It started in 1980, with a commitment to offer consumers quality, fresh, and nutritional aseptic food and beverages at a competitive price. Pat Mitchell, a third-generation family farmer, began California Natural Products on his family property in Northern California.
Shortly after its inception, CNP launched the Ingredient division, where we invented and patented the natural processes for rice milk and rice syrup and rice syrup solids. Today, these ingredients, and many more, are used in the top natural and organic consumer products across the nation
In the mid-1990’s, CNP pioneered the packaging of natural and organic aseptic beverages, eventually earning the broadest portfolio of Tetra Pak offerings in North America. A title we hold to this day.
Today, CNP has developed many of the industry’s iconic best-loved products, which are currently found in nearly every supermarket, convenience store, and health food store across the country.
