Digital Marketing Manager

Jelly Drops is a socially driven start-up focused on meeting the nutritional needs of people that struggle to maintain a regular diet. Inventor Lewis Hornby was first inspired to create the Jelly Drops product when his grandma Pat, who had dementia, was struggling to hydrate. The story resonated with people all over the world and went on to receive global press coverage and multiple awards. This incredible viral story led to large waiting lists in many territories leading to Jelly Drops’ UK launch in 2020, the US in 2022 and Canada in 2023.
