Caliwater‌ ‌Cactus-Based‌ ‌Functional‌ ‌Beverage‌ ‌By‌ ‌Founders‌ ‌ Oliver‌ ‌Trevena‌ ‌And‌ ‌Vanessa‌ ‌Hudgens‌ ‌Expands‌ ‌To‌ ‌The‌ ‌EAST‌ ‌COAST‌

Village is the second-largest member of Wakefern Food Corporation, the nation’s largest retailer-owned food cooperative and owner of the ShopRite, Fairway and Gourmet Garage banners. These established banners in retail support the continued expansion of the category-leading cactus water brand, Caliwater. Caliwater will be sold at $2.99 per can.

Having launched in Spring of 2021 to much anticipation and positive reception, Caliwater is defined by a drive to create innovative, fresh functional beverages that connect us to the Earth and to one another. Inspired by the lush and varied landscapes of California, Founders Oliver Trevena (Actor/Host/Entrepreneur) and native Californian Vanessa Hudgens (Actress/Music Artist/Influencer/Entrepreneur) looked to their own desert regions to locally source Prickly Pear cactus fruit, known for its rare and potent healthful properties. Their vision – to sip on Cali in a can. Their key ingredient Prickly Pear is brought to life in beverage form in their quickly growing canned cactus water product, which is not only delicious and organic, but super hydrating and refreshing, and of course, filled with rare antioxidants and digestion benefits.

“We are so excited to expand to the East Coast, with one of the country’s top respected retail entities. We are so thrilled to be able to continue to bring our cactus water beverage to new customers and clientele, a beverage that will truly benefit their daily lifestyle and diet with all of its health benefits and delicious, hydrating flavor. We appreciate Village Supermarkets sharing in our vision of this important functional beverage as the wellness landscape continues to evolve in the beverage category.” – Oliver Trevena and Vanessa Hudgens, co-founders, Caliwater
