Suja Takes Top Spot in Food & Beverage Category on Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Inc. Magazine announced today that Suja Juice Co., category leader in organic, non-GMO and cold-pressured beverages, was named number 13 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Suja Juice’s ranking on the list places them in the prestigious Inc. 500, reserved for the top 10% of brands on the Inc. 5000 list. Suja Juice was also given the distinct honor of being awarded the top company in the highly competitive ‘Food & Beverage’ category.

To qualify for the Inc. 5000, companies must demonstrate a strong percentage revenue growth when comparing data from 2012 to 2015. Suja Juice has earned the title of 13th fastest-growing brand in the Inc. 5000 with an astounding growth rate of 10,511 percent. Since its inception in 2012, San Diego-based Suja Juice has produced nearly 100 million bottles of juice and was the first to offer organic, cold-pressed juice at a $3.99 price point as part of their core ‘Suja’ line. In late 2015, Suja Juice received a minority investment from the Coca-Cola Company, a deal that has allowed the brand to further their mission of democratizing organic juice through increased distribution.

“We at Suja are truly humbled to receive this ranking by Inc. Magazine,” says Jeff Church, CEO and co-founder at Suja Juice. “We have worked continuously over the past four years to make organic accessible to as many consumers as possible, while continuing to push the envelope with new innovations in the health & wellness space. It is truly an honor to be ranked as the fastest-growing in our category and as we gratefully accept this distinction, it only drives us to work that much harder.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000 will be unveiled online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. Magazine. This year’s list is among the most competitive crop in the history of the Inc. 5000.
