A serial entrepreneur, Ben Lewis’ experience lies at the intersection of brands, technology and food. He has worked extensively in the organic food industry, honing a well-rounded understanding of consumer facing brands and what it takes to build them. Ben has helped pioneer trends like cold-pressed juice and cold-brew coffee, taking them from obscure, emerging concepts to household buzzwords.
Ben’s first foray into business was in high school when he founded a charitable bottled water company out of the back of his car. As a student at Wharton, he co-founded The Epic Seed, a Greek yogurt brand with a cult-like following and distribution in thousands of stores that he later sold. Most recently, Ben built a national distribution company which acted as an incubator to up-and-coming food and beverage brands. Over the course of four years, Ben grew the company from zero to $25 million in revenue and a team of 75 people, building a nimble just-in-time supply chain spanning eight regions.
Ben’s accomplishments are a direct result of his willingness to innovate and use unorthodox solutions to transform businesses. Through his many experiences, Ben has developed a deep understanding of the obstacles and demands unique to modern consumer products marketed to a younger generation—especially those related to food.
Today, Ben is the co-founder and CEO of the direct-to-consumer startup Little Spoon, a fast-growing, venture-backed baby food and early childhood nutrition company reinventing the modern parent’s experience of keeping their child happy and healthy.
Ben is passionate about design, healthy living, food of all types, and creating processes that run smoothly.
Ben grew up in Pittsburgh and currently lives in New York City.
