Diverse Business Leaders 2020: Angela Zeng, Fulfill Food & Beverages

When Angela Zeng came to St. Louis from China in 1996 to get her doctorate in pathology at Saint Louis University, she brought a diverse cultural and scientific background to the region’s plant-science industry. Zeng, 47, used her belief in the medicinal properties of far Eastern remedies to co-found Fulfill Food & Beverages in St. Louis, and launch the plant-based Karuna Beverages line.
