This is our Founder and CEO Guka, with his sister, Sophia and cousin. Clearly already fuelled by their mum, Nina’s delicious smoothies…

savse-where-it-all-began

 

Guka, now older and with better taste in cars, grew up questioning the ‘healthy’ smoothie options on the market as most drinks were heat pasteurised, unhealthy and full of sugar, diminishing product quality, nutrition and taste. From that moment, his mission has been to change the drinks industry for the better. It was time to create his own. Guka believed people were ready for something different and deserved something better.

It was time to create his own. Guka believed people were ready for something different and deserved something better.

savse-no-compromise

No compromise became Guka’s motto. He refused to compromise on the quality, nutrition or taste, wanting to stay true to his mum, Nina’s values and faithful to the consumers by creating a drink that was truly nutritious and great tasting. After a long search, he found a factory that shared his vision, using HPP (high pressure) to preserve the natural goodness and nutrition of fruit and veg just like his mother Nina made at home for him and his sisters.

Savsé is not just another smoothie. It’s a celebration of magic, transformation and vitality. It’s belief in the joys of variety & great tasting flavours. A commitment to challenging the way things are. It leads and refuses to follow. For the future, not the past. Bound by no rules and challenging the status quo. It walks on the wild side. Dares to be different. Creates its own destiny. Inspires change. Embraces imperfection. Celebrates individuality. Flirts with danger. Transcends convention. Refuses to be ignored. But above all marches to its own beat.

Our tiny office housed the six of us…let’s just say, it was VERY cosy.

Team Savsé grows to a strong six as we start to talk to more people about the brand.

Initially Super Blue was made with three ingredients, but after receiving an incorrect print run of labels, Guka took the extra 24 hour window to develop the smoothie further.

strokeoffate

He made an overnight trip to the factory to cram some key ingredients into the mix, without which, Super Blue would not be what it is today. It’s now ‘crammed’ full of eight different ingredients, seven of which are high in antioxidants and has since won 4 awards…those last minute decisions really paid off.

We always have, and will continue to be different in everything that we do. It’s not cool to copy… at least that’s what our mum Nina always told us.

So to truly stand out from the crowd, we thought it was time to create packaging like no other. We went back to the drawing board to create a brand new look.

We launched our first ever digital campaign ‘#MySavséPromise’.

The first full truck load of product leaves our factory, that’s 80,000 bottles of Savsé making it’s way around the country!
