Light & Glass


While other beverage companies use petroleum-based plastic packaging, we bottle our products in glass for purity and taste. How do we do this? Our unique light filtration process uses light rays to preserve our liquid without pasteurizing it. The effects are minimally invasive – eliminating juice spoilers without impacting nutrient counts – so you can enjoy pure, raw Solti.
