A Valley-based juice shop is expanding and looking for new employees.

Re-Invent Juicery is opening a store at Fig Garden Village next to CVS. The shop uses local and all-natural ingredients to make their cold press juices. Customers can also indulge in blended drinks and acai bowls.

It is their fourth location in the Fresno-Clovis area since they first opened for business in 2015. However, they did shut down their location on Ashlan and Fowler last month.

Re-Invent Juicery is currently hiring for their new location and is hoping to open on July 20th.

From hardware stores to manufacturers, small businesses are ingrained in California’s communities and economy, which is why Hanford’s Rosa Brothers Milk Company was recently recognized for its hard work and dedication to the community by being named Small Business of the Year.

“We are truly honored to be recognized by Senator Vidak on California Small Business Day,” Noel Rosa, president of Rosa Brothers Milk Company, said. “We have a great team of employees that work hard to produce the freshest, best-tasting milk products possible and we are happy to share our family’s farm fresh products with California consumers.”

On June 19, Rosa Brothers Milk Company was honored by Senator Andy Vidak (R-Hanford) at California Small Business Day as Small Business of the Year in Senate District 14.

“It was an honor to welcome Noel Rosa to the Capitol,” Vidak said. “Rosa Brothers Milk Company is an outstanding small business and we are lucky to have them in the Central Valley. Noel, Rolland and all of their employees have built their business into one of the best dairies in California and their high-quality products are very popular across the entire state.”

California Small Business Day honored 75 small businesses for their contribution to the state’s economy. According to the California Small Business Association, small businesses contribute to 75 percent of California’s gross state product and over half of the state’s private sector jobs.

“California’s small businesses are the economic engine of our state,” Betty Jo Toccoli, president of the California Small Business Association, said in a released statement. “Rosa Brothers Milk Company was celebrated for their successful small business and contributions to the community.”

Operated by brothers Noel and Rolland Rosa, third generation dairy farmers, the company began production of its milk and ice cream in September 2012 with just a handful of stores selling their products.

According to the company’s website, the creamery was built with a few goals in mind:

  • To provide California families with the best-tasting dairy products found anywhere in the world.
  • To provide safe, pure dairy products that have not been overly processed or modified.
  • To keep milk quickly flowing to local stores for maximum freshness.
  • To provide a truly local product that comes through a transparent channel, allowing families to watch the milk all the way from the cow to the bottle or ice cream carton.

The Rosa Brothers have tried to remain true to their roots by hiring local, buying local supplies and making local products.

“We’re a truly local company based right here in Hanford,” Noel Rosa said.

Today, Rosa Brothers Milk Company products, including over a dozen of both milk and ice cream flavors, can be found in over 750 locations throughout California and have won several awards at the Fresno Food Expo.

“Their story is one of inspiration and determination and they are a perfect example of how small businesses are the backbone of our economy and provide much needed jobs in our communities,” Vidak said.

Noel Rosa said everyone at the company was humbled by the recognition and is proud to be part of the local economy. Most of all, he said they are very thankful to community and all the support they’ve received over the years.

Valley Children’s trauma center gets positive review

 

  • Now verified as a Level II Pediatric Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons
  • “This verification is important to our Trauma Center”

Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera has been verified as a Lever II Pediatric Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons. It is the only pediatric trauma center in the region.

“This verification is important to our Trauma Center, as the ACS recognizes Valley Children’s – from our surgeons and nurses to our therapists and trauma coordinators – for providing exceptional pediatric trauma care as quickly as possible, from  start to finish, for children involved in car crashes, falls, accidents, acts of violence and other trauma,” says Valley Children’s Healthcare President and CEO Todd Suntrapak.

“Trauma center levels across the United States are identified in two fashions: a designation process and a verification process,” explains the American Trauma Society. “The different levels (ie. Level I, II, III, IV or V) refer to the kinds of resources available in a trauma center and the number of patients admitted yearly.”

Earlier this year, representatives with the ACS’s Verification Review Committee visited the hospital. They assessed commitment, readiness, resources, policies, patient care and performance improvement among other requirements. Verified trauma centers must meet essential criteria that ensure capability and institutional performance as outlined by the ACS.

“Injury is the leading cause of death and acquired disability for children, and providing expert trauma care across the continuum – from injury prevention to pediatric rehabilitation  and family restoration – is at the core of our mission,” says Michael Allshouse, medical director of Valley Children’s pediatric trauma program and pediatric surgery.

This verification by the ACS comes two years after the Central California Emergency Medical Services Agency designated Valley Children’s Hospital as a Level II Pediatric Trauma Center, the only such center between the Bay Area and Los Angeles.

With that designation, critically injured children could be transported directly from the field to Valley Children’s Hospital, ensuring they receive expert pediatric care even sooner than before.
