Now On Shelves at all 170+ Locations
Caliwater, the trailblazing creator of the cactus based functional organic beverage, accelerates its 2022 expansion into all Stater Bros. Markets, 170 plus locations, retailing at $2.99. The two popular Caliwater flavors Ginger & Lime and Wild Prickly Pear are now available at the largest privately owned supermarket chain in Southern California; a huge accomplishment for the young company that officially launched less than one year ago.
Known for its presence in Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley, the timing is perfect with the Music & Arts festivals currently underway in that region, and the brand also partnered with Soho House to be served as a featured beverage and mixer at their Soho Desert House pop-up in Indio, CA..
Stater Bros. Markets lives out its values through the charitable efforts of its non-profit arm, Stater Bros. Charities, which aligns with Caliwater’s giveback campaign to No Kid Hungry, where Caliwater will donate 5 cents from every can sold up to a total of $1 million – (http://www.nokidhungry.org). This campaign is one that Caliwater’s founders feel very passionate about, which is focused on ending childhood hunger in the U.S.
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. www.drinkcaliwater.com
” We are so thrilled to be able to continue to bring our cactus water beverage to new customers and areas of California, as Stater Bros. is a California staple. Especially timed to festival season, this launch could not be more perfect. We are passionate to be able continue to expand this important functional beverage’s retail footprint as the wellness landscape continues to evolve in the beverage category.” – Oliver Trevena and Vanessa Hudgens, Co-Founders, Caliwater
