Janine is not your everyday self-made businesswoman. She grew her juice and smoothie empire in 2000 from her kitchen bench to an international success story. Since its inception three brands: Salsa’s Fresh Mex Grill, CIBO Espresso and Betty's Burgers & Concrete Co have joined and continue to grow year on year.
Janine’s business approach has made her a leader in her field, with BRW listing Janine as one of the top 15 people who have changed the way business is done in the last 25 years and Bastion Collective listing her as one of Australia’s top 20 most successful Australians in 2019.
Apart from her Directorship with Retail Zoo, Janine is a Director for the Australian Pharmaceutical Industries (API) and is an ambassador for Australia for UNHCR helping to create awareness for refugees around the world.
Janine is a bestselling author of The Accidental Entrepreneur, has featured on Channel TEN’s, Shark Tank as an investor and TEN's Australian Survivor as a Champion competitor. She also co-hosts her own podcast with Margie Hartley; ‘Superwomen We Ain’t’.
Janine’s philosophy is simple – if she can do it, anyone can. “I still love getting up every morning and being a part of this great adventure. I’ll keep doing it as long as I love it and who knows where we could end up next!”.
