Anna Bordignon - Founder

Anna has three little beautiful boys. She practised law for over 10 years in NZ and UK. She met her wonderful Australian husband while working in the UK. While she was raising her first son Anna completed an MBA as she was keen to move into the entrepreneurial world. She has a strong interest in children’s health and is involved in a number of health related charities both as a Board member or volunteer. She has no degree in mothering… but loves the trade! She wanted to mix mothering, kids and business together and saw a gap in the kids food arena. Hence Munch was born out of her first self published International award winning cookbook called Munch seasonal cookbook for baby and family.

Karen O'Shaughnessy - Sales Manager Australia

Karen has a health & sports background, working as a massage therapist before having her children. The arrival of her girls developed her interest in looking at food & how we store it. She wanted to ensure that where possible she could avoid having a huge impact on the earth & steer away from our often disposable society.

She was thrilled to be asked to test some of the recipes for the first Munch Cookbook, many of which have remained firm family favourites & is excited to be involved with Munch again after moving from her adopted home of Wellington in NZ to Melbourne.  Melbourne based Karen met her kiwi husband in her home country of the UK & has 2 wonderful girls.
