Kari Sherman from Tom Pom Organic - Summer Q&A 2021
It’s June already and we’re half way through the year – it’s also officially the first month of summer, and what a glorious weekend we've just had!
Let's continue to celebrate the fantastic business owners we have in our region and beyond. Today we're talking to Kari Sherman who is managing director of Tom Pom Organic based in Guildford, Surrey. Tom Pom Organic offers a well-balanced weaning solution for parents who value nutritional transparency and want something closer to home-made meals for their babies and toddlers. Their hand-made, small batch production creates nutritious, ring-shaped purées and meals made using only the finest organic ingredients and are free from dairy and nuts.

JUNE is the first month of Summer – what will you be doing this summer in your business?
This June we will be continuing to grow our direct sales to London and most home counties, as well as expand our independent retailers and selected pubs and cafes. With British produce coming into season, we will be enjoying using local ingredients in production for some very tasty baby food!
What are your personal plans for summer activities?
We hope to visit my parents in the USA as it has been three years since we have seen them. Otherwise summer is for BBQs, friends and all the kids enjoying themselves.
June is National Smile Month. With that in mind, what things in your business/organisation/role make you smile?
BABIES - seeing our much loved young customers and fans on social media, enjoying our products, makes every day full of smiles.
As we hit this mid point in 2021 and we’re still coming out of the pandemic – which one business has really supported or helped you over the last quarter?
It takes more than one to support a business, and I am so grateful for my team iob Goldsmith from Spinnaker London for marketing and Lucie Ellis for her copy writing and editing. Without their support the pandemic challenges would have been very difficult.
Have you got any events planned for the coming months which you’d like to mention – where you and/or your business will take a leading role?
As a member of 1% for the Planet, we support FareShare in their work to provide meals to those in need and reduce food waste.
We are planning a special fundraiser for this incredible charity, so watch this space!
Homemade meals are the best weaning option for babies. Minimal processing, using the herbs and spices you cook for your family and using fresh ingredients offers little ones all they need to develop healthy food habits.
If you don’t always have the time, consider having some Tom Pom Organic in your freezer. Our hand-made, small batch production creates nutritious, ring-shaped purées and meals made using only the finest organic ingredients.
Every recipe is based upon the NHS guidelines and the rings are all freshly frozen to pack in nutrients, colours and tastes. Tom Pom Organic rings can be enjoyed frozen as a teether, defrosted as a meal, snack, or added to another meal for extra nutrients - providing important versatility for the weaning process.
