OUR PURPOSE IS TO INSPIRE EVERY ONE OF US TO MAKE A POSITIVE CHANGE FOR A HEALTHIER WORLD
Plenish is an award-winning plant-powered drinks brand that’s on a mission to fuel a healthier world. Everything we do is driven by the belief that we’re at our best when we’re running on plenty; and that’s as true for the earth as it is for us. Our products are designed to maximise plant-fuelled nutrition and minimise our impact on the planet.
Plenish is a business born from personal experience. Kara Rosen founded the company in the UK in 2012 after many years spent running on empty and becoming ill. Failed by traditional medicine, she began seeking out nutritional advice on how to replenish her body. She was blown away by the power of plant-fuelled nutrition to transform her health and, in the process, learned much about the huge toll that the modern diet heavy in meat, dairy and processed junk takes, not only on our bodies, but on the planet. She was inspired to create a company that does things differently – creating nutritious, delicious and unadulterated plant-fuelled products that are good for you and the planet.
Because they’re a brilliant, natural source of the nutrients that your body needs. For thousands of years we lived on a diet consisting largely of plants and yet in the last 70 years we’ve begun to eat far more processed foods and much more meat, dairy and sugar than we need. As a result, we’ve seen a rise in obesity and related diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Eating more fruits and vegetables can not only have a big impact on our health (learn more here) but also on our planet (learn more here). We know that changing the habit of a lifetime is never easy and, for most of us it won’t happen over-night, but we’re here to try to help everyone start somewhere in their journey to a more plant-fuelled diet.
Everything you need, nothing you don’t
Our products are created with just the natural ingredients they need to be deliciously nutritious and nothing else. You won’t find any added sugar, preservatives or flavourings in our juices. You won’t find any emulsifiers, stabilisers, gums or oils in our milks. Whilst most other companies fill their products with this junk because it’s easier and cheaper than making them out of more expensive natural ones, we don’t think there’s any point in making a ‘healthy’ drink if it’s actually full of crap. When you drink Plenish, you’re getting everything you need and nothing you don’t.
All our products are organic, meaning they are produced without the use of pesticides which are harmful for the farmers, the earth and you, when you drink them. Why ruin all that natural goodness by polluting it with chemicals?
In our search for the highest quality organic ingredients, we add another key factor into the mix – working with farmers who grow and harvest their produce sustainably. For our almonds, that means sourcing them from Mallorca rather than California where most brands get their nuts. Almonds are quite a water intensive crop and California is regularly ravaged by droughts. Sourcing our almonds from Mallorca may be a bit more expensive, but it means we limit our water-toll on the Sunshine State whilst also saving 4500 food-miles.
