    We like highlighting the stories behind the brands we love. That’s why we reached out to Daina Trout, the coolest Co-Founder in the land + the CEO of Health-Ade. She has an incredibly interesting, grass roots story – and she’s raw + honest about the struggle that all entrepreneurs experience along that journey.

     

    Daina started Health-Ade Kombucha in 2012, alongside her husband and best friend. She was working in corporate America when she decided to pursue her passion for “real” food and develop the best-tasting, highest quality kombucha on the market. Under her fearless leadership, Health-Ade has grown from a small production, artisanal item made in a tiny apartment and sold at local farmers markets into the fastest growing brand in the category, now available in more than 12,000 stores and restaurants nationwide.
