Ingredients

cold off the press uses fresh, organic produce from local farmers through eastern carolina organics and other local portals. for produce not grown in our area (pineapples, oranges, coconuts, etc.), we source from national organic suppliers. our juice is made with the highest quality and freshest produce we can find. In the juice lab, our motto for produce is, "if it wouldn't be appetizing to serve on a plate, it doesn't land in the juice." juicing older, wilted produce yields a dull taste and the juices age noticeably faster.  

 
 

Even though Cold off the Press may not carry all of these ingredients, we did the homework for your benefit and for the future integration into our products.
