Mandy Schultz, Owner & Naturopath
Mandy is a naturopath who holds 25 years of clinical experience. Mandy has worked with several leading brands, which include a position as clinician and pharmacy trainer for Bullivants Natural Health Products, as well as the Naturopathic Services Manager for Greenridge Botanicals. Well versed in both seminar presentations and training, Mandy has been able to extend her knowledge internationally, working six months in Hong Kong training staff and clinic.
It was this passion about health that inspired Mandy to search for an innovative solution regarding fresh fruit wastage, leading her to create strawberry snack products free from sugar and preservatives.
Thus, LuvaBerry’s freeze dried range was born and the War on Waste Movement began.
