GT’s Living Foods Celebrates 25 Years of Making Kombucha in the U.S.
The #1 Selling Kombucha Brand Introduces New Limited-Edition ‘Sacred Life’ Kombucha
GT's Living Foods, the #1 selling Kombucha brand in the U.S., enters the new year in celebration of its 25th anniversary and its continued mission to share the gift of Kombucha with the world. In honor of the brand’s history and the ancient tradition of Kombucha that dates back to 221 B.C., GT’s Living Foods will introduce Sacred Life, a special limited-edition Kombucha that will only be available during GT’s Living Foods 25th anniversary year.
Founder and CEO, GT Dave pioneered the Kombucha category in 1995 bringing the traditional Eastern drink to the U.S. market. The journey began when GT and his family were gifted a Kombucha SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast) and experienced first-hand the positive impact Kombucha had on his mother’s battle with breast cancer at the time. What started out of his home kitchen is now the largest producer of Kombucha in the world, leading what is expected to become a multi-billion-dollar category by 2025.
“I began bottling traditionally handcrafted Kombucha 25 years ago with a mission to bring authentic fermented food to the Western World,” said GT. “I feel blessed and humbled that in many ways Kombucha chose me as its steward which has allowed me to share a global message that living foods and all forms of life are sacred. I look forward to amplifying this message with even more people around the world for years to come.”
GT continues, “With the new Sacred Life Kombucha, we're displaying it in a limited-edition Sacred Geometry-inspired embossed glass bottle that showcases the ‘Flower of Life.’ The ‘Flower of Life’ is an extension of our Lotus Flower (seen on all our packaging) which has been a symbol of our brand for over two decades.”
The limited-edition Sacred Life Kombucha infuses fresh pressed ginger, young coconut water, and alkaline-rich blue spirulina that naturally gives the liquid a vibrant blue color rarely seen in natural food products. The blue hue comes from the antioxidant-rich qualities of spirulina and is symbolic of the life that flourishes around the planet and its precious oceans. Sacred Life is USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, traditionally handcrafted, raw, never processed or pasteurized, and benefits natural systems of the body through healthful microbes.
Sacred Life will be available at specialty, natural and conventional grocers nationwide.
