BEND, OR, June 24, 2015 Humm Kombucha, one of the fastest-growing kombucha companies in the world, announced today that it is partnering with Lakewood, Colorado based Natural Grocers, an industry leader and innovator in natural and organic food distribution.
“We couldn’t be happier getting to work with such an amazing, dynamic company as Natural Grocers,” said Humm co-founder Jamie Danek. “It’s amazing to partner with a company that shares so many of the values we have at Humm. Our companies both believe everyone should have access to healthy food and beverages, and that it should be affordable to everyone. You don’t always find that mindset in business.”
Six favorite flavors of Humm are now available nationwide in Natural Grocers, including, for the first time, stores in Colorado. “Nobody knows Colorado health food shoppers better than Natural Grocers,” continued Danek. Humm will be available for free taste testing in all of Natural Grocers’ Denver and Boulder stores for the week of the June 24th launch.

Kombucha contains B-vitamins and minerals, as well as probiotics for digestive health. Humm’s taste is beloved by kombucha drinkers and converts many people who have tried kombucha but dislike the stronger, vinegary taste of many brands.
