Acorn winners 2011 – Grant Lang

Age 29
Position Founder and managing director, Mozzo Coffee
Nominator Rachael Potter
Proudest career moment It is impossible to single out one moment; each day presents new challenges and opportunities for Mozzo. We strive to approach every day as the most important.
Greatest inspiration Team Mozzo - it simply would not be happening without them.
Ambition To build a value-driven company based on triple bottom line, that is still going and growing when I am long gone.

Grant Lang founded coffee company Mozzo when he left university in 2006. He created the world's first solar and wind-powered, art-covered coffee cart and used it to sell coffee to the people of Southampton.

Two years later he shifted his focus to supplying coffee to Hampshire cafés, restaurants and hotels. Mozzo now boasts an annual turnover of £750k and sold 60 tonnes of coffee in January this year.
