As the industry progresses, consumers want drinks that can do more.

We’re starting with Fruit Infused Water, Alkaline Water, Smoothies and Cold Pressed Juices and then eventually progress into soups, Salads, snacks and full meals.
Natural gifts started two years ago when my friends and I were looking for alternative to the usual juice and soda. With my father going through chemo and my mother getting diabetes, I was at home experimenting drinks.
I wanted to give them something with no sugar, chemicals or preservatives. Just natural fruit juice and I learned by cold pressing fruits, we was able to uses just enough pressure to extract the juices while maintain the vitamins enzymes and minerals and by infusing the fruit with alkaline water, the drink did everything from flush toxins from their systems to keeping them hydrated and give them enough energy to keep moving throughout the day.
After sharing some with friends and family and hearing their response, I realize I could help more than just the people around me. With my family coming from Haiti, I got to experience what it was like living out there, having no source of clean water, at time literally drinking water out of a small plastic bag. Fast forward years later when I'm back in the US and see places like flint Michigan having issues getting clean water. We realize if we had a special bottle with a specific logo, the profits made with that bottle can be donated free clean water to places like Haiti and Flint Michigan. With that in mind, my friends and decided to go into business.
So we got our LLC, got an American Express card and bought some inventory to raise funds during a fundraiser and Original Web series about artists showing their natural gifts while promoting Natural Gifts.
The fundraiser didn't recoup the original investment but it taught us what we needed to learn for manufacturing, promoting and
distributing a product. Recently We held a test tasting party to try out different flavors
