Meet the Team

Richard Clarke

Founder & Managing Director

Before setting up Ingredient Communications, Richard spent 16 years working as a B2B journalist, specializing in the food, nutrition and personal care industries. During this time, he realized that there was a gap in the market for a PR agency that was as passionate about the ingredients sector as he was. As a result, he founded Ingredient Communications. Today, he remains just as committed to the ingredients industry as ever and is proud to represent some of its most innovative and successful companies.
