Melissa Snover has been a successful entrepreneur for 15 years and is considered an expert and innovator in the food tech industry. In 2015 she developed the world’s first 3D printer for food to reach the consumer market with FDA and FSA approval, and has since launched her machines into retail outlets, amusement parks and education institutions all over the globe.
For the last 18 months she has been developing a patented 3D printing technology which allows her company Nourished to combine 7 different active ingredients into one personalised nutrition stack. Nourished launched in the UK in October 2019 and is the first nutrition company on the market to be able to offer totally customised nutrition subscriptions, entirely based on the consumer’s lifestyle and goals.
Melissa is passionate about sustainability and animal welfare and always strives to ensure her companies have a positive impact on the environment around them. That's why all of the ingredients used in Nourished are vegan and all of the packaging is plastic free. Melissa has gone to great lengths to reduce the companies carbon footprint, and sources 95% of its ingredients from the UK. Her technology allows Nourished to manufacture monthly orders with the exact amount of product and produce very little waste. It also allows for a higher absorption rate as the active ingredients have a higher efficacy from the short supply chain and by being digested in our vegan pectin gel, which is absorbed as a macro rather than a pill.
