Briņķis explains that he didn't like the idea of buying juices and supplements in the shop. “I mixed my own teas and juices to bring along to help regain my strength. One day I had a thought - if I need this, maybe other people also want a natural refreshment,” says Briņķis.
In the beginning he experimented at home, but then worked with specialists at the Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies on the final recipe.
“I wanted to accomplish something big and lasting, and something that transcends borders” admits Briņķis.
This idea was something new for Latvia and abroad, so he began exporting to Germany and is now in 300 stores with plans to expand to Scandinavia. “ We're working with Edeka, Globus, All natura and other shop chains,” says Briņķis. He has several employees, but is very hands-on with the daily production process and in finding new markets.
“I think in Latvia it's comparatively easy to start a business, if only you want to,” says Briņķis.
“I really tried to do everything as simply as possible right here from Nākotne. Even the e-signature. I think I haven't even been to the Enterprise Register yet, I've done everything electronically,” said the entrepreneur.
