The Judges
(In alphabetical order)

Canada's largest organic soy beverage brand, So Nice is manufactured by Soyaworld Inc., based in Burnaby, BC.

It’s our goal to make a soy product that tastes delicious, is good for the environment and good for you. Unlike some soy beverages out there, we use only organic, non-GMO soybeans grown right here in Canada and the US. We are proud to say that most of our products contain more than 95% organic ingredients and bear the Canada Organic logo.

In addition to that, all of our beverages, with the exception of our Natural flavour, are fortified with calcium, vitamins A, D2, B12, and riboflavin to enhance nutritional value. And, of course, all our organic products are low in fat and calories, high in protein, as well as being lactose, cholesterol and gluten free. So feel free to enjoy with peace of mind and body!
