Promote health. Connect community. Celebrate gratitude. At Booch Organic Kombucha, we believe that healthy beverages are the basis for vibrant living. We use kombucha, the ancient elixir of yesteryear, to heal gut disturbances, one bottle at a time. We are committed to food security, socially responsible business practices, and to nourishing our community.
THE STORY OF BOOCH
After graduating with a degree in Health Science from Western University, Shannon Kamins was diagnosed with celiac disease. Bloating, sharp pains, and discomfort signaled that gluten and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) were becoming a problem. Her passion and advocacy for good gut health led her to earn a certificate in Food Security from Ryerson University and later join Weston A Price Foundation, where she continued learning about the effects traditional diets have on our bodies.
From fermenting oats and cabbage to kombucha—Shannon has become an expert in the ancient art and modern science of not only food fermentation, but ayurveda, herbalism, and many ancient healing arts.
Her love for kombucha, as well as for cultivating community, spreading knowledge, and supporting local organic food systems led her to open Booch Organic Kombucha (aka Booch), which is operated with eco-regenerative and sustainable business practices… and lots of love!
Booch has become a solution to fast-paced lives, where kitchen time needed to prepare traditional fermented foods is scarce. Putting her passion to practice and brewing authentic, small batch, craft kombucha locally in the Forest City for communities across Ontario to enjoy.
