Our mission is to bridge cultures by connecting people to authentic flavors. We’ve enjoyed that for so many of you, Sanzo is a taste of home. As well that for others, Sanzo has been a source of discovery of flavors representing 60% of the world’s population.


We were inspired by a multitude of watershed milestones of increased representation for Asians/Asian-American Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) in TV, film, music, fashion and food. And we wanted to increase representation of Asian flavors on prominent grocery shelves across America. 


While there are many noble causes to support, where we think we are most helpful and indebted is to the AAPI community that launched us and to the independently-owned restaurant community that put us on the map. 


You can scroll through our Instagram to see how we’ve supported these communities plus healthcare heroes before and during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We can’t make any official claims, but here’s what we can tell you: our beverages are made using real fruit, no added sugar, artificial or “natural” flavors, or any other weird stuff you can’t pronounce. We’re also gluten-free, vegan and non-GMO.


We started Sanzo precisely because we couldn’t find beverages utilizing Asian flavors that coincided with modern diet and fitness trends.
