How was Berkshire Partners selected?


Mielle selected Berkshire because of their experience in scaling consumer brands, and the support and belief the Berkshire team has in our greater mission and community.


What does this mean for the future of Mielle Organics?


Mielle Organics CEO Monique Rodriguez and COO Melvin Rodriguez will maintain full control of the company as majority owners, and will continue to lead the company. The company operations and decision makers in the brand’s future developments will not change.


What does this mean for Mielle’s customers?


Consumers should expect to see an even wider set of new collections and products to help with their needs, as we can now invest even more behind innovation, something we view as key to Mielle’s mission of bringing excitement with our products.


Will this affect the formulation of Mielle Organics’ products?


The formulation of all current and future Mielle products will remain the same. The brand will continue to produce quality, natural products for our customers. However, we will now be able to reach even more customers and make sure the product is accessible to all who need it. We’ll be able to invest even more into innovation and bringing truly unique, exciting products to our customers to address their needs.


Will Mielle Organics remain Black-Owned?


Yes. Mielle founders Monique and Melvin Rodriguez will continue to be majority owners of Mielle, and to serve as CEO and COO, respectively. The company will remain majority Black- Owned.


Why is this a historic moment for Black-owned, women-led businesses?


There are very few black, female entrepreneurs who have secured investments and grown businesses to this scale. This is an important example of the ability of Black, female entrepreneurs to successfully navigate and benefit from investment partnerships. Black businesswomen and entrepreneurs have the power to choose an investment partner that can assist them in scaling their companies while maintaining control of their destiny.


Will Mielle continue its mission to invest in the community?


Yes. A portion of Berkshire Partners’ investment will be used in support of theMore Than A Strand Community Reinvestment program, which is core to the company’s mission to strengthen the bond between mothers, daughters and young girls across the United States, Caribbean and Africa. We are now able to fund 60 applicants of the new NBH Professional Online Global Entrepreneurship Certificate Program (partnership with Rutgers University’s Office of Continuing Education and the Newark Business Hub). Berkshire is committed to working together over time to help grow our impact and reinvestment in our community.


Is this Berkshire deal similar to your original deal with New Voices?


Berkshire’s current non-controlling investment follows a non-controlling 2020 investment by New Voices founder Richelieu Dennis. The partnership with New Voices has been incredibly helpful to us and helped get us to where we are today. Just like New Voices’ investment, Berkshire’s investment is further validation and belief in Monique and Melvin, and what Mielle is building towards for the greater community.

Our traditional line of products can be used on children since they are made with all natural and organic ingredients and don't contain any harmful chemicals.

Especially the products containing mint, as the mint tends to have a tingling sensation on the scalp that may be uncomfortable for infants and toddlers.
