Soraya Janmohamed

Soraya is one of Optibac’s Co-founders and Company Directors and has been with the business since it was formed in 2004. She is passionate about friendly bacteria and championing this important industry and her mission is to educate the whole world about the importance of the gut microbiome!


Soraya is an active member of the UK’s Probiotics Working Group, which works in partnership with our trade association the Health Food Manufacturer’s Association (HFMA). She is also a member of the European Federation of Health Manufacturer’s Probiotics Working Group and represents Optibac in the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on the Human Microbiome.


One of Soraya’s career highlights was appearing on BBC South Today, when she took part in a news feature covering Optibac’s coveted Queen’s Award in 2019.


When she’s not telling the world about friendly bacteria, Soraya likes to unwind by knitting, and playing the guitar very badly!
