What We Do

Kauai Juice Co. is a constantly expanding and changing business on the island of Kauai. The company was founded on the principle that healthy options that taste great should be easily accessible and support a strong, local economy and agriculture sector at the same time.  A healthy community relies on a direct food system. It’s simple. By directly supporting the people who feed us - our local farmers - we support local families, keep money local and reduce carbon emissions.

By using glass containers, which we buy back from our customers to sanitize and reuse, we create a smaller carbon footprint. In 2019, we reused more than 300,000 bottles. That’s a huge impact on our little island. We believe in sustainability over profits. It actually costs the company twice as much to buy back and reuse our bottles instead of just recycling them and buying new ones.

Our retail stores are more than a place to buy juice. They’re a hub to educate the public about nutrition, health and sustainable practices. We offer fresh cold pressed juice, nut milks and elixirs in our stores daily. We also offer a large selection of kombucha, hot sauces, food options, merchandise and products from vendors who have our stamp of approval within our stores, located in Kilauea, Kapaa and Poipu. 

Through this website we ship hot sauces, merchandise and select elixirs all over the country. This website also often serves as a contact point for businesses around the state of Hawaii that sell our kombucha. 

At Kauai Juice Co. we do everything we can to work with our neighbors from inspiring sustainable practices to supporting local agriculture, and everything in-between. Our passion is to help our little island Ohana and our friends around the world be the best that they can be.
