'Love Kombucha' are one of the biggest brands selling kombucha in the UK presently. The company launched in September 2013 and has quickly grown. Love Kombucha's drinks are stocked at Planet Organic, Wholefoods Market and Daylesford Organic, and in total 250 outlets across the UK. Company owner, Melanie Millin, came to kombucha through suffering from IBS and following a Paleo diet, where kombucha was recommended to her. After researching the market and feeling 100% better when drinking kombucha instead of her usual fizzy, sugary drinks, she promptly gave up her job as a head hunter to launch this company. She lives in ruralBerkshire with her partner and young son.
