We believe in using business as a force for good. For every bottle sold, we donate 5¢ to support local schools, teachers and students in rural Latin America and the Caribbean. Our team works directly with school administrators and teachers to determine the best uses for these funds.
Since 2016, we have invested in training, supplies and basic infrastructure. The fund is managed by Just Made, so 100% of the money goes toward empowering our farming communities and their families.

Escuela 4 de Noviembre
- Liguiqui, Ecuador (near Manta, Ecuador)
- Fewer than 40 students.
We funded English classes for students from the area. The classes were taught by a former Cirque du Soleil performer who was extremely entertaining and engaging. He juggled different color balls to teach colors, performed magic tricks, and other interactive games while at the same time teaching English to students.
Colegio Cristo Rey
- San Marcos, Nicaragua (near Managua)
- 200 students from 1st– 12th grade
We purchased 12 desktop computers and software to update the computer lab for their high school-age students. In addition, we paid for the instructor to attend a week-long computer skills course in Managua so that she could apply those skills in the classroom.
Escuela Rafael Ramirez
- Near San Luis Potosi, Mexico
- 80 students from 1st-8thgrade
The school’s director told us her biggest need, surprisingly, was functioning bathrooms. In her words, “Do you know how hard it is to tell a 3rd grader to just ‘hold it’, and expect them to learn anything?” We brought running water to the school, repaired the bathrooms, and repaired broken windows and light fixtures in the school buildings.

I have spent my entire life watching my family work tirelessly in the fields. We come from a long line of dedicated farmers and it's a way of life that we cherish and take great pride in.
As a kid, I helped my dad milk the cattle and it was the first time that I milked a cow by myself!

Every morning, one of my favorite moments in the field is watching the sunrise through the lime trees - a lovely spectacle gifted by nature.

One of my favorite memories is from a rainy night at the ranch. The next morning, as we arrived, the truck got stuck. One of my coworkers went down to push it, but the tire filled with mud and it became a hilarious situation. Although it was initially stressful, we all laughed and had a great time.
Before we can create a recipe for nutritious and flavorful juices, we use the recipe for growing the very best fruits and vegetables.
The most important ingredients for that are: naturally rich soil, the perfect climate, and a wealth of knowledge and experience handed down through generations of farming families around the world.
