About Brooke Harris:
Brooke is the founder of Goodmylk co. While living in L.A., the supposed “health food capital” of the U.S., Brooke's health deteriorated for a period of time. Brooke decided to turn to an alternative, plant-based diet as a form of healing medicine. But to her surprise, she found her effort to ‘eat healthier’ was actually making her more sick. Through research, Brooke found that many of the binders, thickeners, emulsifiers and preservatives in otherwise “healthy” food were unnecessary and unhealthy. It was then that Brooke realized that she would have to create that ‘something better’. And so she went on to create Goodmylk co., a game-changing, industry disrupting plant-based milk product for the masses.
