Ben Holden is the Co-Founder of Lo-Dough, an exciting new food tech start-up based in Rochdale. A revolutionary new bread and pastry alternative with 60% fewer calories and 90% fewer carbs than traditional bread and pastry products, Lo-Dough is sold exclusively online in a direct to consumer eCommerce model, subverting the traditional retail and distribution channels for bakery products. After 2 years of intense R&D, Lo-Dough started trading in June 2017 and has since acquired over 70,000 customers. eCommerce, social advertising and influencer marketing have been integral to the success of Lo-Dough. Ben’s first foray into food innovation was with the Manchester Egg in 2010 which resulted in an explosion of national press and the birth of a new regional pub snack still widely available today. Previously Ben headed up the award-winning digital agency, Cahoona, and started his career as Production Manager for national music industry directory, The Unsigned Guide, after graduating from Manchester University in 2002.
