Inspirational students enjoy huge success at entrepreneurial food festival

Young Enterprise company Jaroholic sold out of all their gift jars at the Eat Festivals vegan Food And Drink Festival two hours early.

Jaroholic was invented by students from The King Alfred’s School, an Academy, in Somerset and raises money for the Love Musgrove campaign that helps the children’s wing of the Taunton hospital with much-needed funds.

Their choice was inspired by former TKASA student Joe Laoutaris who lost his battle with cancer in 2015.

Jaroholic are now developing their product line further before the next leg of the Eat Festivals competition that will take place in Orchard Shopping Centre in Taunton on 9 February.

The Young Enterprise competition allows students to develop their employability skills during their time in the sixth Form: leadership, communication and problem-solving in particular.

Head of Sixth Form Jonathan Gaskell said: “This is a brilliant little firm with a big heart in memory of a former student. We are delighted they are doing so well and they will go far.”
