Like all good things in life Papaya was created to make things better.

Better for businesses and people.

Our founder entrepreneur Nick Edwards has a passion for making ideas and plans happen.

An innovator in the drinks field, with over two decades experience of building well known food brands, he knew there must be a smarter way to manage compliance.

And so Papaya was born. A software tool developed to give complete assurance while saving time and money.


It’s quite simple really, by bringing together compliance and learning in one clear easy to use dashboard format.

And by understanding there is no one size that fits all – Papaya was built to be adaptable to different needs.

For Nick and his team, it’s always about how they can add value. That’s why Papaya has evolved with the companies we work with and why we’re considered a partner not a provider.

Initially developed as a solution for the food manufacturing industry others quickly saw the benefits Papaya offers.

Today we work with a broad range of forward thinking organisations empowering them to achieve their learning and compliance ambitions.
