Former Premier League footballer, Thomas Robson-Kanu is founder of the award-winning Turmeric Co.

Thomas played for West Bromwich and Wales before retiring in 2021 to focus on bringing awareness to the power of natural nutrition. He founded The Turmeric Co in 2018 after finding his homemade turmeric blend invaluable in supporting his recovery from injury and the physical demands of training.

We unpack the business’s market impact, the vision for The Turmeric Co. and why Thomas thinks most ‘health’ drinks and supplements qualify for the big bin of bullsh*t.
