CH’I Herbal Drinks Co.

In the mid 1980’s founder, Gary Furniss, was a man on a mission – to bring nature into what we ate and drank. At a time when beverages like bottled water, squeezed juice, energy drink, plant milk and kombucha were futuristic ideas, he had a vision of a sparkling beverage with natural ingredients that could be a healthier alternative to the heavily sugared and artificially coloured and flavoured soft drinks of the time. His work led to him to a sparkling drink based on an ancient Chinese medicinal blend. He developed and launched the Original Sparkling Herbal Blend first to New Zealand in 1987 and then to Australia in 1988. CH’I Drinks have built from this revolution over 30 years ago.
