In 2021, Karviva Beverage teamed up with the State of Missouri’s “BUY MIS-
SOURI” economic development initiative to actively promote products that are grown,
manufactured, processed and/or made in Missouri.

This collaboration resulted in Karviva, a minority and female-owned company, to
be able to actively promote its mission of healthy living and healthy living products
throughout Missouri and beyond. In addition, company leaders were able to meet an
emergency need outside the state through the ‘Buy Missouri’ program donating more
than 100 cases of product to those impacted by the winter storm in Texas. Karviva was
featured online and in numerous local and social media stories (see links).

The partnership led to a visit by Missouri Lieutenant Governor, Michael Kehoe, to

Karviva’s St. Louis plant. There, founder and CEO, Dr. Angela Zeng, was able to share
both her mission of wellness and tell her diverse and storied history. We believe the syn-
ergy of this collaboration has led to a surge in publicity and awareness about Karviva

Beverage as well as other Missouri businesses.
