The Use of Natural & Organic Ingredients

R.W. Knudsen has been using organic ingredients since 1961. The reason? The company is committed “to reduce the amount of synthetic pesticides and herbicides released into the environment.” Not only does R.W. Knudsen stand behind organic agriculture, but it also is careful to adhere to the required practices and procedures required of an organic handler.

From Russel W. Knudsen’s original grape juice to today’s 125+ varieties, one thing remains unchanged: quality. Each product is made with 100% natural ingredients (no sugar, preservatives, or artificial colors added!), and 50% of R.W. Knudsen products are made using 95% or greater certified organic ingredients.

Renewable Energy Used during Production

R.W. Knudsen realizes that the way in which it operates its facilities its just as important as the quality ingredients used in its products. The company has invested in technologies such as those that capture waste heat and methane gas, which is converted to power things such as the facility’s electricity and the pasteurization process. R.W. Knudsen is able to obtain almost half of its energy needs (during peak hours) from the energy it is able to renew in the facility.
