After 30 years of friendship and 60 months of development, Monatea was born.
We, the co-founders of Monatea, are avid hikers who love nature and the outdoors. 5 years ago we set out on a journey to reduce our sugar intake in our diets, this combination sparked the idea that would become Monatea.
Through our research, we found that the most effective way to reduce sugar intake was to eliminate sugar from our beverages. We scoured the shelves of retailers across the globe. From the US to the UK all the way to China we couldn’t find a drink that suited our needs. We needed something that didn’t compromise the flavour profile for its sugar content or used artificial sweeteners.
Growing up around the Fynbos of the world’s smallest yet most diverse floral kingdom in the Western Cape of South Africa, which we often hiked, we decided to produce a high-quality, botanical-based drink unique to this region but captivating enough to entice the world. Being the first of its kind we couldn’t find solid insights to guide flavour profiles. This led to 5 years of crafting a range of premium organic drinks with robust yet delicate flavours that are convenient and ready to indulge, guilt-free.
The Monatea brand is dedicated to developing products and platforms that help you to sustain a healthy lifestyle while delivering a unique and fantastic taste. We don’t need to make any bold health claims, as our ingredients and processes speak for themselves. We take a no BS approach to wellness and believe that by cutting away all the fluff, we are able to focus on just the good stuff!
