Growing demand for dairy-free products

Califia Farms is an LA-based company that was set up in 2010. It specializes in dairy-free milk alternatives, and offers milks, creamers, and cold brew coffees and teas. 

The company was founded by the late Greg Steltenpohl, an entrepreneur also known for co-founding the juice company Odwalla, in response to rapidly growing demand for dairy-free milk

In the US, the dairy-free milk market generates around three billion dollars in revenue each year. While the media often focuses on struggles within the alternative meat market in its vegan coverage, the alternative dairy market has been skyrocketing

Soy, oat, and almond are the most popular plant milks, but others including coconut, cashew, and even potato are available as well. 

The new “Complete Kids” Califia Farms offering adds to the relatively smaller pea milk category. Peas are growing in popularity in the alt dairy scene, and are increasingly being utilized by vegan cheese companies.
