The Pitch - Britain’s biggest small business competition

Meet our 2016 Pitch Champion

After hundreds of applications, we went from 50 bootcampers to our 15 finalists. We are excited to announce that Kafoodle is our Pitch Champion 2016!

Headed up by Tarryn Gorre, Kafoodle is a software that allows all businesses across the food industry to be compliant with international food legislation and communicate this to prospective buyers and consumers.

Tarryn wowed our panel of judges with her confident 3 minute pitch at our final in London, demonstrating a thorough understanding of her market and showing huge growth potential for the business.
