Notes to journalists

The company have been based in Bristol (UK) since inception in 2017 after CEO Andrew Philbrick, on sabbatical after successfully selling Africa’s largest financial data company, met a friend, who at the time was building a small plant community and together they couldn't understand why trustworthy plant care information was so difficult to access. With this in mind, Candide was started with the desire to make plant information accessible and digestible to the public.
Three years later, they are a team of 70+ engineers, botanists, entomologists, content writers and growth marketers germinating the first genuinely global gardening ecosystem.
