Organix is born
Organix was founded on May 19th, 1992 by Lizzie Vann. An activist, a political campaigner and a business woman who decided to create a baby food brand whose recipes and ingredients used only pure, natural ingredients.
She had a clear vision of what she wanted to make happen. She wanted a world where healthy, nutritious food was a real choice for everyone. She wanted children to eat food that didn’t have anything unnecessary added, or anything important taken away.
Then and there, Organix was born…
Since then, we’ve grown into a full-sized team of passionate individuals, including nutritionists, organic farmers and parents. All of whom are passionately committed to our cause.
Our mission, and still is, is to transform the poor standards within kids’ food - creating deliciously feel-good food for happy healthy days and is what drives us every day.
Lizzie knew that business can and should change society – for the better. Long before it was popular to put purpose before profit, we were just doing it.
Anna Rosier becomes MD
In 2006, Anna Rosier became our Managing Director and was with us for 13 years. Helping the business grow and grow without losing any of the core values that we were built on. Our spirit continued to drive and influence everything we did, from the foods we made, through to the opportunities that we provided. Always striving to put people first.
Part of the Hero Family
In 2008, Organix continued to grow and build on delivering its vision, mission and values when it was acquired by the Hero group, an international food company passionate about delicious, organic food - and a natural partner for Organix.
Since their foundation in 1886, Hero’s ethos remains unchanged – making high quality, natural products that are easily available to consumers. They have offices and production facilities spread across five continents, and all 4,000 full-time and part-time colleagues (including us at Organix) are passionate about what they do, and proud to call themselves United Local Heroes.

Philipp Von Jagow becomes MD
In April 2017, Philipp Von Jagow took over the helm of Managing Director here at Organix. This was also the year that we celebrated our 25th birthday. A fitting moment to say good bye to Anna and welcome Philipp to our team. Bringing with him lots of energy and creativity to lead us to innovate and grow to make our mission a reality.
