Phil Smith, the founder of successful brand Shoots & Roots, quit his office job to travel the world, came back vegetarian (and later vegan). He decided he wanted to become a chef and worked through some of Ireland’s best Veggie restaurants. Phil then set up Shoots and Roots 4 years ago. He now employes 5 staff, runs 6 weekly markets in Dublin, wholesales into Avoca stores and sells into 12 Supervalu stores.
Phill will take part in Feeding Vegans Panel on Sunday 29th September.
