Helen Shadforth has become one of Australia’s most influential people in the artisan food world, having co-founded internet success story, Cheese Therapy, in 2015. Cheese Therapy is now Australia’s largest independent artisan cheese retailer. Central to Helen’s drive is her passion for supporting small business, which has seen Cheese Therapy expand into new food categories and now works directly with hundreds of small producers across Australia. In 2021, Cheese Therapy is undertaking a capital raising and making moves to accelerate its growth beyond the eCommerce gift of 2020.
A graphic designer and artist by trade, Helen understands that you don’t need to have all the skills to build a great business, rather, you need to know the right questions to ask and the right people to surround yourself with.
To help stop her mind from racing, you’ll find her at yoga or out running.
