AYATANA Kombucha
Co-Founder of AYATANA Kombucha

Our story started in 2018 when the development of the Kombucha started. By the end of the year, we had the production line set up. We introduced AYATANA Kombucha on the market at the beginning of the summer of 2019. Our goal is to introduce the ancient know-how of making Kombucha, along with all the benefits it holds to a broader audience.

What‘s your current stage?

We are a relatively new brand of Kombucha. At the moment we sell in Slovenia, with a plan to go over the borders. We produce Kombucha in-house and have the full capacity of 28.000 liters a month.

What excites you most about Kombucha and its future?

We are going back to basics. Kombucha is an ancient product of our ancestors, and we truly believe in bringing their knowledge back. Kombucha is the future and our mission is to educate people about fermented foods, take them away from unhealthy drinks, and show Kombuchas' benefits on their health and well-being.

What are your expectations in attending the Kombucha Summit?

We cannot wait to meet our fellow kombucha brewers and discuss way in which we can all works towards bringing this amazing food to a larger European audience.
