May 30, 2024
Chris Jenkins is promoted to the new title to ‘prioritize the growth of building purpose driven brands across its portfolio, while championing other sustainability and wellbeing initiatives.’

Hain Celestial Group has created a Global Head of Impact job title and promoted longtime employee Chris Jenkins into that role. “Jenkins will oversee Hain's Global Impact Strategy, which prioritizes the growth of building purpose driven brands across its portfolio, while championing other sustainability and wellbeing initiatives,” the company announcement said.

For more than a decade, Jenkins has led “Impact” for Hain’s Ella's Kitchen business, “the UK's leading baby and kids' food brand. There he spearheaded a sector leading climate action strategy, oversaw the brand's B-Corp certification since 2016 and led the brand's advocacy work on food and childhood poverty and biodiversity.”

The company called the job creation key to “advance the company's global impact strategy and progress the goals outlined across three core areas: Healthier Products, Healthier People and Healthier Planet.” And the release noted he will continue to provide focused leadership and oversight to the impact work at Ella's Kitchen.

"I have always believed that if we are to address social and environmental challenges, business needs to be part of that solution and lead the change,” Jenkins said. “We have a strong base to build on as we work together to grow our impact and deliver meaningful change for people, communities and the planet, on a global scale."
