About My Business

Pete's Natural Sodas is a sustainable soda company based in Motueka, New Zealand, where nature's finest flavours are served with an eco-conscious twist. What sets us apart? It's simple, our devotion to all-natural ingredients. Say goodbye to imported concentrates! We take pride in using only freshly squeezed NZ fruit juice, delivering sodas bursting with authentic taste. But our dedication to sustainability goes even further. At our solar-powered factory, we harness the sun's energy to fuel our operations, leaving a smaller carbon footprint. And when it comes to our glass bottles, we've got a green secret ' they're crafted from an impressive 70% recycled glass and fully recyclable, making each bottle an eco-friendly choice. But that's not all. Our commitment to farewell plastic led us to embrace Biowrap, a sustainable alternative that replaces harmful plastics in our packaging. Together with paper labels and an electric car, we're making strides in reducing waste and promoting a greener planet. Our journey began with a mission for authentic soda. Founder Pete noticed a gap in the market filled with high-sugar imported concentrates. Determined to create something better, he started crafting lemonade, sowing the seeds for Pete's Natural Sodas. But Pete's vision extended beyond just crafting refreshments. He saw the unfortunate waste of perfectly good fruits in NZ due to market constraints. Driven by a desire for positive change, Pete introduced our "FairTrade@Home" initiative. By paying a fair price for this unused fruit, we rescue it from going to waste and create a sustainable cycle of goodness, supporting local growers and reducing food waste. Our efforts have not gone unnoticed. Celebrating our dedication to quality and sustainability, we proudly showcase awards for our outstanding flavours! So, join the fizz and taste nature's best. With Pete's Natural Sodas, you sip more than just a delicious drink, you become part of a movement that cares for the planet. Each refreshing gulp is a step towards a brighter, more sustainable tomorrow!
