FoodTrade’s founder, Ed Dowding, was lucky enough to be selected by Richard Branson as a Virgin Unite entrepreneur in 2013. Within the project, Virgin Unite discovers and celebrates the world’s most innovative individuals – helping them build successful businesses that positively impact communities and drive economic development.
