Coming in hot this season, Califia Farms is slated to triple its production capacity for its 90 SKUs because consumers just can’t get enough! The company made room for its soaring demand by expanding its Bakersfield plant to bring on two production lines in the new 100-thousand-square-feet, state-of-the-art facility.
“Demand for our great-tasting, premium plant-based beverages has grown significantly year-over-year – not only here in the US, but in several key international markets as well, including the U.K., Canada and Australia. In order to meet the continued and growing demand for the 90+ SKUs we produce at our Bakersfield plant, we’ve invested significantly in two new state-of-the-art production lines and have tripled our capacity,” said Greg Steltenpohl, CEO of Califia Farms.
Now, Califia has the capability to produce 400 bottles a minute, making its award-winning, lower-sugar, plant-based beverages available to reach millions relying on nut milks and ethically-sourced cold brew coffees. This clean-labeled brand has grown quickly since its 2010 inception, and because consumers just can’t get enough of the goods delivered, the plant’s re-tooled plant is able to meet its growing audience in Canada, the UK, and Australia.
Not only will the re-tooled plant keep up with demands, but it also aims to expand the capacity of the company’s proprietary production processes, including production of its almond milks and non-dairy creamers. The expanded plant will allow the company the necessary workspace after reporting dollar sales CAGR of 161% from 2013 to 2016 in a recent press release.
How will the increased size of the company’s Bakersfield plant help the company’s sales continue to climb the ranks? Deli Market News will continue to report.
