It was on Copacabana beach, with nothing but the sunset and a cold beer for company, that James Wormington realised experiences like this are even better when shared. ‘What if there was an app that enabled backpackers to find groups of like-minded adventurers?’ he thought, and Travamigos, the Group Travel app was born. Since then, what began as a sandy-toed, light-bulb moment in the summer of 2015 has become the go-to platform for backpackers everywhere. We encourage you to be adventurous, to look out for each other, and ensure you always make time for a cold beer together, wherever you are in the world.

"Together with our project partner Top Oriental, we consider the main industry challenge is the lack of manufacturing of niche oriental food. Given the rising consumer demand, We see this as a great opportunity to reshore manufacturing capability within the UK, and create new jobs to integrate and scale up the capability to meet demand domestically and in foreign markets. Top Oriental revealed that due to the sharp rise of demand but lack of such supply, the vast majority of oriental protein based food are illegally smuggled into the EU and UK markets from Asia. This illegal trade restricts the emergence of a diverse UK supply base."
