Alan Martin has worked in the Natural Health Industry for 30 years and has a diploma in Diet and Nutrition.   His passion for the industry began after meeting Rod Brennan from Blackmore’s Vitamins in the 80’s and this inspired him to make a career change.   

From the early days working in Holland and Barrett, to the late eighties and through to the late 90’s he owned and operated 3 Cullen’s Franchises, introducing a range of health foods and supplements and developing a healthy eating sector within the stores.   

After selling the business in 1998 he joined Kudos Vitamins as Sales Director, and was instrumental in growing the company.   He then Joined McKeith Research Ltd as Operations Director and worked with Gillian McKeith for four year on the You Are What You Eat Channel 4 TV Show.  He left McKeith Research with colleague Rob Steidle in 2008 when an opportunity arose to purchase the two long established Food For Thought Health Food Stores in Guildford and Kingston upon Thames.

Eight years on, Food For Thought has grown dramatically, year on year, despite the recessionary years and credit crunch, into a thriving modern business.

Four years ago Alan & Rob established a brand new company, BonPom Ltd, bringing to market, a range of RAW and Vegan foods, superfoods and ingredients.   BonPom has grown dramatically over the four years and is continually innovating new and cutting edge products and ideas.  

As with all Alan Martin’s ventures, he adds his own inimitable style and quirkiness to everything he does, he is certainly not predictable.
