Frequently Asked Questions
How often can you deliver to my San Francisco office?
We deliver daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly to our customers! As long as it’s a business day, you’ll get juiced!
How much does Ugly Juice cost and how can I buy it?
We are bringing cold-pressed juice to the masses! 40% of produce never makes it to stores due to imperfections, so we pass the savings onto you, pricing UJ 30% less compared to other fresh juices. For wholesale buyers like our offices or events, we offer bulk discounts. We also offer bulk containers with deeper discounts for companies.

How far do you travel to make deliveries or cater an event?
For now, we only deliver to homes or offices in the San Francisco metropolitan area. We're working to expand to the greater Bay area. For events, however, we can travel outside of SF. If you are interested in a quote for your event, please give us a shout here. And Follow us for updates!
What do I need in order to reserve my tasting or to get a quote for an event?
A headcount of how many people are in your office
Any information related to allergies we should be aware of
A date/time that works best for you!
What juice flavors are available?
A wide variety. Because we believe in using seasonal, fresh produce, the type of produce we source shifts regularly, enabling us to create exciting new recipes. However, greens, roots and seasonal fruit are staples in our menu. You will never get bored!
What’s your delivery minimum?
Our delivery is $5 and we don’t have a minimum. To qualify for free delivery to your office, the minimum order is 30 individual juices or 3 gallons.
Where do you source your ugly produce from?
Through amazing partners like Imperfect Produce and other local produce wholesalers.
What size containers do the juices come in?
Our highly recyclable & BPA-free containers come in 16 oz, 8 oz and 2 oz health shots. Have a big office? We also deliver by the gallon!
Do you add sugar or anything else to the juices?
Absolutely no sugar or any other ingredients are added to ugly juices! They are 100% local, fresh seasonal, and raw. Each serving contains close to 2 pound of fruits and veggies!
How long do the juices last?
We work hard to deliver within just a few hours of juicing so it’s as fresh as possible. We highly recommend drinking your juice while fresh for the greatest health benefit. Fresh juice lasts up to 5 days, but we recommend consuming it within the first 72 hours (~3 days) when the juice has its highest nutritional value.
Can I order UJ through my office vendor?
Not at this time. Vendors that supply offices can’t abide by current safety laws and the rigorous process needed to keep raw juice 100% fresh.
Is reducing food waste a big deal?
Discarded food makes up 21% of our total landfill volume, takes up 18% of our total arable land, and uses 25% of our country's fresh water supply. This chalks up total food waste to a $218 billion loss annually in the United States. Fighting the wasted food beast can have huge environmental, societal, and financial impacts.
Are your juices organic?
As of now, our primary mission is to reduce waste and lead a sustainable business. We are able to source and recover fresh produce from local Bay Area farmers. Anywhere from 60-90% of our produce can be classified as organic. However, 100% of the produce that we utilize is fresh, nutritional and would have otherwise been gone to waste.
What are the nutritional facts?
Our Ugly Juice flavors are constantly rotating to reflect what is in season and which specific types of produce were recovered in large amounts that week. The numerical nutrition facts are not included on the bottle; however, the exact ingredients that are cold-pressed to make the juice are listed on the label. We do not add anything else to our juices other than the raw produce that you see on the label!
Do you offer cleanses?
The science and benefits for "detoxing" or "cleansing" are inconclusive, so we can’t recommend using our juice for cleansing.
Why should we buy Ugly Juice over “pretty” juice?
Buying Ugly Juice not only gives you the freshest, most nutritious cold-pressed juice, but there are numerous other benefits: you help stem food waste, you contribute to a new revenue stream for local farmers, and you get all the goodness of similar “pretty” juices that come from more expensive “visually appealing” on-the-outside, same-as-ours-on-the-inside at a much lower price! Ugly is the new pretty.
Do your juices contain fiber?
They do not contain fiber because the cold-press process optimizes extracting the most juice without the pulp/fiber. The benefit is faster absorption of nutrients. We do support the importance of balanced diet that includes a healthy amount of fiber!
