Chuice comes to metro Atlanta Whole Foods

(ATLANTA BUSINESS CHRONICLE) -- Atlanta-based Chuice, maker of blends of bottled, plant-based foods landed Whole Foods Market as its newest retailer in Atlanta.

The beverage is now available at Whole Foods in Buckhead and Midtown, and is slated for distribution to all eight metro Atlanta stores by November.

Dr. Sujit Sharma, a practicing emergency room pediatrician at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, is the CEO for the startup.

"This is an opportunity to be part fo a solution-oriented approach to disease prevention," Sharma said in a statement. "Chuice is far more than just juice, containing high quantities of nutrient dense fiber missing in almost all drinkable refreshments on the market. Nuts and seeds in Chuice also provide high quality protein, as well as healthy fats, that are also missing from most juices. The result is a complete meal."

Chuice was created by Taste of Earth LLC founder and personal trainer Ladell Hill.
