I couldn’t be more proud of the Experience we provide at Kiss the Berry—designed with creativity and passion. Made with love and fuelled by happiness.
Kiss the Berry is a growing family where a healthy and active lifestyle are our priority. We pride ourselves on being THE açaí specialists. Something that makes me truly happy is to sit on the grass outside the Southbank Store and watch the people that come through the door. Food has always united people, it makes people happy and they forget about all their problems… even if just for a moment. Watching a group smile and laugh and be happy while eating a bowl – seeing that joy, brings me happiness. Knowing that I had a small part to play in that is why I do this. It’s why I love what I do.
Not one to follow the path of least resistance and settle for safety and comfort, Sarah set off on the adventure of a lifetime in early 2012 to find what it was that ignited her extraordinary passion. Sarah travelled through the USA and after visiting a beautiful smoothie and açaí bowl cafe in Austin, Texas fell in love with the açaí berry—its potential and array of health benefits.
Inspired by her international açai experience, Kiss the Berry was launched at the Eagle Farm Markets shortly after returning home. It didn’t take long before Kiss the Berry’s success lead to opening Brisbane’s very first açai bar in 2013 and the rest as they say is history.
Every single day Sarah pours her heart and soul into KTB. Through this, Kiss the Berry has become an extension of herself and everything she represents. Sarah has imbedded her own personal values into the fabric of Kiss the Berry – a strong sense of family culture, love, integrity and a commitment to unbridled quality.
Family isn’t defined only by last names or by blood; it’s defined by commitment and by love. It means showing up when they need it most. It means having each other’s backs. It means choosing to love each other even on those days when you struggle to like each other. It means never giving up on each other.’
At Kiss the Berry family is everything - our amazing customers are family, our awesome suppliers are family, our beloved team members are family, our diverse community is family. Food brings people together, it always has, it’s why we do what we do. It’s not only about the products we offer; it’s the reason why we’re out there every single day getting involved, getting to know people, supporting the community, it’s about the bigger picture – to initiate change and be a part of something.
If you can wake up every morning loving what you do, helping and inspiring others around you to be better than they were yesterday then you know you’re doing something right. In business and in life.’
At Kiss the Berry we really love what we do. And we really want you to love what you do and who you do it with. Because it shows. We constantly strive to add that ‘Loving Feeling’ into every aspect of the Kiss the Berry.
Act in such a way that if someone spoke badly of you, no one would believe it. Integrity is pivotal in every aspect of life. At Kiss the Berry integrity is not an expectation it’s an obligation. In regards to the business we’re not only talking about integrity with how you deal with people (obviously still of the utmost importance) but we respect the integrity of our products and ingredients.
Food should be more than just filling; it should have purpose. We love and treat our ingredients with integrity. Furthermore, here at Kiss the Berry we hand select our suppliers who value integrity above all else. Our bowls and smoothies are made from local and imported ingredients, we try to buy our ingredients locally where possible. We source the highest quality, always. We don't believe in counting calories, we care about packing our bowls & smoothies full of nutrients and flavour. Our products are more than just healthy, they are whole foods that are nutritious and makes us happy.
Real ingredients taste better. At Kiss the Berry we’re all about simple, fresh produce without artificial flavours or additives. Just genuine fresh ingredients and their individual, delicious flavours. We source from local suppliers rather than factories, and spend a lot more on our ingredients than any of our competitors. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
