Ben Goodwin

Co-founder, CEO and Formulator

Ben Goodwin co-founded OLIPOP in 2018. In favor of his entrepreneurial spirit, he forwent an environmental science degree, has a passion for health and wellness that stems from personal experience. After a childhood on the standard American diet, he had an epiphany at just 14 years old and lost 50 pounds with daily exercise and mindful eating habits. These positive changes resulted in a deep curiosity of nutrition's effect on physical and mental health, making Ben a relentless scholar of the human microbiome and ways to leverage it for overall wellness. This passion led him to wanting to offer a nutritious take on something consumers already love, soda, and the creation of OLIPOP’s “OLIsmart formula” to reintroduce nostalgic flavors with a healthy twist.
