    RIMI THAPAR CO-FOUNDER & HEAD HUSTLER

    Rimi is the Founder of LoveRaw, the creator of their Vegan Buttercups, Bars and Cre&m Wafer, and LoveRaw’s self-proclaimed ‘Head Hustler’. Starting out in 2013 with one food processor and a tiny kitchen, Rimi has built a company which now has over 42,000 followers on Instagram, products stocked in major UK retailers and ten other countries, and a growing team which has doubled in size in the last 12 months alone. After appearing on Dragons’ Den in 2017 (and turning down an investment proposal from Deborah), Rimi has continued on her mission to make legendary vegan chocolate with honest, transparent, no artificial nonsense roots. Now, she’s proving vegan chocolate can be a decadently indulgent treat that will smash your taste buds.
