SAN DIEGO, Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Forbes magazine announced today that Suja Juice Co., the leader in organic, cold-pressured (otherwise known as HPP High Pressure Processing) juice, was named the number two "Most Promising Company" in America, climbing up a spot from its #3 ranking in 2014. As stated in the Forbes article, "(Suja)…generated some $45 million in 2014 and expects to double that in 2015, selling in 10 national retailers like Whole Foods, Publix, Target and Albertson. The company has raised $30 million in funding from Boulder Brands, Alliance Consumer Growth and others."
Suja is the only company in the history of the Forbes "America's Most Promising Company" list to move up a spot within the top five ranking. In 2014, Suja achieved major milestones including launching into mainstream grocery at a price point under $4 (the first ever for an organic, non-GMO and HPP brand) and extending distribution into mass retailers such as Target, Costco, Publix, Kroger and Safeway.
"Everyone at Suja is truly humbled in receiving this distinguished acknowledgement by Forbes, " says Jeff Church, CEO and co-founder at Suja Juice. "When we received our #3 ranking last year, we knew we had our work cut out for ourselves if we wanted to climb up a spot. Last year we set out to democratize juice for the entire nation and this recognition from Forbes validates that we achieved this lofty goal. As always, we are honored by the opportunity to help people achieve a long, beautiful life."
Coming off of a great year of top-line growth, brand building and capacity expansion, Suja continues to lead the tremendous growth of the HPP organic juice category and is now seeing the same success in the conventional channel as it experienced last year in the natural foods channel. Innovative product launches and new distribution points are among the many brand initiatives planned for 2015 and beyond.
