Social Enterprise beverage brand #drinkinghelps
“Our goal was to challenge the corporate soft drinks giants, dominating the market with their artificial, unhealthy and unethical range of fizzy pops. Instead of maximising shareholder value, we wanted to find new ways of supporting the people along the supply chain of the Global South; from the tea growers in Sri Lanka to the passion fruit farmers in Peru.
That’s why our range of soft drinks supports Fairtrade and sustainable, organic methods of agriculture. What’s more, 5p from every bottle sold goes to the Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation, with over £5 million raised for social projects in the growing regions to date. Since our humble beginnings in Germany, our team of global game changers has grown to 100+ and now spans across eight countries.
