One of our core aspirations of sustainability is to improve value for our farmer-partners through direct-sourcing partnerships. By shortening the supply chain, we can assure we bring you the highest quality ingredients while ensuring that the stewards of our land benefit from our business. We’re embarking on a journey to develop a robust Direct Trade coffee sourcing program. In 2018, all of Califia’s Cold Brew Coffee will be sourced directly from farmer-partners in Central and South America, and from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia.
When it comes to our plant milks, we work primarily with one almond grower-processor that is led by a 3rd generation family operation. They use only the most technologically-progressive irrigation practices and manage their own beehives to assure that these important pollinators thrive. More than 80% of the almonds we buy are grown and processed within a 20 mile radius of our bottling facility.
Califia Farms began as a juice company, pressing the bounty of the Cuties Lil’ Zipper tangerines into refreshing quenchers. We were founded with the intention of making good use of blemished, perfectly-imperfect fruit that couldn’t be sold for fresh eating, thereby reducing food waste — a contributor to climate change. Although our product line has since grown to include more than just juices, we remain just as committed as ever to bringing you high quality citrus — packed with sunshine — in a variety of fresh flavor combos.
