Catherine Conway
Founder, Unpackaged

Catherine Conway’s career has spanned both the private and not-for-profit sectors, always focusing on the interplay of how business interacts with, and supports, the society in which it operates. A true innovator, Catherine set-up Unpackaged in 2006 as the world’s first modern zero waste shop, which has since developed into a leading consultancy with clients such as Waitrose, Planet Organic, Lush, Farmdrop, River Cottage and a host of smaller independent brands and retailers. Not only has Unpackaged created a new, desirable, sustainable category in modern retailing but Catherine’s passion for developing systems to enable refilling, and reuse, within various food sectors has enabled many other businesses to create real and lasting change.
