Lemonaid Beverages will be bringing its popular Fairtrade soft drinks Lemonaid and ChariTea to the UK.
Both ranges are made from natural, organically grown ingredients and are free from artificial flavouring or preservatives. Iced tea range ChariTea is made from freshly brewed whole leaf tea, refined with pure juices for a soft drink that is only 15–17 calories per 100ml serving; while soft drinks line Lemonaid is made from fresh juices, featuring a similarly low calorie count of between 25 and 30 calories per 100ml serving.
Lemonaid Beverages originally started in Germany and sought to support local projects that improve social, ecological and economical structures in less fortunate parts of the world. To date, it has raised more than £560,000 for development aid projects across the world, and aims to bring that figure up to £1m by the end of the year.
Lemonaid and ChariTea will be available in 330ml bottles in Selfridges, Whole Foods Market and Harrods for between £1.29 and £2.49, with £0.05 from the sale of every bottle being donated to the not-for-profit organisation Lemonaid and ChariTea.
The company explained a little more behind the socially conscious ethos of the brand: “Every bottle sold actively supports social initiatives in the farming regions where the raw ingredients for Lemonaid and ChariTea are grown,” it said.
“The charity’s principle aim is to help people to help themselves, because empowered people hold the key to overcoming many of the world’s problems.”
