Karviva™ Founder Shares Secrets of her Success


St. Louis, MO (July 2022) — What does it take to run a successful wellness beverage brand? Karviva™ Founder Dr. Angela Zeng shares the secrets of her success in the latest “Gooder” podcast by Retail Voodoo. The podcast features powerhouse women in the food, beverage and wellness industries who have found success on every level. 

“Gooder” Host Diana Fryc interviewed Angela about the Karviva brand and her mission to bring healthy beverages into homes around the world. “I believe that earth has provided us with an abundance of simple, natural and nutritious plant-based ingredients – not just to sustain life, but to help it flourish,” says Zeng. With that in mind, Angela says she started her beverage brand to take care of people in a natural way. 

In the podcast, Dr. Zeng shares the challenges and lessons she’s learned since founding her company in 2017. The company, originally named Karviva Beverage, began with healthy smoothie drinks. It was rebranded in 2022 as Karviva and expanded into the sports drink arena with its healthy ACE (Antioxidants, Collagen and Electrolyte) Sports Recovery Drinks and into the non-alcoholic wine area with its Karviva Unwined™ Functional Juice Blend. 

In this episode, Zeng discusses her entrepreneurial journey running a successful, healthy brand, where the idea for Karviva came from, how she manages food waste in an effort to be environment-aware, and generational differences in driving innovation and running businesses. Fryc also discusses the challenges and lessons Zeng learned while maneuvering a young, growing brand and the impact of veganism and plant-based foods on the American diet.
