Who Founded The Kombucha Shop?

Kate Field, founder of The Kombucha Shop started her career as a culinary and nutrition educator in Washington DC. She focused on educating low-income families while nurturing her passion for brewing Kombucha. She was certain that with some experience and her background in nutrition she would be able to grow her passion into a company. In the beginning, she focused on sourcing organic sustainable products while searching for premises to start from. She now heads up the company as CEO and founding member.

Founder’s Story

In 2013 Kate discovered her love for Kombucha and due the to cost of buying it ready-made, investigated the option of brewing it herself. At the time there were not many options around for brewing kits, she knew there was a gap in the market for high-quality brewing kits and clear instructions on how to make your own Kombucha. She managed to get her first factory up and turning a small room rented in a warehouse where she started creating her kits and growing her organic cultures.
