Blend & Press Founder Emma Wood spent 10 years running organic beauty brand Neal’s Yard Remedies’ education department so has a deep-rooted understanding of the health and beauty benefits of plant-based ingredients.
Having a typical late-20s, hectic, London lifestyle Emma used her knowledge to blend (and press!) fruit and vegetables, always adding super-foods and herb extracts to ensure she (and her flat mates) were getting their daily fix of vitamins and minerals.
These delicious, nutrient-rich drinks provided a direct, instant hit of goodness to the bloodstream...and demand was growing. So in 2013, Emma registered the business name Blend & Press and started her mission to improve the health and wellbeing of the nation!
From a growing Instagram following, Blend & Press earned a three-month residency at trendy Shoreditch gym – Frame, serving cold-pressed juices and plant-mylks to their stylish clientele as pre and post-workout refreshments.
From there she went on to set-up her first B&P juice-bar in Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden where her bottled juices were bought by the likes of of FKA Twigs, Patti Smith, Florence Welsch and Catherine Tate.
Blend & Press have also collaborated with some of the world’s most globally recognised brands such as Nike, TopShop, Twitter, Anya Hindmarch, Mary Katrantzou and Sweaty Betty.
