Luxembourg startup TUKI is seeking $55,000 on Indiegogo. The aim of the crowdfunding campaign is to continue marketing its juice fruits, become the premium exotic juive brand, give more support to small Colombian producers and offer a more positive image of Colombia. We asked Harald-Sven Sontag to further detail the concept.
What is TUKI?
TUKI is a new brand of premium exotic fruit juices from Colombia. The concept is to offer the original quality of a fresh homemade fruit juice, but in a bottle and with a longer life cycle. We startup proposes an exclusive range of 5 flavors with an outstanding quality thanks to the revolutionary cold pasteurization technique.
With TUKI, we want to promote our country – Colombia -, make the Colombian fruit juices as famous as the Colombian coffee and bring our contribution to the foundation of Shakira.
How did you come up with the idea?
We are Angela and Harald-Sven, a French-Colombian couple living in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg – a small country located in Europe between Belgium, France and Germany. After a career in banking and finance, we wanted to do something useful with our lives. Because we were tired to hear bad things about Colombia, we were looking for an original business idea to change the bad image of Colombia, support the economy of our country and take social action for children. Finally, we decided to promote Colombia through its tasteful juices so appreciated by the Colombians themselves and the tourists which visit our country. We created TUKI, the toucan, with the traditional Colombian sombrero volteado, whose mission is to represent Colombia with his range of juice flavors.
