About Kombucha Summit

After our amazing event in Berlin in 2019 and two virtual events in 2020 and 2021, we are extremely excited to host this year’s Kombucha Summit as an in-person event again.

From conversations with hundreds of kombucha producers, we know how challenging it can be to build a sustainable kombucha brand and business. Kombucha Summit is here to provide a knowledge exchange and networking platform for kombucha producers from around the world and help them succeed.

The two-day conference will gather commercial kombucha producers and industry partners in one place for networking, knowledge exchange and a lot of kombucha tasting. Our main goal is to help kombucha producers develop amazing products and scale their businesses. We will also just have a good time!

COVID-19 remarks: We will announce any updates regarding COVID-19 regulations on our website, social media and through our newsletter. As of now, there are no limitations to in-person events in Berlin. For any questions, just contact us!

About Us

Meet the team behind Kombucha Summit.

Fabio Carlucci

Founder & CEO of ROY Kombucha

We opened our own kombucha brewery in the summer of 2019 in Berlin and have been experiencing the needs and challenges of kombucha brewers first hand. As a former community builder in my previous career, I felt a format like Kombucha Summit was missing. Bringing the whole industry together to learn from each other and network is what we set out to do, with the goal of helping each other and the kombucha market succeed.

Venue

An amazing location with loads of entrepreneurial history.

Kühlhaus Berlin is a cultural landmark, and a unique example of pre-war industrial architecture. Today, it is an event location, located at the junction of the districts of Schöneberg and Kreuzberg, with Mitte only a stone’s throw away.
