JUST A TASTE OF SOME OF THE BEVERAGE BRANDS
WE PROUDLY SUPPLY TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS.
BOYLAN BOTTLING COMPNAY
The Boylan Bottling Company has been making sodas in small batches since 1891. They weren’t the only ones making sodas back then, but unlike many of the mega brands conceived in that same era, Boylan has remained true to its roots and committed to producing only authentic, hand-crafted soda.
Boylan hand-crafted sodas stand on their own and speak for themselves – no hype, no marketing gimmicks. While their sodas may cost more per ounce than the big soda pop brands, all of that cost is in the product…not paying for slick ad campaigns and celebrity spokespeople. They have learned that the best way to sell soda is simply to be the best, and the accolades and awards they’ve received tell everyone that they’re doing a pretty good job.
Califia Farms (pronounced like California), is the better beverage company that squeezes and presses fruits and nuts from the orchards of the San Joaquin Valley to bring you beautifully bottled goodness – all proudly boasting the Non-GMO Project Verified Label.
Califia Farms’ iconic packaging now symbolizes quality, great-tasting alternatives to traditional dairy, translated stylishly and deliciously into their Iced Coffees with Almond Milk. The CalifiaCitrus Juices come in 48-ounce carafes of refreshing Orange Juice, Lemonade, and Lemon-Limeade.

The bottle is petroleum-free, BPA-free and can be composted, recycled or reused. Whenever possible, the company sources water from within 500 miles of each market. It vapor-distills and adds minerals to the water.
Despite living in a city focused on great tasting food and healthy living, San Francisco’s Kara Goldin was amazed that she couldn’t find a delicious and refreshing drink for herselfand her family - not one that didn’t have any diet sweeteners, sugars or other “functional” stuff added to it, anyway.
So, since plain water didn’t always quench that thirst for tasty refreshment, Kara created hint…The idea behind hint is simple: Purified water + a splash of natural flavor.
- NO sugar
- NO diet sweeteners
- NO preservatives, additives or anything else that you can’t pronounce
By taking nature’s original refreshment as the main ingredient and enhancing it with just a splash of delicious natural flavor, hint is a refreshing alternative to sodas, juices and other sweetened drinks without the empty calories or diet sweeteners. As one of the fastest growing beverages in the US, our drinkers now have a water that makes their mouths water.
Seth Goldman, co-founder of Honest Tea, drank a lot of liquids. An active person, Seth was continually in search of the perfect drink to quench his thirst after a run, a game of basketball or between grad school classes. Yet, Seth found most drinks either too sweet or too tasteless.
Barry Nalebuff, Seth's professor at the Yale School of Management,found that he and Seth shared a passion for the idea of a less sweet, but flavorful beverage during a class discussion of a Coke vs. Pepsi case study. They agreed that there were tons of sugary sweet options and lots of watery drinks, but in 1994, there was nothing in between to fill the void.
Fast forward to '97. Seth goes for a run in New York City with college friend who used to concoct juice drinks with him after class. As they found themselves doing the same beverage mixing after the run, Seth knew then that if he was going to quench his thirst for good, he would have to create the drink himself. He e-mailed Barry to see if he was still excited about the idea.
Timing was everything. Barry had just returned from India where he had been analyzing the tea industry for a case study. Among other things, he learned that most of the tea American companies purchased for bottling was the lower quality dust and fannings left after quality tea had been produced. Barry had even come up with a name to describe a bottled tea that was made with real tea leaves-Honest Tea.
When Seth heard the name, the simmering idea began to boil-it was the perfect name for an all-natural brand that would strive tocreate healthy and honest relationships with its customers, suppliers and the environment.Seth took a deep breath, quit his job at Calvert mutual funds, and started brewing batches of tea in his kitchen.
Five weeks after taking the plunge, he brought thermoses of tea and a recycled bottle with a mock-up label to Fresh Fields (Whole Foods Markets). The buyer ordered 15,000 bottles, and Seth and Barry were in business-if they could figure out how to make that much tea. They did, and they are still at it 15 years later.
