The Crowd means community
The Crowd is here to increase diversity.
The Crowd means learning and exploring together
The Fermentation Crowd
Based in culturally diverse Amsterdam, Cultcha Kombucha is a unique, female-owned, artisanal microbrewery (the first in the Netherlands). We craft a healthy, authentic and delicious elixir, selecting only premium ingredients of the highest quality, whilst remaining devoted to the environment.
Similar to the alchemy that takes place during the fermentation process, where the community of bacteria and yeast transform humble tea and sugar into myriad health benefits in the form of a delightful tonic, we too experience the synergistic effects of working together and growing within our local community. For us it’s not just about cranking out another hipster drink. It’s about giving back the most precious thing we know to the community who has made Amsterdam our home.
Therefore we hand -brew, -bottle and –label, with passion and pride, every single batch of Cultcha Kombucha, the surprisingly delicious health remedy that’s been part of our daily lives for decades.
Willicroft Plant based cheese
In 1957 my grandparents moved to Willicroft Farm in Devon with 1 tractor, 12 cows and a pack of cigarettes. They started farming to tackle the greatest issue facing humanity at that time - feeding the nation after the Second World War. They built the farm from the ground up turning it into one of the most respected dairy farms in Devon.
Much like Willicroft Farm, we're also addressing the greatest issues facing humanity today - the warming of our planet. We're reimagining how we consume cheese. The mission is different, but the keys to success the same - dedication, partnerships, and real love and passion for what we're doing.
Cultures and fermentation play a huge part in cheese-making. We're reimagining how we consume cheese combining age-old techniques with a more planet-friendly ingredient base.

My Vegan Fam
Hey there, this is Valentina!
Busy with Vegan food and Nutrition since my eighteen (which is quite some time ago, now) together with my husband I have always loved to produce our own food: tofu, seitan, tempeh, fresh pasta, bread and pizza, kombucha, fermented drinks and vegetables...cakes and anything that involves chocolate. Recently, I have discovered a burning passion for Tempeh that pushes me to get out and spread the love and awareness for this fantastic yet not so known food.
MyVeganFam originates from our family of four but with the time the meaning got wider, embracing everyone that feels responsible for a more sustainable way of eating, living and respecting other living beings. Anyone is welcome to feel part of the Fam!
I hope you get inspired by the pictures and the loves that shines through them, and that you like our Tempeh as much as we do!
Peace, Love and Tempeh - Valentina
Roots, Rice & Beans
Our good friend Andres from Roots, Rice & Beans made it his mission to embrace the community to learn more about sustainable farming, regenerative agriculture, seasonality and local food choices with the aim to create a regenerative society. We believe that having knowledge on composting, harvesting, and where your food is coming from, we can create a bigger impact today! We share so many of Andres values and are super happy to have him as a friend and partner on this common mission to create more diversity (inside & outside).
Andres develops new creations with us and together we are working on his famous Taco box which includes our raw, fermented Salsa!
Tom and Charlotte simply have one goal and that is to make Europe’s best tasting kombucha. YAYA Kombucha is working on a mission to bring soda back to life. YAYA Kombucha is a freshly brewed, unpasteurised product made with 100% organic and real ingredients like loose leaf theas and cold-pressed juices.
In the brewery in Amsterdam the whole team is dedicated to sourcing the best ingredients, like organic, yuzu juice from Japan and interesting net hop varieties.
Tom: “We wanted to make something that is unique in flavour, refreshing and with the perfect sweet and sour balance”.
OH NA MI is Kimchi. It does not come from a precise recipe, but through research has become a patchwork of my experiences in horeca over the past 19 years, and the teachings of my mother who continues to bestow generations of kimchi knowledge to me.
Traditional authentic Korean kimchi for professionals and supermarkets.
Alex Boyce is a big part of the Crowd since day 1, with him, we were also able to develop our famous Kimchi Kraut which is made from organically certified ingredients and has a well-balanced umami taste.
OhNaMi is also part of Kitchen Republic which is the Amsterdam food start-up community kitchen we are based at.
