In just three short years, FivePointFour has risen quickly through the ranks in the competitive online meal delivery space.

After only three years of operation, online healthy prepared meals company FivePointFour makes and delivers around 50,000 meals a week.

CEO Tamara Trentain, who will be speaking at our annual L!VE forum, Future Unpacked – Industry Game Changers in August, also recently snared an international award – she was named Female Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the Stevie Awards for Women in Business which is held in the US.

Trentain, who is president of the Brisbane chapter of The Entrepreneurs Organisation (EO), attributes her success with the business to her background as a marketer and entrepreneur, rather than a traditional manufacturer.
