Zen Moment Kombucha

In 2018 Nelson Meggitt asked “what if I could open a Kombucha Tea brewery right here in the Comox Valley? ” Community Futures thought why not?

After several years of home-brewing Kombucha with great enthusiasm and consistent positive feedback from those who sampled the product; Nelson Meggitt launched a Kombucha production business. Kombucha is an ancient Chinese herbal drink originating approximately 220 BC. It is served at room temperature or chilled and comes in a variety of flavours. Along with the health benefits of tea, Kombucha exhibits the same health characteristics as other pro-biotic foods and drinks for healthy gut function. As a brew master of Kombucha tea, Nelson ensures that each product and flavour is evidenced by his passion and integrity to promote wellness. This commitment to producing a superior product has been noticed and Zen Moment Kombucha is expanding to local retailers and food/beverage establishments.

Community Futures Strathcona was on my radar as a potential funding source from having known of them as far back as 2007 and from hearing some recent success stories from family and friends who had acquired business loans through them. The online application process was simple and I received a phone call immediately to confirm that they had received my application. The business analyst I dealt with was regularly in touch with me throughout the review process. It was a pleasure dealing with Community Futures and I’m very grateful for their willingness to step up to the plate when the bank said no!
