ASEPTIC PLANT-BASED BEVERAGES
For over 30 years, SunOpta has been a leader in plant-based beverages. We are passionate about bringing plant-based beverages to more consumers and are continually innovating with new plant bases. We pride ourselves on customization and collaboration and are ready to package any offering in your own label. Whether you’re looking for nuts, grains, seeds, or legumes — we work with them all! We offer a full line of plant-based beverages, blending and packaging them in our nationwide network of world-class aseptic plants.
Our talented staffs in Research & Development, Quality, and Regulatory can help with custom formulations on sourcing, flavors (including blends with other nut and plant-bases), sugar levels, and desired certifications (organic, gluten-free, non-GMO). Our aim is to develop the highest quality program for each of our customers. Click below to learn more about what we offer.
We start with North American whole rolled oats to create our proprietary gluten-free oatbase. Our oatbase can then be used as a key ingredient in a variety of oat beverages including oatmilk, barista blend, and coffee creamer.
Our oatbased concentrate can also be purchased as an ingredient in tankers or totes. Learn more here.
We’ve been in the soy business for over 20 years to source non-GMO and certified organic soybeans to create our proprietary soybase. Our soybase can then be used as the key ingredient in a variety of soy beverages for use in all applications including drinking, coffee, smoothies and more! Soy is a plant source of complete protein and is a great choice to add protein to ready-to-drink beverages.
Our soybase can also be purchased in tanker or totes for use as an ingredient in plant-based foods and ready-to-drink beverages. Learn more here.
Our direct relationships with the almond suppliers themselves enable us to provide the highest quality almond butter for our almondmilk. SunOpta’s almondmilk can be formulated for baristas, for drinking independently, and for countless other applications.
We have direct relationships with coconut suppliers in Southeast Asia that provide the highest quality coconut cream for our coconutmilk. Our coconutmilk can be formulated for baristas and other food service applications, as well as retail packs for drinking and many other applications.
Our hempmilk is made from our proprietary hempbase. We start with North American grown hulled hemp seeds, and specially process our hempmilk to have a smoother taste with fewer grassy notes. Hemp seeds inherently contain Omega 3 & 6, but do not contain CBD or THC, as those elements come from a different part of the hemp plant. Hempmilk can be formulated for a variety of applications including drinking singularly, with barista applications, and coffee creamer.
Our hempbase can also be purchased in tankers or totes for use as an ingredient in plant-based foods and ready-to-drink beverages. Learn more here.
