In Byron Bay, Australia, Pimp My Salad is making waves with its range of vegan and gluten-free toppers. They are skilfully carving a niche in the salad toppings food sector, adding a healthy and vibrant touch to plant-based food accoutrements.
Founders Olga Plotnikova and partner Alex Komarov made career switches to focus on Pimp My Salad. Plotnikova, who held a PhD in medical biology and had a decade-long career in cancer research in the US and Australia, recognised the importance of a healthy everyday diet in disease prevention.
Leveraging her knowledge, Olga played a key role in developing the brand's nutritious products. Alex, on the other hand, has a background in physics and spent the past two decades creating digital products. He worked with start-ups in Silicon Valley and operated his own digital product design studio. His expertise brought a unique perspective to the creation of tangible products and encouraged innovative thinking within the company.
