Our creamers tend to be on the thicker side, but they shouldn’t have the consistency you’ve described, says califiafarms in response. In order to find out more and replace your purchase, a member of our customer care staff will contact you through email.
Does Califia almond milk require cooling down?
There was no foil seal hidden beneath the smaller lid on my brand-new Creamer bottle. Is using it safe?
The smaller caps have a tamper-evident plastic ring and an interior plug-like closure. To guarantee product safety, the tiny plastic fasteners along the edge of the cap should fracture when opened. Although physically distinct, both of our caps offer a complete seal and retain the integrity of the product.
There was no foil seal underneath, and the lid on my new bottle is a little different. Is using it safe?
Compared to the bottles produced at our West Coast location, this alternate cap design uses a different safety seal function. It has a smaller internal cap with a plug-like safety seal and a plastic ring that makes tampering obvious. To guarantee product safety, the tiny plastic fasteners along the inside edge of the cap should fracture when opened. Although physically distinct, both of our caps offer a complete seal and retain the integrity of the product.
Our items must be consumed within ten days of opening them as well as before they expire.
Our bottled goods (plant milks, creamers, cold brew coffees, juices, and some seasonals) must always be kept in the refrigerator because they are perishable.
The Better Half, selected Creamers, Barista Blends, and select Concentrated Cold Brew goods that come in cartons, on the other hand, are shelf-stable and can be kept at room temperature before being consumed.
Always read the label directions twice. Please store all of our items in the refrigerator after opening and use them within 10 days.
We think the impact of our company is much greater than the volume of bottles we sell. Sustainability is at the core of our principles and serves as the compass for our plant-powered innovation as we strive to create the food and beverage company of the future. Finding plant-based diet alternatives is now more vital than ever because of the negative effects that eating meat and dairy has on the environment. To ensure that everyone may choose health and environmental responsibility without sacrificing flavor, we work to produce delicious, readily available plant-based foods.
Since the beginning, sustainability has been a fundamental principle for us, so we’re incredibly thrilled to announce that we’re starting a number of projects to reduce our environmental impact. We’re putting together a comprehensive program that will also include new channels for communicating our objectives and advancements. This program will cover everything from enhancing our packaging materials to utilizing renewable energy, recycling our process water to supporting local agriculture, and establishing Direct Trade relationships. We cordially invite you to accompany us on our quest towards a future powered entirely by plants.
All chilled goods sold on our online store are delivered to customers in foam-free packaging as an alternative to styrofoam. All of our corrugated shipping boxes contain an estimated 75% recycled material. We are currently exploring ways to include recycled materials into our packaging in order to further lessen the impact of our packaging on the environment.
Improved value for our farmer partners through direct sourcing agreements is one of our main sustainability goals. We can guarantee that we deliver you the highest-quality ingredients while guaranteeing that the land stewards profit from our business by reducing the length of the supply chain. Our extensive Direct Trade coffee sourcing program was just finished. Beginning in 2018, Califia will only use 100% Arabica beans that have been grown by its farmer partners in Central and South America and East Africa.
We collaborate largely with a single grower-processor that is run by a third generation family business when it comes to the almonds utilized in our products. They only employ the most cutting-edge irrigation techniques, and they take care of their own beehives to ensure the success of these crucial pollinators. A 20-mile radius around our bottling factory is where more than 80% of the almonds we purchase are farmed and processed.
By 2020, we want to switch to only renewable energy. To get there, we’re coming up with creative ways to use less energy while also increasing the amount of renewable energy we produce. Between 2016 and 2017, we were able to reduce the energy required to make one bottle of our almondmilk by 23%. The power of the California sun will then be harnessed at our production facility by installing a sizable solar array. Additionally, we are in the midst of an annual energy efficiency study that will direct future advancements.
We deploy cutting-edge technologies across our energy-efficient distribution center to reduce our carbon footprint:
- sixteen insulated walls Eight independently operating condenser units that turn on in response to temperature signals from a multi-zone network of temperature sensors.
- motors that use little energy and have variable frequency drives.
- a boiler economizer to reduce the amount of gas used to generate heat.
- Skylights in the packaging section of our facility allow us to turn off the bulk of the general lighting on sunny days, and motion sensors ensure that the lights turn off automatically when no one is using them.
Everyone is aware that water is a limited resource, particularly in California, where we all live.
- We work nearly exclusively with almond farmers who only employ cutting-edge watering techniques that are highly effective.
- In our manufacturing, the farmers who harvest our almonds nearby now absorb and reuse 100% of the water exiting our Bakersfield factory.
- Through effective production scheduling, we were able to cut the quantity of water used to make each bottle of our almondmilk by 16% over the past year.
