Suja Juice Co. was named third among Forbes Magazine’s 2014 list of America’s Top 100 Most Promising Companies. Suja was also the only consumer packaged goods company within the top 25. The privately held and less than two-year-old certified organic and non-GMO verified cold-pressured juice brand was recognized by Forbes for its substantial growth and success. Forbes announced the top 25 ranked America’s Most Promising Companies list, which includes high-growth, privately held companies with under $250 million in annual revenue. The complete list of 100 companies will be released in the February 10, 2014 issue of the magazine.
Leading the announcement of the Top 25 ranked America’s Most Promising Companies of 2014 on Forbes.com, reporter J.J. Colao explains the reasoning for Suja Juice Co.’s high ranking, “Today Suja, No. 3 on our Most Promising list, is one of the fastest growing consumer product companies in the country, poised to do $50 million in sales in just its second full year of business.”
The secret to Suja’s skyrocketing success in such a short time can be accredited to a diverse team of co-founders who each brought something special to the business when they created the company in May 2012, in addition to the exceptional quality of the juices and smoothies that deliver conscious nutrition and amazing flavor in each sip. What started as a small home-delivery juice service based out of co-founder Eric Ethan and Annie Lawless’s home kitchens, has now grown into a multimillion-dollar national company with the help of co-founders Jeff Church and James Brennan.
Suja Juice Co. now offers three unique lines, including Suja Classic, which is sold at Whole Foods Markets and select natural food stores nationwide, Suja Elements, a smoothie-based line exclusive to Whole Foods Market, and Suja Essentials, which will soon be available in larger grocery store chains such as Safeway and Kroger.
“It is a great honor to be included on the Forbes list of America’s Most Promising Companies of 2014, let alone among the top three companies in the nation,” says Suja co-founder and CEO Jeff Church. “I speak for all of the founders when I say we are humbled by this recognition, and it motivates us to continue our commitment to changing the way America juices.”
The Organic Hazelnut Oil will reach the market in February for a suggested retail price of $12.99 for a 3.38 fluid ounce bottle.
