This is a fantastic opportunity to join MACACHA's leadership team and play a key role in guiding our next stage of our growth as our first Head of Operations.

Our first products are selling at premium health food stores including Whole Foods, Planet Organic, As Nature Intended, Ocado and Revital as well as Holland & Barrett.
