MACACHEROS and MACACHERAS

Representing Macacha in stores, at festivals and events... all the fun stuff!

Yasmina Guemar

I have been into healthy eating and wellbeing for years and enjoy lots of sports, including, gymnastics, trampolining and yoga. I was always keen to find a plant based protein supplement that would taste good and make me feel great, so, I'm really glad that I finally found one and can now spread the word! I have to admit, I'm also a big 'eco warrior' just like Macacha. I’m studying Nutritional Therapy and I love talking about all things health related!

 

Nicolas Raffray

I have a strong understanding of the styles of training for different athletes and their subsequent needs from playing sports to high levels at school. Through my experience it has always interested me how nutrition affects performance. After much research into medical studies, environmental data and logic derived morality I became vegan. I'm proud to be part of a company that holds itself to high ethical, environmental and health standards.

 

Iman Hassan

As a health and fitness professional I am very proud to be an ambassador for MACACHA, to represent a brand that produces quality and innovative products with optimum health in mind, without compromising the health of our planet. The values and ethos of the company enable me to be my authentic self. It is a pleasure to work with like-minded individuals and be part of a movement that empowers people through better wellbeing.

INÉS HERMIDA
FOUNDER

Before I started MACACHA, I was Head of Health and Beauty at Whole Foods UK for 8 years. I’m all about natural ingredients products - free from preservatives, colorants, fillers and petrochemicals. Plants are the future! As a source of protein and nourishment, and as a better alternative to petrochemicals because they are renewable. I wanted to create plant products that are beautiful and convenient and make it easy to switch from conventional ones, so you can join this plant party!

 

Leslie White 
SALES

I am so excited to be a part of the MACACHA team! I started my career in publishing where travelling internationally was a part of my day-to-day life. The jet-set pace led to a focus on keeping healthy on the road (you'll always find plant protein shakes in my carry on!). It's at MACACHA that my skills as a sales person and account manager meet wellness, and it's a joy to sell a product so carefully formulated and beautifully designed! Our blends are perfect for your next adventure!
