KrafTea Kombucha accepted into trade association

KrafTea Kombucha was accepted into Kombucha Brewers International (KBI). KrafTea Kombucha is the only commercial kombucha brewer in Central Massachusetts and one of only two in the state.

Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage flavored with juices and other natural ingredients that has been growing in popularity among health-conscious individuals, including a large following among millennials. It’s predicted that the kombucha market will grow 25 percent annually through 2020.

KrafTea Kombucha was established in 2015 as a brand of 3cross Brewing Company. KrafTea was born from a collaboration between Matthew Glidden, a Worcester-based kombucha brewer, and Dave Howland, founder of 3cross.
