Much like Andreas and Catarina, the founders of Dagsmejan we highlighted last week, Zoe and Tom are both partners in life, and in business. Having met at university in Manchester, they bonded over their love of fitness and a healthy lifestyle. Zoe learned about health and nutrition from her late mother, who had been in the health food industry for over 40 years, as well as through her travels. This knowledge and motivation has led her to start up her own business. “Having spent a lot of time with Ayurvedic doctors in Sri Lanka, I learned so much about herbs, spices and the power of the food that we ate. Turmeric, as it turns out, is one of the most powerful spices we can consume.”, says Zoe. With a background in pharmacology and professional experience in the medical world, through his studies Tom too began to discover that there was more to healing than conventional medicine had to offer. Keen to follow a more natural path towards disease prevention rather than reacting to illnesses he joined forces with Zoe to start Wunder Workshop.
Passion for a balanced lifestyle is at the core of the business, and it comes through in everything Zoe and Tom do. Showing us a glimpse of their "London life made bright" with Lumie lights and Wunder- potions, the Ayurveda-, nature- and sun-loving entrepreneurs walk us through their morning routines as well as their working day.
