CEO & Founder
As an industry veteran with 25 years of experience, Ali has always been at the cutting edge of wellness providing clients with extraordinary, nutritionally valuable and vibrant foods. In the 1990s she founded Ravenous, one of London’s most notable and creative Catering & Events companies and the first to offer mouth-watering dairy and wheat-free food to clients. This laid the foundations for what was to become POW Food after spotting a gap that great-tasting, nutritionally designed food was inaccessible to most corporate companies and employees.
Co-Founder, Head of Sustainability
Emily qualified in Business Sustainability Management through The University of Cambridge and is a certified Health Coach. With a social media following of over 120k, she uses her platform to speak about wellness, mental health and sustainable living, Emily heads POW's Sustainability strategies and Marketing Communications while working alongside Ali on business growth and development.
Creative Head Chef
Charlie has an eminent creative flair for profound taste that transpires through all of his food. Coming from a family line of catering industry experts, his Grandmother founded "Gay Gourmet" in the 1970s and published many recipe books. Charlie grew up around food being an intrinsic part of his life and he trained as a chef working in some of the best restaurants in London. For 20 years he has worked with Ali as Creative Head Chef.
