Young professionals at Cambridge business networking group, JCI Cambridge enjoyed an inspirational and engaging talk from Dragons’ Den winner, Ross Mendham, Managing Director of Barenaked Foods recently as part of the their motivational speakers programme.


Barenaked Noodles from Barenaked Foods in Norwich are a revolutionary low carb, high protein, gluten-free alternative to pasta and noodles made using the Asian-grown Konjac plant and are ideal for weight management. In August 2013, Bare Naked Foods’ Managing Director, Ross Mendham, appeared on BBC television programme Dragons’ Den and, after a dramatic pitch, secured investment from entrepreneur Peter Jones as business partner. The business has achieved huge success and Barenaked Noodles are now available both online and in Holland and Barrett and Morrisons stores across the UK.


Ross talked to JCI Cambridge about how he established the Barenaked Foods brand, his experience on Dragons’ Den and future plans for the company. He also gave practical advice to would be entrepreneurs via a questions and answer session.


Jenny Willatt, JCI Cambridge President said, “We are delighted that Ross came to talk to JCI Cambridge about his Dragons’ Den experience and how he’s developed the Barenaked brand. The talk was extremely interesting, resulting in lots of questions from would-be entrepreneurs from the audience who were greatly impressed with his determination and perseverance. Ross was happy to impart plenty of useful advice and share with us his inspirational personal journey.”
