A favorite drink in our native country of Georgia is made from rosehip berries that are often handpicked by mothers and grandmothers. We wanted to share that taste of tradition with the world.
We were also looking for a way to help local refugees who had been displaced by regional conflicts and were struggling to support their families. We formed a cooperative called TKIS NOBATI and began hiring refugees to pick rosehips and make NADI.
Each bottle of NADI creates jobs and provides financial stability and opportunities for refugees and their families.
Rosehips are one of the best naturally occurring sources of Vitamin C, with as much as 25 times more Vitamin C by weight compared with some citrus fruits. They also have bioflavonoids (Vitamin P) that help our bodies absorb Vitamin C more efficiently and they contain Vitamin A, Iron and B Complex Vitamins. For generations, Georgians have used them to make tea-like drinks and juices to boost immunity, increase energy, and prevent and treat colds and other common maladies.
