Our difference is found at first sip. We design recipes around taste and function first, not price. We go far beyond our peers in procuring the highest grade ingredients from the best suppliers we can find worldwide. Just as importantly, we never denature our beverages with cheap preservatives or heat pasteurization. Our mission is to deliver the highest quality juice products achievable to your door and to the independent, community retailers who make our neighborhoods great. We say that juice is best when served raw and in its most natural state - this is our RAW ethos.
We don't use the term "locally sourced" because we purchase the best ingredients around the globe. Over the years, we've gotten acquainted with the top purveyors of produce and specialty ingredients in existence and have developed our own protocol for making the best purchasing decisions possible. We go beyond the Organic certificate; we look at HAACP plans, read lab reports, ask for spec analysis, require Kosher certification, talk to the growers directly, and always verify processing techniques (if any) to guarantee that the product we buy is raw.
WHAT IS COLD-PRESSED?
Not to be confused with "cold-pressured," the term cold-pressed refers to the method of how the juice was extracted. A true cold-pressed juice was slowly squeezed sans the use of high RPM blades or parts. In other words, it is never subjected to a significant increase in heat or aeration. Cold-pressing is the slowest, coldest, most delicate method of extraction that has ever or will ever exist. Many juice companies start out by cold-pressing the old fashioned way but oftentimes transition into less savory methods due to the extra time it takes to properly press the pulp. Cold-pressing is the best possible way to maintain the natural integrity of the juice and we will continue to employ this method of extraction as long as we exist.
IN THE COMMUNITY
We have made it our mission to focus on the independent retailers who make our neighborhoods great. We stay away from big corporate grocery chains for many reasons, but mainly because we cherish the independent retailers who do things with a little more love. In the cities that we conduct our business, we offer our own direct distribution so that we may offer an improved service and connection to our trading partners. This also results in a more diverse range of products at a lower cost to the final drinker. Raw Juicery started from very humble beginnings and will continue focusing on the neighborhoods that appreciate what we do.
