Our story

Hero event

Most energy drinks are full of synthetic caffeine, artificial mood boosters and loads of sugar. We thought there must be a better way to achieve the same thing with plants.

Turns out we weren’t the only ones. The Sherpa people have been drinking a natural energy brew for years. And theirs wasn’t made with ingredients you can’t spell. It’s a clever mix of natural caffeine, electrolytes and anti-oxidants.

Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary; first two men on Mt. Everest

Inspired by their brew, we started TENZING – named in honour of Sherpa Tenzing Norgay. As one of the first two men to scale the world’s highest mountain, he was famed for his burning ambition, drive for adventure and eternal smile. Today he’s our guide and inspiration, and we’re proud to have our drink carry his name. Today TENZING is even available in most shops all the way up to Basecamp.

Mother Nature blessed us with all of the the powerful ingredients we needed to make Tenzing. That’s why we believe it’s important for us as a company to give back and and do all that we can to help our planet in return. One of the ways we do this is by re-investing 5% of our profits into environmental projects. Our first project is something especially close to our hearts. With the help of Jamling Tenzing, we’re placing sustainable bins along the trail to Mt. Everest. The path is one of the most beautiful on earth but has been badly affected by litter. We hope to help make that a thing of the past.

Purely from Plants

Why get from chemicals what you can get from plants? We never use anything artificial, so you’ll only ever find ingredients purely from plants in a can of TENZING.

Responsibly produced

If it’s not good for our planet, it’s not good enough for us. That’s why our cans are BPA free and 100% recyclable. There is still a long way to go to make our whole supply chain sustainable. But we are working hard to make that happen and keep you posted on the process.

5% pledge

The effect of global pollution on our planet is a huge concern. That’s why we have pledged to invest 5% of our profits into environmental projects. It won’t change overnight, but little by little we hope to help.
