Califia Farms, a trailblazer in the plant-based dairy industry, has raised the bar with the introduction of Califia Farms Complete.

With eight grams of protein and all nine essential amino acids, Califia Farms Complete addresses the nutritional concerns of the 60 percent of consumers wary of missing out on vital nutrients when opting for plant-based beverages. Available at major retailers like Target and Walmart, this new offering is set to redefine expectations for plant-based milk.

Crafted from a unique blend of pea, chickpea and fava bean protein, Califia Farms Complete boasts a nutritional lineup comparable to dairy, including protein, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B12, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and riboflavin. It’s designed to cater to the growing demand for plant-based milks that do not compromise on taste, texture or nutritional value.

“The level of total nutrition found in Califia Farms Complete is a powerful and unique way for consumers to achieve their nutritional needs,” said Rajneesh Hora, chief science officer at Califia Farms, in a press release. “We spent a lot of time perfecting this formula to combine noteworthy amounts of vitamins, minerals and protein while delivering on the delicious, creamy consistency that’s become a hallmark of Califia’s plant-based products.”

In addition to Califia Farms Complete, the company also introduced five other innovative plant-based products, ranging from the first multi-serve Matcha Almond Latte to a limited-edition Chocolate Strawberry Almond Creamer, further diversifying its already impressive portfolio of dairy-free beverages.

Standing Out in a Crowded Market

The plant-based milk market has evolved significantly from its early days of soy and almond milk. Consumers now have a plethora of options, including oat, rice and coconut milk, among others. However, Califia Farms distinguishes itself through its commitment to quality, taste and nutritional content. The brand’s use of whole food plant sources and avoidance of the nine major allergens as determined by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) positions it as a leader in both innovation and consumer trust.

While Califia Farms is a prominent player, it operates in a competitive landscape with brands like Oatly, Almond Breeze and Silk also vying for consumer preference. These brands have their own unique selling points, from Oatly’s focus on oat milk to Silk’s extensive range of plant-based products. However, Califia Farms’ dedication to creating a product that rivals dairy milk in terms of nutrition and taste gives it a competitive edge, particularly for consumers looking for a more comprehensive nutritional profile in their plant-based beverages.

The plant-based milk market has seen exponential growth over the past few years, driven by increasing consumer awareness of health, environmental concerns and dietary restrictions. According to Strategic Market Research, the global plant-based milk market was valued at $35 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $123.1 billion by 2030 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15 percent. As consumers seek out alternatives to dairy, the market has responded with a vast array of options. Califia Farms has been at the forefront of this expansion, continuously innovating and expanding its product line to meet and anticipate consumer demand.

Califia Farms stands out in the crowded plant-based milk market not only through its innovative product offerings like Califia Farms Complete but also through its commitment to quality, taste and nutrition. As the market for plant-based beverages continues to grow, Califia Farms’ dedication to providing consumers with delicious, nutritious and sustainable options positions it as a leader in the industry.
