Lucy Rout is the 26-year-old founder and creator of Tabuu, a brand creating sustainable and stylish modern day pill cases, designed for people who don't want their medication to define their lifestyle. After being diagnosed with a rare pancreatic cancer in 2019, Lucy was told she would need to take medication every time she eats, for the rest of her life. Her journey led her to find that there were no plastic-free, sustainable, stylish and durable pill cases on the market and after feeling let down by the lack of products available for people living with needs like hers, she designed her own.
Lucy launched Tabuu in September 2021 whilst also working for Amazon as a Startup Development Manager in Sustainable Innovation. With a bachelor’s degree in Business and Management from Durham University and previous experience at Unilever and Just Eat, Lucy has sound business knowhow and strong entrepreneurial acumen.
