The Vivi Kola Team

A growing & passionate team that lives and breaths all things Vivi Kola!

Christian Forrer

Founder & CEO

Christian Forrer is the founder and owner of Vivi Kola and its sister company ViCAFE. As he says of himself, the companies are like his children. He built the two companies from scratch with a lot of passion and commitment. As a trained graphic designer, he has an eye for aesthetics and this is reflected in both companies. His heart also beats for adventurous expeditions. Especially the multifaceted Africa fascinates him a lot. On his trips he usually only spends the night in a tent in the wild. He gained the essential knowledge for this through a ranger training in Africa.

Camilo Antezana is the managing director of Vivi Kola AG. He belongs to the old guard and has experienced the revival firsthand. As a young boy, he had his first experience in his grandfather's wine bottling plant. In his sleep, he would talk aloud about fine grape juices. As if he had already known then that he would build up the Vivi Manufactory at a later date. Rumor has it that he still talks in his sleep today - this time about fine Vivi Kola.

There is probably no area that Kaj does not know. Besides work, he can be found on the soccer field. As a referee, he has been sprinting across the field for almost 15 years. A special talent are his backflips. At every Christmas party these are a highlight and almost a tradition.

Operator Production
Sergio is the newest member of our Vivi Manufaktur. Originally from Colombia, he found his way to Switzerland via London. Diligently learning German, he picks up every expression in Swiss German and delivers them at the best moments. Sergio is always full of energy and gets annoyed at every loss of efficiency. If you don't see him running through the production, you know something is wrong.

Operator Production
Said has settled in very well in the Vivi Manufaktur team in Eglisau and can live out his enthusiasm for technical work and colossal machines in the filling plant. He doesn't mince his words and always brightens up the team. He is already working diligently on a remix of the Vivi Kola Samba. Stay tuned!

Marcus Berger

Design lead
E-Mail: mberger@forlam.ch

Born in Namibia, raised in Cape Town, landed in Zurich as a graphic designer at Vivi Kola. No wonder Marcus switches from German to English and back three times per sentence. He likes Japanese whisky, good design and sports with a high adrenaline level. As a surfer, he is "a pretty chilled guy," he says. Marcus likes good food and culinary experiments, but he doesn't like to be talked into his beloved "braai" aka BBQ.

Edon Alidemaj

Logistics
Growing up in France, Edon trained as a chauffeur for all possible vehicle categories. His great love has brought him to Switzerland and now he maneuvers the huge Vivi Kola truck through the narrowest alleys. His flair for vehicles of all sizes is immediately noticeable. You could almost say - gasoline flows through his veins.

Aaron Fee

Photography & Video Production
E-Mail: afee@forlam.ch

The roots of our photographer and videomaker Aaron Fee are anchored in the pulsating metropolis of San Francisco. The idyllic city of Lucerne, where he now lives, is almost like a small village.

Among other things, Cécile is responsible for the orders at Vivi Kola. Her grandfather was already a lorry driver at the former mineral spring in Eglisau and delivered Vivi Kola all over Switzerland.
