Plant-Based Coffee Creamer

Nutpods was born out of founder Madeline Haydon's impatience for a wholesome dairy.
Nutpods is a wholesome dairy-free coffee creamer made from heart-healthy almonds and
MCT-rich coconuts. Nutty and delicious nutpods are made from simple, clean ingredients. They
are soy-free, carrageenan-free, and made without artificial flavors or colors. Nutpods come in
three unsweetened flavors: Original, French Vanilla, and Hazelnut.

“I have a ceramic sign in my office that says "Dream Big," and I have a coffee-mate taped to it to remind me of why I started this company.” —Madeline Haydon

What drove you to start your company?

I believed that consumers wanted and deserved to have a better coffee creamer that had clean ingredients, wasn't loaded down with sugar and actually tasted rich and creamy.

What are some things that you had to work on and cultivate over the years?

Going outside of my comfort zone. It's scary and hard but I always feel like my world is a little bigger and I'm blooming a bit more each time I do it.

What’s one of the greatest bits of advice you’ve received this year?

Know what are "allowable weaknesses". No one is perfect and the amount of time and effort to "fix" our weaknesses can be better spent focusing on our areas of strengths.

When was the last time you did something that truly scared you? What was it?

The audacity of hope. This year, we applied for the Inc 5000's list (we placed #13 and #2 in Food and Beverage!) and we also applied for Entrepreneur of the Year and we won! We are a small, humble brand, but we are not afraid to dream big! If you can't envision it, you can't
achieve it.
