Gabby is currently working towards her Masters of Public Health, specializing Social Policy, where she hopes to find a way to help those traditionally missed by our health and wellness systems. She would like to bring her passion for health and wellness to the broader policy sphere by addressing food security, social justice and sustainability.

Why Certified Organic?

Avoid Toxic Pesticides

Many growers use synthetic pesticides to protect their crops from moulds, insects and diseases. These don’t belong in our juice or for that matter in our bodies.

Higher Nutritional Value

Studies suggest in the absence of pesticides and fertilizers, plants boost their production of the phytochemicals (vitamins and antioxidants). Organic to us means offering the most nutrient-rich juice possible.

Avoid GMOs

Safety of GMO foods is unproven and a growing body of research connects these foods with a range of health concerns. The risk of harm is something we can’t stand behind.

Support the Environment

Organic farming reduces pollutants in groundwater and creates richer soil that aids plant growth while reducing erosion.

Certified Organic by Ecocert Canada.

About HPP + UV Filtering

HPP is a cold pasteurization technique where product sealed in a final plastic package is subjected to a high level of isostatic pressure.

UV Filtering is a process where the product is subjected to short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light.

Both HPP and UV filtering processes inactivate microorganisms including the vegetative flora in the juice, thereby extending the shelf life up to 30 days or more.

Why We Never Process

Out with the Bad AND the Good

While these processes inactivate potential bad bacteria in juices, they also inactivate the good bacteria. Bacteria play a critical role in digestion and are needed to support proper nutrition.

Product Compromises

Many products (such as our most alkaline green juices or smoothies) require further recipe alteration to suit these technologies - whether it be in the composition, acidity or texture of the juice. We simply refuse to compromise the quality of our products in favour of shelf life and logistical convenience.

Fake Fresh

All of our packaging is either reusable or compostable. We strive to divert 100% of the waste created by our operations from landfill. We support local organizations making a positive impact on our community.
