Tara Mei

Tara is our Founder & CEO.

I launched Mahalo in August 2020 to make it easier for independent farm shops and delis to source outstanding emerging brands. I'm also one of the cofounders of Bread & Jam: the largest community of food & drink founders in the UK. Passionate about food and drink, small businesses and being your own boss, I have supported the growth of 100s of brands and launched multiple food and drink ventures of my own.
