BAVARIA

BAVARIA BEER – It’s great to break the routine from time to time. Brewed independently, Bavaria goes it’s own way. Always challenging the accepted.

“We know that beer was already being brewed in Lieshout in the 1680s. But Bavaria’s evolution from a village brewery to the global brand it is today didn’t come easily.

It was built upon the single minded vision and determination of the Swinkels family.”

STARBUCKS

Starbucks Corporation is considered the main representative of “second wave coffee”, initially distinguishing itself from other coffee-serving venues in the US by taste, quality, and customer experience while popularizing darkly roasted coffee.[5] Since the 2000s, third wave coffee makers have targeted quality-minded coffee drinkers with hand-made coffee based on lighter roasts, while Starbucks nowadays uses automated espresso machines for efficiency and safety reasons.

Two millennials with a mission – Predator Endurance®

The ambitionOne® network is proud to share this story of two sisters, with a “thirst for success” Bianca & Natasha de Jong. Similar to our career initiative they are growing an active tribe of ambassadors for the world’s first healthy natural endurance drink; Predator Endurance®.

Thriving Predator sisters in the billion dollar beverage industry

Our generation of millennials is missing purpose, losing trust in the products we buy, companies we work for and politicians we vote for. We are two millennial sisters and political scientists, always fascinated by challenges within society and inspired to make a positive impact. From a young age we were leading a holistic lifestyle and reading labels. As customers we did not feel understood by multinational food companies and their sugars, artificial sweeteners and unhealthy ingredients. What can we drink to support our daily activities besides water and herbal tea? The good wasn’t good enough, because taking our water bottle with lemon juice on the go was not sufficient for more functionalities. This had to change.
