Co-founded by Rishubh Satiya and Akash Zaveri, Satiya Nutraceuticals owns “The Plant Fix- Plix”, a digital-first, clean label, plant-based nutrition brand, with a strong presence in the rapidly growing health and wellness segments in India.

“In partnership with Marico, we will prioritize strengthening the brand’s equity and expedite growth by expanding into new categories and channels.
