    hmm. is the pressed juicery acquisition a good thing? i normally always hate when organic lines get bought (insert burts bees, naked, kashi, etc) so i wonder what this means. although i have never tried pressed juicery i was planning on heading there soon.

      Hi Cristina,

      Is the BluePrint acquisition a good thing? That remains to be seen. They will grow much faster now and introduce more flavors but whether they maintain the quality and organic integrity is something that we don’t know just yet.

      Pressed Juicery is different from BluePrint. BluePrint is certified organic and Pressed Juicery is not.

      Live well,

    Interesting to compare and contrast eh?
