Established in 1989 The Guaraná Company was originally set up to supply a diverse range of premium guaraná based products from Brazil, supplying them to the open market in the UK using fair-trade ethics. We offered an exciting range of products to support a busy lifestyle and enhance our quality of life, health and well-being.
We specialised in providing high quality, ethically traded, unique superfood and superfood-blend products, organically sourced where possible, for retail, wholesale and distribution. We manufactured our own label products and export our products to international markets. We were proud to offer the highest quality products at a competitive rate.
The Guarana Bar in Brighton
1999 saw the launch of the first Guarana based retail store and boutique bar in the UK and Europe.
We were based in Sydney Street, in the North Laine area of Brighton. Customers were able to relax upstairs in our chillout lounge (with the longest plant in Brighton!) or shop downstairs whilst having a coffee or sampling one of our many smoothie and shake recipes. These were truly delicious, healthy and revitalising and stimulating - consisting of anything from our best-selling Brazilian Acai, Peruvian Maca to Spirulina, raw chocolate and Guarana to name just a few. We also offered cold-pressed fresh vegetable juices and retail all the tools, ingredients and advice you need to juice at home yourself.! A real Aladdins cave of health, nutrition and stimulation.
Guarana at the Festivals
The 1990's saw the rise in popularity of Guarana and as we toured more and more festivals awareness grew and many people found it useful in their day to day lives. These festivals included Glastonbury, Womad, Big Green Gathering, Reading, Brighton Pride, Strawberry Fair and Metro Weekender.
