Our Story

RIPE strives to improve the everyday health of our community by providing convenient access to raw, organic, delicious plant-based nutrition.

Our Founders


RIPE was created by Meghan Muise and Lindsay Haley, two friends that have followed very different paths in life that both led them to the same place, health. They fell in love with plant based diets and juicing as a way of life, not a trend. The idea evolved from a collective longing for accessible, fresh raw juice and the need for a place to come to rehydrate and revitalize. They believe that friendship and green juice go hand in hand. Juicing has changed their lives for the better and they want to spread the love with juice.

RIPE JUICERY is an all plant based, organic & gluten free juice bar & kitchen! We offer a full plant based food menu, brunch menu, grab & go items, smoothies, ašai bowls, cleanses, desserts & MORE! We are constantly adding new plant based items to keep you nourished & healthy! Join us for lunch or stop by for a smoothie & say hi!

WE BELIEVE

  • You truly are what you eat
  • Every part of your body that makes you, is formed from the building blocks of the food you eat
  • Raw, plant-based foods can fit the fast-paced, urban way of living
  • Mother Nature provides food to nourish you, and real food is beautiful in its simplicity
  • True health is more than the absence of disease
  • Natural, organic food makes your skin sing, your sleep deeper, your waistline slimmer and your mind clearer

WHY DO WE INSIST ON PUTTING OUR COLD PRESSED JUICE IN GLASS BOTTLES?

Here's a better question: Why would we select the finest organic produce, cold press 3 or 4 pounds of it into a single pint of pure, nourishing juice, only to pour that pint into a bottle made from petrochemicals? Glass is odorless and tasteless. Therefore glass bottles leach no chemicals into our RIPE cold pressed juice!

By contrast, the plastic used in bottling from the 1940s to the present, Bisphenol A (BPA), was first synthesized in a laboratory barely more than 100 years ago. And industry scientists began to realize the health dangers it posed shortly thereafter.

  • Non-reactive
  • Non-leaching
  • Reusable
  • Made from an abundance of natural resources

WHY DO PEOPLE USE PLASTIC CONTAINERS IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Remember the "good old days?" When milk came in bottles made of an odourless, tasteless, chemical free, inert material: glass. So what happened? Well there are a couple of very good reasons that food producers including many cold pressed juiceries, use plastic containers:

  • Plastic is cheap: It costs less to manufacture than glass
  • Plastic weighs much less than glass, and that makes it much cheaper to ship from place to place
  • Plastic is durable: It doesn't break as easily as glass

From green juices to green initiatives we are
committed to remaining all things green.
