A Pure Juice Product

No added sugar.  100% Organic Fruit and Vegetable Juice

Organic produce is the cornerstone of our business. Planet Kid Juice is made from 100% organic GMO-free fruits and vegetables, 100% of the time.

Purple grape juice is a naturally good source of Vitamin C, Manganese, minerals, as well as flavonoids (quercetin, myricetin and anthocyanins). Added to that, folic acid, potassium, vitamin A, D, and E, important for bone, eye, and skin health. What’s more, one 6-ounce glass contains more calcium then a glass of milk.

Grape juice is bursting with flavonoids.

Flavonoids are phenolic compounds that are widespread in commonly consumed fruits and vegetables such as apples and onions and beverages derived from plants like tea. Thousands of flavonoids are distributed throughout the plant world and many have antioxidant functions. Recent research reports a range of health-beneficial effects from antioxidants in the diet.

Due to the protection they confer against oxidative damage caused by free radicals and general physiological activities, they may play a significant role in preventing diseases such as cancer, and cardiovascular and neurological diseases. For example, evidence from a study in Holland has indicated that people with a measurably higher flavonoid intake have a reduced risk of heart disease compared to those who consume less.

#2s are Tops with Us

Because of the massive level of food waste that occurs worldwide, with each day tons of perfectly good food is thrown out for no good reason, Planet Kid Juice will source much of our fruit and vegetable supply for our juices from #2 fruit – that is the too-small or misshapen organic fruit that is tossed out because it’s not pretty enough to sit in the produce aisle of a supermarket.  That’s just ridiculous. As long as it’s fresh, ripe, organic and non-GMO, it’s just perfect for us no matter the shape or size.  This is not a Miss America pageant. For us, it’s about healthy juice, healthy kids and a healthy planet.

Healthy Kids = Job #1

There are a lot of kid-targeted juice products out there…but none of them have it completely right.  Today, more than ever, news is coming out about juice drinks being deceptive.

With the focus on childhood obesity, and juice’s contribution to that problem, no juice brand has yet to arise that successfully addresses the current and future challenges to children with regard to their complete health.

Planet Kid Juice is problem-solver of all juices … no added sugar, great taste, tons of vitamins, 100% organic purity, non-GMO.

Food Safety…From Our Kitchen to Yours

At Planet Kid Juice, nothing is more important to us than the safety and quality of our juice. We are constantly mindful that millions of people will trust us each day to provide safe, wholesome juice to their families.

We follow rigorous food safety practices and take part in state-of-the-art training programs, and we are committed to providing safe juice for every family.

Because of the rigor that we apply to this process, Planet Kid Juice’s goal is to grow as a recognized leader in food safety.

Additionally, Planet Kid Juice demonstrates a strong culture of sharing with both competitors and government agencies, in an open-source manner, scientific data learned about the safe manufacture of fruit and vegetable juice.

Our Food Safety Practices

Our juice is very personal to us. We drink the juice we make and serve it to our families as well. In addition to training employees, we regularly involve external experts to provide guidance to our quality and safety programs and speak to employees about new food safety practices.

But the work in food safety doesn’t stop there. We continually invest in infrastructure improvements enterprise-wide to streamline and update our facilities with new tools, technology and designs that are a vital part of ensuring safe, wholesome food.

With our customers and our own families in mind, we take food safety seriously every step of the way — from sourcing safe ingredients, to implementing appropriate shipping and storage.

We have an extensive juice quality checks and balances process with additional internal and external audits as well as an internal Food Safety and Quality team that monitors and audits the safety and quality of our juice.

Additionally, we’ve established a Food Safety Advisory Council composed of leading independent experts to help guide our ongoing work with government agencies, research institutions and scientists in the areas of juice production and testing.

To learn more about other topics that are important to us, such as BPA, GMOs, treatment of animals, gluten-free foods, etc., we continually update the FAQ section of our website.

Processing & Bottling

To avoid contamination by harmful bacteria that can cause serious illness in children, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems Planet Kid Juice utilizes state-of-the-art pasteurization methods.

Planet Kid Juice is bottled in BPA-free plastic. The type of plastic we will use for our bottles is HDPE #2, which can be reprocessed into many items, and has a strong, worldwide market. Recycling post-consumer HDPE plastic to make new products is, of course, preferable to making products from raw resources, saving landfill space, energy, water, resources, and reducing pollution.

Planet Kid Juice promotes the consumption of living, high-frequency fruit and vegetable juice, and therefore we mindfully press, bottle and sell a truly organic and minimally pasteurized product.

Nobody makes purer juices or better blends than Planet Kid Juice. We plan to grow some of our juicing fruit and vegetables right here on the Learning Farm garden and orchards, and source other ingredients from only reputable organic suppliers.

Every single Planet Kid Juice variety has its own Farm to Bottle story. Our labels tell our customers where our produce is grown, how the juice is made, and what happens once it leaves the farm. Why? Because it’s good to know where your food comes from!  And fun to know that kids had a part in making it!

Distribution

Keeping It Fresh from Farm to Store

We know that delivering a perishable product isn’t easy. In order be certain our products get to market fast and stay properly stocked and pulled, we build our own distribution system in key markets. This extensive program includes Planet Kid Juice trucks manned by attentive route-sales people, supported by sales managers, merchandisers and demo staff. The Planet Kid Juice Distribution team is charged with ensuring our fresh fruit juices maintain the highest quality at every step of their journey from local organic farms to the point of purchase.

Consistent temperatures and efficient delivery are central to maintaining freshness and shelf life. Planet Kid Juice sales people are our ambassadors. They are in stores on a daily basis making sure our products are fully stocked and faced, and developing strong, long-term relationships with our customers. Because we distribute only our own products, they will be able to stay focused and knowledgeable.

International distribution is planned to launch soon on Planet Kid Juice farms in other target countries in Africa, Europe, Asia and Central and South America.

Thank you for choosing us to help meet your need for nutritious and fun fruit and veggie juice deliciousness.
