All of our juices are VEGAN. Obviously the fruits themselves are vegan, but they’re also processed and filtered with none of the animal derivative filters that are sometimes used in other food processing. Also, our natural flavours are completely plant-derived from the named fruits on the given package and are verified organic and non-GMO.
All Kiju Organic juices are GLUTEN-FREE. We ensure that ALL ingredients we source are gluten-free, and that all of our suppliers have a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) program in place and are HACCP certified. This ensures that all Kiju Organic juices are of the highest quality and gluten free.
We make every effort to buy as local as we can, but the majority of our fruit comes from organic farms all over North and South America. We would love to have plenty of mango and lemon trees growing in our backyard here in Ontario, Canada, but unfortunately we don’t have the right climate. Moreover, of the products that do grow locally, there is just not enough certified organic supply available at this time to support a year-round, national program.
Of course, it’s important to note that the processing of our juice into the finished product you see on shelf is all done here in CANADA – as is all of our marketing, sales and distribution!
