ABOUT VINNY

Making conscious gifting and workplace wellbeing thoughtful, functional and planet-friendly.

MEET THE FOUNDERS

Hi, we’re Matt and Isla, the founders of Vinny. And that’s Iggy, our other Co-Hounder (yes, we went there) giving Matt a big kiss, in case you were wondering.

Many of the brands we work with – from Apple to Oatly, Moneybox and Barclays – know Vinny as the cool, healthy snack-filled vending machine in their work lobby.

And while Vinny is still fueling teams across the UK and cheekily winking at passersby – we’ve evolved a lot in the last year.

Conscious, purposeful gifting 🎁

Today, we’re all about conscious, purposeful gifting. Bringing planet-friendly products to people all over the country through our thoughtfully crafted gift boxes.

We’ve searched far and wide for the very best health, wellbeing and lifestyle brands who share our values around sustainability to create a totally unique gifting experience. Packing our wellness boxes with products that truly walk the walk when it comes to sustainability.

Vinny helps you deliver a much needed care package to a heart-broken bestie or give regular tokens of appreciation to a team of a hundred. Whatever the reason for sending a little love, we’ve got a box of guilt-free smiles for everyone! 😋

Matt Kitchen
Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer

A designer’s eye, a manager’s mindset and a tactician’s touch – that’s Matt.

Having cut his teeth with some of London’s trendiest eateries and watering holes, Matt knows first hand what it takes to make it in the food and beverage industry.

As an advocate for plant based food, Matt understands the struggles of trying to find snacks and products that are healthy, convenient and not harmful to the planet. It’s this problem that started Vinny, actually. 

Matt’s creativity and passion for design is what’s helped Vinny be the fun, cheeky brand it is today. 

Fun fact: Matt loves drawing on himself, with over 75 tattoos across his body. He likes his Mum one the most, because he just loves his mum.

Isla Castle
Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer

Wearing her heart on her sleeve and apologising to no-one for it, Isla is the fierce purpose-driven flag-bearer at Vinny.

Having started her own plant based journey in 2016, she struggled to find food that was fast, fun and fulfilling. 

Leveraging her restaurant and catering experience, Isla co-founded Vinny, bringing her vision of healthier snacking and workplace wellness to life.

Isla’s keen eye for progressive products and brands that share their values makes her the perfect product lead and curator for Vinny. 

Fun fact: Isla s a self-professed vinyl junkie. Collecting hundreds or records to date.
