Melanie is an experienced marketer gaining her training at Kraft and Sara Lee. Prior to creating Poppilu, she nationally launched the fairlife® dairy brand and acquired a joint venture partnership with Coca-Cola Co. It was this incredible start-up journey that inspired Melanie’s interest in entrepreneurship. Melanie founded Poppilu in 2017 as a result of an insatiable pregnancy craving for citrus. Unsatisfied with the available sugary-sweet, not-so-citrusy beverage options, Melanie set out to create Poppilu: an accessible brand that maximizes citrus refreshment in a healthier way for everyone to enjoy. Poppilu was named after her daughter Poppy who sparked the pregnancy craving.
