About the founders

David Belo

David began his career as a cocktail bartender, mixing drinks at some of London’s most prestigious cocktail bars, restaurants and clubs, including London’s LAB bar as well as venues abroad, before re-training as an artisan bread baker and pastry chef. In a separate wave of inspiration, David studied the alchemical healing arts, sacred geometry and music, and wanted to bring those principles to his work with food when envisaging the Earth Loaf project.

At the beginning, in addition to recipe and package design, David was also the mechanical engineer of the Earth Loaf project. In-charge of setting up and maintaining production, building machines, training and sourcing ingredients, David set up the kitchen from ground up.

At present David is the head Chef and General Manager at Earth Loaf.

Angelika, who at the beginning assisted production and concept development, now supports new recipe design and steering of the project as it grows and evolves. She is also Earth Loaf’s Exports Manager, whilst balancing her time as a yoga teacher and alternative therapist in Mysore.
