Cliffstar Corporation began over 100 years ago, when Meyer Star settled in the Dunkirk-Fredonia area in New York State. As an innovator in the rapidly growing grape industry, Meyer Star produced Star Wine in the heart of this Chautauqua County grape belt. From those beginnings, the Cliffstar Corporation evolved in the early 1970’s and now produces shelf stable juices, teas, sports drinks, fitness waters, and vitamin waters. Today, Cliffstar remains privately owned by the Star Family.
Cliffstar now includes 10 geographical locations and employs over 1300 associates which contribute to the company’s success. Cliffstar Corporation is the largest independent grape, cranberry, and prune juice processor, and one of the largest private label beverage suppliers in the United States.
In addition to serving thousands of private label lines with more than 145 blends of juices, Cliffstar presses most of its own grapes, cranberries, and prunes to ensure consistent quality, flavor, and color in all its beverages.
The Company's facilities include the most modern and sophisticated pressing and filtration equipment, large blending tanks, and numerous juice pasteurizers and coolers. Towering stainless steel tanks provide cold storage capacity in excess of 6 million gallons.
