Spencer Craig

co-founder, Pure

Spencer Craig is the co-founder of Pure, the UK’s fastest growing food-to-go chain. Twice named in The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 as one of the fastest growing companies in the whole of the UK, Pure is now backed by Whitbread. Trading from 21 shops all over London, Pure was founded in 2009 by Spencer Craig and Ed Bentley. Spencer and Ed’s ambition was to put pleasure back into food consumed whilst at work or on the move. They became tired of ham & cheese croissants for breakfast, a triangular sandwich for lunch or salads that don’t fill-you-up. So Spencer and Ed set about creating a menu which was delicious, natural and filling. The proof of Pure’s success is in the (sugar-free!) pudding as it continues to expand on high streets and travel hubs in 2020.

Spencer will take part in the SRA panel which will explore eco-issues challenging food to go in 2020, including ways of reducing plastic, food waste and meat.
