The Story Of Bhoomi
Bhoomi Founder, Arpit Bhopalkar
Arpit Bhopalkar grew up in India playing Table-Tennis...
After training sessions, his father would wisely rush Arpit and his brother to the nearest street vendor for a refreshing glass of sugar cane juice. His coaches and doctors recommended sugarcane juice for natural hydration and sustained energy. Arpit went on to become an International Table-Tennis athlete, representing India, and yet to his dismay, when Arpit moved to New Orleans to study and play table tennis for Tulane, there was no sugarcane juice to be found.
That’s when the idea for Bhoomi was born.
Now, we know what you’re thinking. “Sugar water? Really?” But here’s the thing: like Bhoomi people have been pressing the juice from sugarcane for centuries—drinking it straight, or adding natural flavors like lime or ginger. You know how powerful wheatgrass is, right? Well, sugarcane is just another variety of grass. Our elixir contains electrolytes, vitamins, amino acids, and phytonutrients—so it hydrates more effectively than water alone.
Bhoomi reflects the principles of Ayurveda—an ancient, 6,000-year-old form of Indian health science that’s all about balance. To support balanced health, we infuse cane water with Ayurvedic super botanicals to nourish people and our planet. Equally important, we are supporting justice for the minority sugarcane farming community. And we’re doing it all using regenerative resources.
We named our venture “Bhoomi”, which means “Mother Earth” in Sanskrit, because we’re inspired by Ayurvedic wisdom, and re-engaging in a healthy, balanced, back-and-forth between our planet and its people. Join us in a cheers to your health, so we all can get better with Bhoomi.
