The WESTSOY® Story
WESTSOY® Soymilk began over 35 years ago when the original founders, two students who ran a coffeehouse at the University of California at Davis, converted a supermarket into a natural and organic food center. The Organic Original you see on the shelves today was one of their earliest products. For almost three decades, WESTSOY Soymilk has been America’s leading brand of shelf-stable soymilk*, offering non-dairy consumers a wide variety of delicious and nutritious lactose-free products.* From the start, WESTSOY has always been committed to nutrition and offering only the best quality soymilks and soy beverages in a wide variety using only organic soymilk. In 1997, WESTSOY became part of The Hain Celestial Group, the leader in natural and organic foods.
WESTSOY has a total belief in its delicious heart-healthy goodness exemplified by a new certification by the American Heart Association® as low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol and as low as possible in trans fat, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
WESTSOY is just as passionate about the planet as it is about soymilk. WESTSOY aseptic cartons minimize transit costs because of their packaging footprint, which allows for efficient truckloads and economical fuel use. Plus, WESTSOY is processed using a UHT (ultrahigh temperature/short time) pasteurization process, and is packaged in aseptic cartons that have a foil layer in the middle of the layers of the packaging that prevent any air or moisture penetration.
