WHO GROWS & MAKES V8
V8 vegetable drinks start with our family farmers. In California, our tomato farmers grow millions of ripe, red tomatoes for our cocktails each year. Our farmers in Ohio and neighbouring states, as well as New York, South Carolina, and across the Southern United States, grow veggies for our secret blend of seven vegetables which includes carrots and beets for V8 Original and Low Sodium beverages – our Smooth & Seasoned blends also contain green and red peppers. We also use grape juice to give a touch of sweetness to our Smooth & Seasoned and Low Sodium vegetable cocktail. Our family of employees in Paris, Texas and Napoleon, Ohio expertly blend the beverages to create delicious flavours. There are no artificial colours or preservatives involved in making V8 Original.
Our V8 family is also very conscious about their impact on the environment. Our farmers and employees work very hard to reduce the amount of water used to grow our veggies and make our drinks. For example, 93% of the water used in our Napoleon plant is recycled.
