Beverly Hills Juice was founded in 1975 by David Otto when he began serving raw, nutritious juices to the Los Angeles community, prioritizing an environmentally-conscious approach. Since then, it’s amassed a fan base, but hasn’t changed its fundamental philosophy. The Otto family still turns farmer’s market produce into healthy, flavorful juices each morning using a hydraulic press which preserves the naturally abundant vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, while maximizing the juice’s shelf life. In keeping with the family’s environmental commitment, Beverly Hills Juice provides disposable cups and straws made of plant-based, compostable materials. Additionally, Beverly Hills Juice composts all of its leftover food scraps.
