Systm Foods, a joint-venture functional beverage brand platform between Systm Brands and GroundForce Capital, has acquired Humm Kombucha, a producer of low- and zero-sugar kombucha and gut-health beverages. Humm will join brands Rebbl and Chameleon Organic Coffee in Systm’s portfolio.
The deal advances Systm Foods’ strategic objective of creating a leading functional beverage platform and strengthens the portfolio’s position in refrigerated, ready-to-drink beverages, a company release said.
Humm was founded in Bend, Ore., in 2009, and has developed a portfolio of functional beverages that includes the first and only Whole30-approved kombucha. Made through a proprietary fermentation process, Humm Kombucha is raw, vegan, keto-friendly and gluten-free.
