The Richard Branson of food, Metcalfe has huge successes to his name in Pret a Manger, Itsu and Metcalfe’s Skinny. UK retail sales of the latter hit £10.7m in 2015 thanks to year-on-year growth of 67.4% [Nielsen]. And further growth looks likely now that Kettle’s US owner, Diamond Foods, took a 26% stake for a reported £3m in January to drive European expansion.
