In 2011 Charlie and his brother Harry broke the unofficial world record for the longest distance travelled by kite – 1000km along the North East coast of Brazil. They ran out of food so lost 8kg in 2 weeks. This led them to find local superfoods to eat, which tasted fantastic whilst being incredibly healthy.
Returning home Charlie moved onto his brother’s sofa and quit his job to make the most indulgent food healthy. Just like he had found in Brazil. Oppo was born. It took a painstaking 25 months of research, four start-up grants and just £1.05 left in the bank account before he made the impossible possible, creating the world’s healthiest dairy ice cream. Harry joined formally and Oppo ice cream launched October 2014. Now stocked in 1600 sites across the UK and Ireland including Waitrose, Wholefoods, Ocado, Budgens, Holland & Barrett and Co-Op; key awards include:
