Why is Cold-Pressed Juice Expensive?

Article in HuffPost: Why Your Cold-Pressed Juice Is So Expensive. By Alison Spiegel

Reasons our products cost more than our competitors:

  • We are 95 to 100% organic which adds 40% to 200% to our ingredient cost (avg. increase is around 96%)
  • We batch process i.e. we do not blend juices after processing
  • We are committed to glass packaging which costs more than plastic – this reflects our strong commitment to reducing waste, saving our oceans and protecting our land resources
  • We pay a living wage to our employees in lieu of a minimum wage
  • We bottle immediately after processing which limits our shelf life to 72 hours – other processors store juice in a manner that allows them to sell juice that is up to 7 days old
  • We are the only licensed bottler of Juice in Rhode Island – maintaining this license and the ability to put a lid on our juices protects and boosts our customer’s health
  • We have a significant investment in top quality cold-press processing equipment that allows us to produce our products with minimal degradation to fragile vitamins and beneficial phyto-nutrients – this allows us to put from 2 to 4 lbs. of fresh, organic produce in each 16 oz. jar – that is double to triple the ingredients in a 16 oz. serving of a juice produced in a centrifugal juicer or a single auger masticating juicer
  • We do not load our products with the cheapest ingredients – we load them with the healthiest ingredients which are almost always the most expensive ingredients
  • In addition to our packaging being environmentally supportive, we produce less waste than traditional juice which is good for everyone – we also compost 100% of our food waste
  • It requires a magic, crystal ball to determine what juices and other products to make on a thrice-weekly basis – give that our products are highly perishable if they are not sold within their “best by” date they need to be thrown out
  •  
    Appearances can be deceiving.
    When buying juice be sure to compare apples to apples! And investing in your future health requires a bit of faith – the smart choice is to invest now to protect your health, kind of like contributing to a 401k to protect your future.
