Dale Wettlaufer began building cider presses in his barn in 1976 for local apple farmers in rural New York state. His first product was a foot-pump hydraulic cider press he called the “Roadsider” because it gave farmers the capability to make apple cider and sell it near the side of the road.
From there, he went on to invent the open-top press bag which is now industry standard in commercial cold-press equipment. It allows for faster loading and unloading of a juice press compared to the original rack-and-cloth method.
This invention gave Goodnature the technology needed to earn nationally recognized customers such as Martinelli’s and Odwalla in the early 1990’s.
In the late 1990’s, some smaller clients began experimenting with Goodnature juice presses and using them on other produce varieties such as carrots and leafy greens.
Decades later, our cold-press juicers are used by thousands of companies of all sizes in over seventy countries, with our largest markets being the US, Canada, Australia, and Western Europe.
