Caliwater Adds Two More UNFI Distribution Centers

Wild-Cactus-Water-FrontLos Angeles, CA – August 5, 2015: Caliwater Cactus Water, the original and leading cactus water, has expanded its distribution through UNFI (United Natural Foods Inc.) to two additional distribution centers: Moreno Valley in Southern California and Rocklin in Northern California. Both the 1 liter and the 330 ml will be available.

In March 2015, Caliwater gained distribution through UNFI’s Aurora, Colo. location making it available at Whole Foods Market’s Rocky Mountain Region, which has stores in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Utah and El Paso, Texas. Based on Caliwater’s performance, UNFI has added Caliwater to additional points of distribution. UNFI is the leading retailer of natural and organic foods located throughout North America and the U.K.

“It is very exciting that we are able to increase Caliwater’s reach throughout California with these two new UNFI distribution centers. We are pleased to provide new customers with the chance to taste Caliwater and continue to service our current clients in additional retail locations,” says Matt McKee, co-founder of Caliwater. “This is a marathon, not a sprint and we are managing our expansion methodically.  UNFI has been a huge help in that process.”

Caliwater contains fewer calories and less sugar than all of the leading coconut waters and aloe juices currently on the market. The beverage contains prickly pear cactus, which is the only superfruit that contains all 24 of the rare and potent antioxidants known as betalains, which offer unique beauty benefits for the skin. Additionally, Caliwater delivers five naturally occurring electrolytes, as well as prickly pear cactus extract, which has been shown through clinical trials to relieve the symptoms of a hangover (Tulane Health Sciences Center, Dr. Jeff Wiese, 2004).

Caliwater is available at gourmet/health food stores, and top-tier retailers in the U.S., as well as online at and

Caliwater utilizes the expertise of Ramsey, N.J. based Cascadia Managing Brands to develop and deploy its sales, marketing and distribution strategy.
