A fresh eco-friendly start-up

I am Raphaël Girardin, I am a agricultural engineers with eco-responsible values. The venture started in 2013. The idea was to create the first bio, natural baobab energy drink.

Why superfruit ? As stated in the name, superfruits are fruit with outstanding qualities. This is the case with the baobab fruit, which is known for its medicinal and energising properties. Consumed in Africa for thousands of years, the baobab superfruit is the basic ingredient for all of our drinks.

For us, Matahi is above all a human adventure which combines innovation, respect for the environment and which is based on a lasting fair relationship with our producers.
