Mr Lee’s Noodle Company took to number 90 spot in this year’s Startups 100 list with its range of gluten-free noodles.
Entrepreneur Damien Lee created the business after he was diagnosed with late stage four cancer and told he had a few weeks to live.
After fighting the cancer into remission, Lee launched the noodle brand to disrupt a market “traditionally littered with brands full of poor nutritional value”.
Mr Lee’s sells its noodles through its website and via Amazon and has also created its own ‘Noodle Kiosk’ vending machines to deliver its cup noodles. The first machine was put on trial at Bournemouth University.
