Skinny Green Co

@skinnygreencobyronbay

Skinny Green Co are a local Byron Bay company, a business born from the desire to create a healthier society world wide. They wanted to create a Matcha Elixir based drink that was 100% natural, super good for you and something you would enjoy drinking. And with this simple idea, Skinny Green Co was born.

The idea for creating Skinny Green Co came from them being involved in the fitness industry and feeling that the fitness market was flooded with health drinks that are full of artificial colours and sweeteners. We believed there was a gap in the market place to be filled with a premium, organic and natural product. Which is why they decided to create a Matcha Elixir that was 100% natural, super good for you and something people would enjoy drinking.

BOD Kombucha

@bod_drinks

Back in September 2016 when Emma & Nicole launched Bod Kombucha, they knew very well they were onto something big. With their other food manufacturing company heading into its 4th year at the time, they were both well in tune with the changing demands of the health conscious consumer. They’d also been eagerly tracking data out of the US about the rise of functional beverages.
Nicole, a practicing naturopath, was reading more and more studies about the benefits of fermented foods (Kimchi, Kraut, Kefir and of course Kombucha) and entering into functional beverages arena seemed like a natural progression. So in September 2016 they rolled up their sleeves and went for it.
Today Bod Kombucha is available nationally in over 700 stores as well as in neighbouring country Singapore. But the team have not stopped at Kombucha. They have developed some market firsts in a Prebiotic Soda range using coconut cider vinegar and very soon launching Australia’s first shelf stable probiotic sparkling mineral water and a range of shelf stable probiotic sugar free sodas.

Vodka Soda &

@vodkasodaand

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a vodka, soda & fresh lime? But why can you only buy one at a bar?

Tired of scouting bottle shop fridges only to see a wall of colourful sugary drinks with so called ‘natural’ flavours? Done with carting around a bottle of vodka and bags full of soda water, only to end up with a flat drink?

We just wanted vodka & soda!

Inspired… V & S made their own, put it in a can and called it Vodka Soda &.

Love Ludie

@loveludie

Fun and youthful is how Love Ludie creator Jenna Hutchison describes her range of scented candles, which is rather fitting considering the name for the business came from her imaginary friend.

“It sounds a little crazy… but yes, Ludie was the name of my imaginary friend when I was little,” she says. “I came up with the name ‘Love’ Ludie when I was trying to think of a blog URL. I wanted something that no one else would have and that meant something to me”.

The scents vary from Vanilla to Rose, covering beautiful salted caramels and rustic pear – each crafted with a labour of love.
