When Rachel Nolan left her high-flying job working with Condé Nast – the publisher of Vogue – she knew she was looking for a more fulfilling career. However, she probably didn’t envisage that her next move would see her build an international brand on the back of frozen avocados.

Her new venture started off small. Around eight years ago, Nolan and her husband Brian set up their first stall in Rathfarnham’s Marlay Park food market. Nolan had developed an ice cream – made using avocados instead of milk, aimed at Ireland’s growing vegan population.
