A serial start up entrepreneur, creative disruptor and restauranteur, Matt Reid has founded numerous successful businesses all held under Steelhead Group. These include Maximal Concepts, KIN Foodhalls, Far North Productions, Plastic Conscious and Disruption Labs

Based in Hong Kong, with an international focus, Matt has been at the forefront of pushing the boundaries of the Asia restaurant scene with Maximal Concepts.  Particularly with the creation of Mott 32,the Group’s flagship restaurant brand.

KIN Foodhalls mission is to create technologies to change the way we eat.  While the centralised kitchen enables the production of up to 1000 items per hour.  Food costs and inventory are monitored in realtime to minimise waste, and delivering is via compostable packaging and increasingly circular packaging. 

 

Through the cost savings created by this technology, KIN is able to invest in highly regenerative ingredients including organic, ethical, plant-based and locally sourced products – significantly reducing their environmental impact.  By 2025, KIN Foodhall plans to be largely circular in packaging.

Through these projects, Matt’s awareness of environmental issues and his desire to find solutions led to Plastic Conscious. Structured similar to a B-Corp, it was formed to help drive awareness and change in plastic usage via sourcing, supply chain and finance solutions working with major multinationals and innovative brands. Plastic Conscious is a partner in Reel Paper and Holdon – two rapidly growing CPG brands championing green alternatives in the paper and plastic sectors.

Matt believes re-purposing the power of business to be the principal driver of change. Harnessing creativity and popular culture, through inspiring and informative content and amplifying through hyper inter-connectivity is a key philosophy.
