Anna is one of the co-founders of Two Chicks. Anna and Alla launched Two Chicks in Selfridges in 2007 to introduce the first liquid egg white into retail in the UK.

In 2005 Anna took a trip to the US and was instantly stuck by the popularity of egg white as a fat and cholesterol free, lower calorie alternative to whole egg. Aware that they didn’t have such a product in England, she and her friend Alla identified a gap in the market. Two Chicks egg white is now available in every multiple in the UK, as well as having listings in France, Belgium, Holland, UAE and Hong Kong.

The Two Chicks range also offers an ambient egg white, a liquid whole egg, a fresh pancake mix, and a healthy snacking product – Chirps – high protein bites made with egg white.

In 2016 Anna and Alla won the Entrepreneurial Spirit Award at the Variety Catherine Awards, set up to celebrate inspirational women in business. Just one year after the company launched they made the national finals of the HSBC Start-Up Stars Awards, the UK’s premier competition for young businesses.

Prior to founding Two Chicks, Anna worked in television news, journalism and PR. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of York and a Masters in Broadcast Journalism from City University of London. In her spare time, she enjoys horse riding and writing poetry.

Anna is joining our Shoptalk Panel on “How to access and approach buyers” on Thursday. Get your tickets here.
