BORN AND RAISED
Christchurch kombucha and cold-pressed juice producer Born and Raised is only available in its home city right now, but the brand has big plans to expand distribution nationwide and internationally. Rebecca Lee and her partner, Graham Moore, bought the business from founders Deirdre and Bryn Roberts last year. “I had always been committed to ethical, organic products,” Rebecca says. “This commitment was enhanced further once I had my twin girls, Maggie and Grace.”
The unique flavours such as KO1
(made with the brand’s orange, red apple, lemon and chilli cold-pressed juice) are made with certified-organic tea and as many other certified-organic ingredients as possible. “Our flavours stand on their own, balancing the right levels of sweet and sour, which make traditional kombucha so intriguing,” says Rebecca.
