Califia Farms is the California better beverage company that put Cuties® in a bottle. Cuties Juice® is fresh from the groves of Califia Farms’ parent company Sun Pacific, a Family-Owned Farming Operation in the San Joaquin Valley. Led by industry veteran Greg Steltenpohl, Califia Farms has changed the game in the dairy industry, introducing a line of Almondmilks in chic, modern carafes reminiscent of classic milk bottles. Califia Farms’ instantly iconic packaging now symbolizes quality, great-tasting alternatives to traditional dairy, translated stylishly and deliciously into their Iced Coffees with Almondmilk. The Company also makes a line of California Citrus Juices in 48-ounce carafes of refreshing Orange Juice, Lemonade, and Lemon-Limeade, and 10.5-ounce bottles of Orange Juice, Lemonade, Limeade and Tangerine Juice, under their Califia Farms label. After receiving verification from the Non-GMO Project, Califia Farms products all proudly boast the Non-GMO Project Verified label.
“The structure of our business allows us to provide premium juices at a significant value over other brands,” said Steltenpohl, noting that their fruit comes straight from the orchard to the company’s state-of-the-art, eco-friendly juice plant. The 100% fresh Cuties Juices and Smoothies are cold-filled and flash-pasteurized in whimsical 8-ounce PET bottles designed for maximum kid appeal, as well as 48-ounce options, providing a significant value for consumers.
“We want parents to have a healthy Super Premium beverage option for their families that they can truly feel good about drinking,” Steltenpohl said. “Our motto is ‘Health is wealth, nature is our source,’ and that’s just what we do: we bottle the goodness of California’s natural bounty.”
Califia Farms Pure Almondmilk line offers something different than its competitors. While typical almondmilks are processed from roasted almonds, Califia Farms’ Pure Almondmilk is made from whole blanched (not roasted) California almonds, resulting in a fresh, vibrant taste with more nutrients. Califia Farms Pure Almondmilk comes in four varieties: Unsweetened, Vanilla, Creamy and a Coconut Almondmilk Blend. Califia Farms Iced Coffee was the first Cold Brewed, soy free/dairy free Ready-to-Drink Iced Coffee to hit the marketplace, and it comes in six delicious flavors: with 48-ounce varities of Mocha, Café Latte, and Double Espresso, and 10.5-ounce options in XX Espresso, Salted Caramel, and Cocoa Noir – all made with Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee.
“Califia Farms is committed to taking care of the earth and its people through the sustainable production of healthy, all-natural beverages, with 100 percent BPA-free recyclable packaging,” said Steltenpohl.
Califia Farms (Califia, pronounced like California) was founded in 2010 to share more of California’s natural bounty. Headed by beverage visionary and Odwalla founder Greg Steltenpohl, the company produces all of its products locally in California. Califia Farms’ plant is eco-friendly, energy efficient, clean-water responsible and repurposes more than 90 percent of its post-production byproduct. The name Califia comes from a Spanish legend, telling of warrior queen Califia who ruled over a kingdom on the mythical island of California. Spanish conquistadors believed they had discovered Califia’s bountiful island when they first explored California.
