Chloë Stewart scooped the prize yesterday at the Creator Awards, a global initiative by organisation WeWork which recognises and rewards creators from all over the world.

The 27-year-old is the founder of nibs etc. which fights unnecessary food waste by making breakfast snacks from juice pulp that would be thrown away.

Chloë successfully pitched nibs etc. on-stage to Ashton and the other judges busniesswoman Vanessa Kingori MBE, VOGUE publishing director Michelle Kennedy and app entrepreneur Jonas Templestein.

Chloë said: “I am absolutely overwhelmed. The fact that WeWork is investing in nibs etc. for the second time, is huge!”
