Co-founder of MOMO Kombucha and mother to two little girls (Cece, 6 and Kaia, 4) Lisa, started MOMO with her husband 5 years ago. The idea came after a trip to New York where she first tasted kombucha and loved how it made her feel – a healthy soft drink that was good for your gut was right up her street. They started the business from home but very quickly moved into a brewery at New Covent Garden Market.
Where do we find you?
MOMO is stocked at Ocado, Selfridges, Whole Foods, Planet Organic and many amazing independent retailers.
What was the idea behind starting MOMO?
Both Josh and I were working very stressful jobs and we were keen to get more balance into our lives. We fell in love with the brewing process and it was so rewarding to create something that tasted so good. From the beginning we wanted to create the UK’s best tasting, highest quality kombucha so we still brew in small glass jars and never filter our kombucha, so all the goodness is still in the bottle.
Hands down Matilda, I love my everyday specs and my sunglasses.
Very hard to pick and it changes all the time but I’d say at the moment it’s Raspberry-Hibiscus.
We’re spending Christmas at Josh’s parent’s house, which is always so relaxing as they are great hosts. Josh also has two sisters which means extra hands with the kids.
There are so many I’m proud of but here are my top three this year: 1. trip to Yorkshire to meet Robert Tomlinson, the fourth generation farmer that grew the Forced Rhubarb for our Limited Edition Natoora special; 2. our MOMO cold swim event at the end of January where over 80 people turned up for an icey dip followed by coffee and croissants; and 3. our birthday trip to Eastbourne with the team. We’ve got the best team and had an incredible time.
Getting my average step count up.
I’m really into the Stoics at the moment and liked this quote I read the other day: “Make the best use of what is in your power and take the rest as it happens.” I’m definitely not living by this all the time but it’s a good reminder.
I love the look of Henrietta in rose.
