operational group and equipment vendors on preparing facility designs and process system solutions for a complex juice production and bottling operation and facility in Rancho Cucamonga, California. They remodeled the existing 250,000 sq. ft. dry warehouse building to accommodate the juice process and production facility. The building required extensive renovations and upgrades. After its completion in February 2014, the juice production facility currently distributes a variety of bottled fresh juice products to Starbucks

stores nationally, designed to generate approximately 9 million gallons of bottled fruit and vegetable juice per year, with expansion capacity to 12 million gallons.[5] Products[edit] Evolution Fresh
Evolution Fresh
produces a line of super-premium, cold-pressed juices and in 2010 Evolution invested in a new form of pasteurization equipment, known as Pascalization or High pressure processing (HPP). Using HPP, the bottled juice is subject to thousands of pounds of pressure for preservation without exposing the product to heat that some believe could damage the juice's flavor, color and nutritional value.[6] In 2011, Evolution produces five types of juice with the pascalization or High Pressure Process, Orange, Grapefruit, Lemonade, Apple
Apple
and Tangerine. This process now allows for a 40-day shelf life for fresh juice.[7] Evolution products currently go from the tree to shelf in less than 7 days.[8] References[edit]
