  • Karma Cola UK

    Email:

    We believe what you drink should not only taste good, it should be good for the land, good for the people who grow the ingredients and as good for you as a fizzy drink can be. A few years ago we had a crazy idea that sent us on a search for cola, the name ingredient in the world’s most popular fizzy drinks. We wanted to connect cola drinkers with growers in a way that respected everyone and everything in between. It took us all the way to a small village called Boma in West Africa where cola nut is traditionally harvested and Karma Cola was born. Now, two years on, every time you buy a bottle, part of the proceeds go back to Boma in Sierra Leone to help rebuild in the aftermath of war. Karma Cola has already helped to build a bridge, a rice processing plant and send 45 young girls and boys to school.
