At Zola, we celebrate that feeling of exhilaration when you are inspired to raise your arms up high.
We believe that natural hydration and the power of plant-based ingredients are the keys to unlock your inspiration from within, and we are proud to make delicious plant-powered beverages that provide the energy and focus you need to crush your day.
Surfing is my passion, and at the end of a really fun wave – I often turn around, look towards my friends, and raise my arms up high as I fall back into the ocean. That is my moment of exhilaration.
I invite you to drink Zola, experience Plant-Powered Hydration, and show us what inspires you!
Founder & CEO
From the jungles of Brazil to the coconut groves of Thailand, we’re proud of our long-lasting relationships with partners around the world who are essential to the quality of our products.
That’s why we’re passionate about doing business right—by our customers and by our growers. From the Açaí harvester 30-feet up a palm tree to the farmer out in the coconut groves, we treat the people we work with ethically, and with respect. We believe in our product and the people who make it great.
We also believe sustainable growing, harvesting, and packaging isn’t just the right thing to do for the planet, it’s the right way to run our business. In Brazil that means we help our Brazilian partners earn more money from harvesting Açaí berries year after year than they would chopping down the palms for short-term profits.
When it comes to sustainability here at home, we use recyclable cans and bottles. We also use Tetra-Pak, a packaging system that ensures the product is safe while retaining nutrients and flavor. It is made from renewable materials, recyclable paperboard and requires no refrigeration when distributed and stored, which means a lower carbon footprint.
In 2001, our CEO Chris Cuvelier was in the juice and smoothie industry, where he first heard of Açaí. He was blown away by how much flavor and nutrition were packed into these little berries. Açaí berries inspired Chris to start Zola and become the first beverage company to bring bottled Açaí Juice into the United States.
Chris didn’t want to stop at Açaí – he wanted to expand Zola to include coconuts, his favorite source of hydration after a good surf session. He tasted coconuts from around the world until he found the most delicious variety, which led him to Thailand.
Since the early days of Zola we have sourced the best plant-powered ingredients, and combine them with Mother Nature’s best source of electrolytes and hydration to produce great tasting beverages to fuel you. Chris continues to find the best sources of plant-powered hydration to deliver better-for-you functional beverages to fuel you wherever the day takes you.
Zola delivers delicious hydration beverages made with plant-powered ingredients that provide the energy and focus you need to crush your day. Because Zola knows that natural hydration and the power of plant-based ingredients are the keys to unlock your inspiration from within!
