CommunityZ Chest: Caroline Bennett - Finance & The Fishing Industry Post-Brexit

Z/Yen conducts an irregular series of short webinars, CommunityZ Chest, featuring people from its various communities and clubs, viz. technology, financial services, civil society, and business. These webinars provide an opportunity to meet people from the wider CommunityZ, to share ideas, and to make connections.


After a career in finance in Japan and London, Caroline Bennett founded Moshi Moshi in 1994 and started the kaiten-sushi revolution, simply because she loved sushi and was convinced other Londoners would as well. Since then, the restaurant has stuck to time-honoured Japanese tradition, serving authentic Japanese food made by our chefs with many years of experience.

Caroline is at the forefront of campaigns to protect fish stocks, and has won a number of awards, including the prestigious Green Apple Award for the Environment, the RSPCA Award for Animal Welfare, and she was lauded as a 2009 international Seafood Champion by SeaWeb's Seafood Choices. Moshi Moshi was one of the first five restaurants in the UK to achieve Marine Stewardship Council accreditation.

Caroline was the author of Sushi 500 published in 2013.

She sat on the Board of Slow Food and remains involved through Slow Fish, is a Trustee of Open Seas Trust, a Scottish charity seeking to limit scallop dredging, and founded Sole of Discretion CIC to safeguard the livelihoods of small-scale fishers and their marine friendly fishing methods.
