Camilla Barnard believes people should be able to feel good about loving food, not guilty. Her starting point was one of those good-for-you foods that may not taste so good: muesli. Trouble is that muesli is a commodity category dominated by big food companies, famous brands, and basic store products. Few would have the audacity to start there. She wasn’t a veteran of the food industry nor an expert in consumer marketing. And yet, her company, Rude Health, has become a familiar sight on store shelves and shopping baskets across the UK and Europe.
In this episode of What I Wish I Knew with Mike Irwin and Simon Daw, Camilla talks about how not knowing can be a strength, how Instagram has changed consumer behavior, and how creativity and attitude often leads to better solutions than expertise alone.
Camilla Barnard co-founded Rude Health in London in 2005 with her husband, Nick. Rude Health is on a mission to make the healthy choice a celebration, not a sacrifice, with their range of over 75 foods and drinks and a team of 45 glass-half-fullers. As well as being a full-time mum of two, Camilla is the creative brain behind the business’s marketing and brand development and is on a mission to inspire everyone to be in rude health by joyfully challenging the assumption that health food has to be bland and boring.
