who we are

kencko is a Smart Food company helping
health-conscious consumers
effortlessly and affordably
eat healthier.

Imagine if getting 2-3 servings of fruits and vegetables was as easy as tear, mix, and drink. The instant convenience of a smart, organic drink that’s perfect for travel, the office, and even the kids.

Eating 100% pure produce doesn’t have to be time consuming or inconvenient. That’s why we reinvented the wheel to bring you the 1st smart drink pack with zero chemicals. The added bonus? It tastes fantastic.

the origin

kencko literally means healthy in Japanese. We chose to develop an identity where the “k” is inspired by its corresponding Japanese character.

kencko is different

Other “health juices” out there claim to be as pure as the source, but here’s the dirty truth: artificial flavors are added, chemicals only a chemist can pronounce are mixed in, and by the time the drink touches your lips, there’s only a shell of what used to be real fruits and veggies.

We believe there’s a better way. That’s why we developed kencko, the 100% natural, USDA organic way to get your fruits & veggies. That’s all it is – pure fruits and vegetables. Nothing added. Nothing taken away. Every sip is like biting into fresh fruit from the vine.

created out of a common problem

When I was diagnosed with acute gastritis, doctors told me I’d have to take pills for the rest of my life. I decided to change my eating habits before giving up to a lifetime of medicine – and I cured myself by switching to a 90% plant-based diet. I searched for a convenient way to carry fresh, plant-based foods with me at all times, but I couldn’t find a solution. So I decided to create my own.

Welcome to kencko,

carry kencko with you wherever you go, whenever you want.
