Evolution Fresh to Expand Availability of Cold-Crafted Juice with State of the Art Juicery in Southern California

Press Release Evolution Fresh - 08/17/2012

Announcement of the facility, which will support 160 U.S. manufacturing jobs, coincides with flavorful new juices arriving in grocery channels today


SEATTLE-- Evolution Fresh today announced plans to open a juicery that will support 160 U.S. manufacturing jobs in Rancho Cucamonga, California later next year. Furthering its commitment to expand the availability of super-premium, cold-crafted juice, the company also announced new flavorful Evolution FreshTM products that will arrive in select stores on the West Coast today.

 


High-Tech Juicery to Quadruple Production and Distribution Capacity

One month following Starbucks commitment to create hundreds of direct and indirect jobs with the construction of a new soluble coffee plant in Augusta, Ga., the company is now announcing plans to open a high-tech juicery that will significantly expand the production and distribution capacity of Evolution FreshTM juices. The juicery, which is expected to be operational in late 2013, will produce Evolution FreshTM juices currently made at its existing juicery in San Bernardino, Ca. All 120 San Bernardino partners (employees) have been offered positions at the new facility, with 40 additional partner positions expected to be created once the Rancho Cucamonga juicery is fully-operational.
"Our new juicery marks an important milestone as we continue to revolutionize the $3.4 billion and growing cold-crafted juice category," said Jeff Hansberry, president, Channel Development. "It will more than quadruple our production and distribution capacity while continuing to deliver the flavor, vitamins, and nutrients of raw fruits and vegetables retained by Evolution Fresh's innovative use of high pressure processing (HPP)."


The $70 million, 260,000 sq. ft. juicery will be capable of peeling, squeezing, cracking and pressing approximately four to five times the amount of juice per year as the current facility using the company's never-heated HPP technology. It will be Starbucks sixth manufacturing site in the U.S., adding to the company's existing network of four roasting plants in Kent, Wash., York, Pa., Sandy Run, S.C., and Carson Valley, Nev. and a soluble coffee plant that is currently under construction in Augusta, Ga.


"During such challenging economic times, it's important for Starbucks to continue to strengthen the U.S. manufacturing sector by investing in new facilities and creating jobs," said Peter Gibbons, executive vice president, Global Supply Chain Operations. "We have long believed that there is a direct link between our success and the vitality of the communities in which we do business. This latest investment, along with the soluble coffee plant we recently broke ground on in Augusta, are good examples of how building high-tech manufacturing facilities in America makes good business sense by aligning our supply chain close to consumer demand while supporting the communities where our customers and partners live and work."

New Evolution FreshTM Bottled Juices in Distribution
Beginning today, Evolution Fresh will add three flavorful juices to its current line-up in select natural food and premium grocery stores across the West Coast. In addition, a new flavor, Raspberry Watermelon, will be available for the first time in these stores as well as Evolution Fresh stores.


 Cucumber Pineapple Ginger - a balance of sweet and spicy, refreshing cucumber and pineapple juices with a hint of ginger

 Pineapple Coconut Water - naturally hydrating, light and refreshing with a touch of pineapple


 Spicy Lemonade - delicious lemonade with a hint of ginger and cayenne for a refreshing kick


 New Raspberry Watermelon - the taste of fresh watermelon complemented with raspberries


Each of these products, which are never heated, demonstrate how Evolution Fresh is continuing to innovate the cold-crafted juice category by bringing customers the vibrancy and convenience of real, pure ingredients while they are on the go. Over time, Evolution Fresh plans to continue to build on its product line-up with additional seasonal and core juices.


"Evolution FreshTM juice is now available to more consumers than ever before, and we are pleased to be introducing new juices to our product line in response to consumer interest in what the brand delivers," said Hansberry. "Customers are looking for convenient, high-quality, and nutritious beverages and foods, and we see an opportunity to harness the intense consumer interest in Evolution FreshTM products coming to market, both in Starbucks retail stores and in select natural food and premium grocery aisles."
