About Tohi

Tohi is a healthy lifestyle brand. We create innovative consumer products in the Healthier For You consumer space. Tohi beverages are the first realization of Tohi Ventures’ vision: a naturally functioning, clean label drink that can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere.

The Founders

Tohi Ventures is the creation of two female friends. Lifelong advocates for empowered personal health awareness, they were looking for ways to help themselves, and others like them, make purposeful decisions in the pursuit of wellness.

Inspired by the traditional use of natural foods and herbs for healing and balance, they chose the name Tohi, a Cherokee word meaning both “peace” and “wellness” because the two are so deeply intertwined. Tohi also represents life, a deep appreciation for the earth and our stewardship of it.

The perfect blend of nature and science, Tohi Aronia Berry Beverages were developed with respect for the environment, in collaboration with Aronia Berry growers and from a desire to contribute to a healthier world.
