SENIOR NATIONAL ACCOUNT MANAGER

About Plenish

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.
