UPCOMING EVENT FEATURING CAROLYN CRESWELL.
EVENING OF JUNE 4, 2014.
TICKETS GO ON SALE SOON!
Some 20 years ago Carolyn Creswell was told she was going to lose her part-time job hand-making muesli and she took the plunge and bought half the tiny business for $1,000. She was flat broke for the first five years and used to get her brother to syphon petrol out of her mum’s car when she couldn’t afford to buy any to do the next day’s deliveries. Over the last 20 years she has grown Carman’s to the number one selling muesli and bar brand on Australian supermarket shelves and now exports to 32 countries world-wide.
Carolyn’s way of running Carman’s has achieved recognition across a number of awards including being crowned the 2012 Telstra Australian Business Woman of the Year. All the while she has managed to raise four children 9 and under and maintains a successful marriage!
Today, Carolyn not only runs Carman’s, but also sits on the board of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation which puts kitchens and organic gardens in primary schools to give children the chance to grow, harvest, prepare and share food . And you may also recognise her from the Channel 10 show, Recipe to Riches, where Carolyn has taken on a mentoring role.
An inspiration to anyone plugging away at their dream, she is also extraordinarily proud
to keep Carman’s 100% Australian made and owned.
