About Pacific Natural Foods
With their #NourishEveryBody philosophy, Pacific believes, “success will never be measured in sales or profits. It’s rooted in the lives that we nourish.” Pacific Natural Foods acts on these ideals by providing meals for those in need, supporting the ethical treatment of livestock, adopting environmentally conscientious practices and partnering with like-minded businesses.

Ingredient Sourcing
Pacific sources as many ingredients from local, organic suppliers as possible -- In fact, about half of their ingredients are sourced locally. Since 1997, Pacific has verified the origin of all of their ingredients through their Certified to the Source (CTS) program by relying on trusted suppliers for quality and traceability.

Pacific Natural Foods Barista Specialty DrinkFurthermore Pacific supports transparency in labeling because Pacific believe consumers have a right to know what’s in their food. All Pacific products are verified by the Non-GMO Project. 

Sustainability
Through a variety of means, Pacific is actively working to reduce their carbon footprint. For example, Pacific uses packaging that doesn’t require energy-intensive refrigeration. In the past five years, Pacific has changed the way that they use energy, saving the equivalent of the annual electrical consumption of over 330 homes or the annual greenhouse gas emissions of nearly 500 cars by using:
• Solar panels
• Efficient motors & lighting
• Heat recycling in boilers and efficient HVAC systems
• Optimized set points in cold storage and processor controls
• Fast-acting roll-up doors in cold storage rooms
 

Zero Waste Goal
In the long term, Pacific aspires to be a “Zero Waste” company. Currently, Pacific recycles or repurposes over 85% of their production waste. Wastewater solids and fats are sent to biogas facilities, where they are broken down by microorganisms and combusted to generate electricity. 100% of Pacific’s food scraps are converted into animal feed or compost (literally hundreds of thousands of pounds). Even the animal waste from farms is converted into phosphorus irrigation and compost or transformed into bedding.


Milkadamia Macadamia Nut Milk

Milkadamia Latte Da Moo is moot, with Milkadamia Macadamia Milk. Made with raw cold processed nuts, these creamy dairy alternatives contain all of the natural health benefits found in macadamias:
 Oleic Acid: moisturizing & anti-inflammatory (perfect for dry, sensitive skin types)
 Linoleic Acid: restores the skin’s barrier and keeps skin hydrated
 Palmitoleic Acid: extremely healing and repairing
These unsaturated fatty acids additionally lend Milkadamia a rich taste and texture that pairs well with coffee. Both of the blends offered by BPS are gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, lactose-free, soy-free and carrageenan-free:

• Milkadamia Latte Da Macadamia - Barista Formula: Thickened with yam flour to be less inflammatory and easier to digest, Latte Da does not contain controversial emulsifiers (such as carrageenan) or a laundry list of gums. Use it to create smooth microfoam and stunning latte art without dairy or chemicals additives. Milkadamia Latte Da Sell Sheet & Nutritional Information

• Original Macadamia Nut Milk: Smooth, subtle and rich this blend performs beautifully in cold applications. This product is Non-GMO certified. Milkadamia Original Sell Sheet & Nutritional Information

With just 70 calories per 8 oz. serving both blends contain about half the calories of an 8 oz. serving of whole milk (136 calories).

Milkadamia Jindilli FarmsAbout Milkadamia:
Milkadamia comes to us all the way from Jindilli Farms nestled off the coast of Australia near Byron Bay. “Jindilli” is one of several indigenous words used for macadamia. Situated in the same region where these rainforest trees originated, Jindilli groves receive the ideal balance of rainfall and sunshine to enrich their macadamias with nutrients and flavor. Though Milkadamia alternative milk is relatively new, this 240-acre family-owned farm has been operating and producing a range of products made from macadamia oils and kernels for over 40 years. With such deep roots, Jindilli’s owners believe in sustainability and the necessity of low impact farming.

“At our farms, we are ardently impassioned about regenerative farming. It means we run our farms as naturally as possible using an ever-growing collection of holistic farming techniques that rebuild the soil health.  Helping to restore the amazing biodiversity of the millions of microorganisms living in each tablespoon of our land is the prime objective. Life has become a knowledge quest for creative ways to minimize human intervention and leave the earth do what she knows best – some call it 'low impact, low energy' farming, we like the thought of gentle farming too. Whatever the name, it is such an exciting journey, we are amazed by what we are learning and thrilled to find ourselves a small part of a new wave of farming communities who are bent on creating a more sustainable, abundant future for our planet. To learn more about our free-range trees and how we regeneratively farm, visit our blog post on the Milkadamist.” - Milkadamia

About Califia Farms
Named after Queen Califia, ruler of the bountiful, mythical island of California in Spanish legend, Califia Farms operates out of California striving to be a food and beverage company of the future. With sustainability at the heart of Califia’s values and guiding innovation, they have adopted a whole host of practices and initiatives proving that their business is about much more than just a bottom line.

“The environmental impact of meat and dairy consumption makes it more important than ever to find plant-based solutions for our diets. We endeavor to make plant-based foods that are delicious and easily accessible so that choosing health and caring for the environment is available to everyone and doesn’t mean compromising on taste.” - Califa Farms

Califia Farms Almond TreesIngredient Sourcing:
When it comes to their plant milks, Califia works primarily with one almond grower-processor that is led by a 3rd generation family operation. They use only the most technologically-progressive irrigation practices and manage their own beehives to assure that these important pollinators thrive. More than 80% of the almonds Califia purchases are grown and processed within a 20-mile radius of the Califia Farms bottling facility.

Energy Efficient Facilities
Califia Farms aims to transition to 100% renewable power by 2020 using innovative and creative solutions. Here are just a few:
• Cutting the amount of energy needed to produce one bottle of our Almondmilk by 23% (achieved between 2016 and 2017)
• Installing a massive solar array at their manufacturing plant
• Adding skylights to the packaging area of the plant so they can use natural light when possible
• A boiler economizer to consume less gas during heat generation
• Energy efficient motors with variable frequency drives

Califia Farms Barista Blend Conserving Water
100% of the water leaving Califia’s Bakersfield manufacturing plant is captured and reclaimed by the farmers who grow their almonds just up the road. Over the past year, they have reduced the amount of water required to produce each bottle of Almondmilk by 16% through efficient production planning.

Reducing Waste
Califia diverts over 90% of their production waste (shrink wraps, pallets, cardboard, and paper) from the landfill to recycling. The small amount of organic food waste left over after production is given to local farmers to be repurposed. Califia is currently working to achieve Zero Waste Certification.

Recyclable Packaging
Califia Farms product packaging is recyclable — plastic bottles, cartons, glass, and aluminum bottles. Likewise, the bottle label sleeves and plastic caps are also recyclable.

Initiative
Califia Farms is a founding member of the Plant-Based Foods Association, a trade organization formed with the mission: to ensure a fair and competitive marketplace for businesses selling plant-based foods intended to replace animal products, by promoting policies and practices that improve conditions in the plant-based foods industry, and by educating consumers about the benefits of plant-based foods.

Minor Figures Oat M*lk

Minor Figures | Oat M*lkMinor Figures is an independently owned business, homegrown in the UK. Designed by baristas with many years of experience working in London’s coffee scene, Minor Figures Oat M*lk was formulated for other coffee experts who care about the quality of the drinks they serve.

"Minor Figures celebrates individuality, curiosity and the enthusiastic pursuit of whatever makes you feel good (as represented by our minor figures on the front of the pack)." – Minor Figures

Minor Figures | Oat M*lkAlthough Minor Figures believes that getting foam density just right is a priority, they believe that it is equally important to source incredible raw ingredients – which means no additives, no stabilizers. This means only the truest and simplest flavor ends up in each cup. They believe in consistency – fewer headaches for baristas, and easier workflow. Minor Figures also believes it is important to allow some of the coffee's natural acidity to shine through. With their oat milk, ensure balance, brightness, and coffee character all the way to the bottom of each cup.

"[There's] no point going through all that effort to source well, roast perfectly, and nail the shot - only to mix with other milk and have your coffee taste... well... more or less like everyone else's." – Minor Figures

Features of Minor Figures Oat M*lk:
• Suitable for vegans and those with nut allergies.
• No dairy. No added sugar.
• Contains the same amount of calcium as dairy milk.
• Minor Figures Nutritional Information
