreneurship was celebrated last year as a finalist in The Grocer Gold Awards and the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. At the Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2022 he will be up against other game-changers from 200 Degrees Coffee Roasters and Jake & Nayns’, with the winner announced on 28 April.
