ABOUT ANDREW CARTER
Andrew Carter is co-founder and CEO of Smallhold, which is upending the food industry by growing mushrooms in Michelin-star rated restaurants and grocery stores, and through their network of on-site and macro farms. Today, 68% of all mushrooms consumed in the United States come from a single town in Pennsylvania called Kennett Square. That's 400 million pounds worth of mushrooms per year, which means that most mushrooms are transported across a vast distribution network to reach stores all around the United States.
Smallhold knew there was a better way, so they spent years creating a proprietary set of technologies that could allow them to grow mushrooms in an incredibly small footprint, in their on-site farms are about the size of a small standing cabinet. Smallhold is an incredible example of what the future of food looks like, and they're just getting started. In this episode, Andrew shares why everyone should watch the mushroom-focused Netflix documentary, Fantastic Fungi, his advice for building an incredible company culture, and the advice he'd give himself if he could go back to the start of his career.
