René is by now best known in NZ for his Kombucha. Many have enjoyed his food at the last few Prana Festivals and his Raw Chef Trainings, as well as Primal Seasons. Born in Berlin, Germany, he is now living with his wife, Lydia Miller, and their dog Blossom, their goats, sheep, cattle and chickens in Maungaturoto,  Northland. They are proud to now have René's Kombucha FULLY ORGANIC CERTIFIED with Organic Farm NZ.

 

kOMBUCHA

Kombucha is an effervescent fermentation of sweetened tea that is used as a functional food. Sometimes referred to as a “mushroom”, the Kombucha culture is actually a symbiotic colony of friendly bacteria and beneficial yeast (SCOBY).This tea-based drink has been known for over 2500 years in China and Japan and was used as a daily health tonic and natural remedy.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

"I personally have tried most of the Kombucha products on the market. For years I had been plagued with indigestion and reflux problems. No other Kombucha has been as effective as René’s in eliminating my gut health issues. I am  drinking it regularly and am trouble-free without any medication. I strongly endorse René’s Kombucha for the high quality artisan product it is."

René's Kombucha
is The real deal!

We have been stocking René’s Kombucha since July 2014. It has been selling steadily ever since. I can confidently say, among our regular customers we have a solid fan base for this product.
The customer service from René and his team is excellent. It is easy to communicate with them. René and his friendly team have organised and run several in-store tastings at our store over the past months with excellent feedback from our customers. Since we took René’s Kombucha into our range several other manufacturers have entered the market. We actually stock two of them alongside René’s.

A steady seller and customer favourite.

Farro Fresh has been stocking René’s Kombucha since May 2013. It is the first Kombucha we ever sold. Although we now stock 4 brands, René’s Kombucha is still going strong.
René has been very committed to personally run regular and frequent in-store tastings at all our shops. Over four years as a supplier, his Kombucha has developed a loyal following among the customers at our five Auckland locations.
We are very excited about the recent organic certification René’s Kombucha has received.
As a fresh food market we are supporting and relying on true artisan manufacturers and products and we're proud to support small New Zealand producers, like René’s Kombucha. We and our customers are acutely aware of the supreme quality traditionally produced foods and beverages offer.
We'd happily endorse René’s Kombucha as a fantastic example of an authentic artisan New Zealand product.

Best Kombucha out there.

I have known René for almost a decade as a good friend and mentee of mine. His passion for traditional foods and beverages is very inspiring and shines through in the excellent quality of his product: René’s Kombucha.
My background is in the fitness industry with strong focus on nutrition. For me and my clients integrity and quality are the key factors in proper nutrition. I believe that foods and beverages produced in traditional and natural ways, by people who care, can make a huge difference in our wellbeing and the health of our bodies.
I have tried pretty much every Kombucha on the market and find myself returning to René’s Kombucha every time. It is a unique product. One can taste and feel the difference.
I strongly endorse René’s Kombucha for its superior quality.
