Who is Dose?
Dose is a small, Montreal-based team that began introducing the city to their juices in the fall of 2013. The team itself consists of members from all professional backgrounds, but with a common passion for healthy living and entrepreneurship.
Are you hiring?
We are not currently hiring, but are always on the lookout for new community members that have a shared passion for juicing, healthy living, and growing a young startup. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cold-pressed: what does it mean?
All of our juices are cold-pressed, which means that they are not heated, heat pasteurized, or chemically treated. By applying thousands of pounds of pressure, our Norwalk juicer keeps all of the nutrients intact, allowing your body to quickly absorb everything.
Heat pasteurized: what does it mean?
Heat pasteurization, no matter how “lovingly” or “gently” it is done, results in a juice that has been effectively heated (thus, cooked), killing essential vitamins, minerals, and live enzymes. We never apply heat on any produce or juices.
Your Norwalk Juicer: how is it different than mine?
Traditional blenders spin at extremely high speeds, extracting juice via blades that grind and chop. This process creates friction and heat which kills vitamins, minerals, and live enzymes. Our juices are cold-pressed by the Norwalk juicer which is known to extract up to five times the amount of nutrients as most other juicers.
Do you source local produce?
All of our produce is organic and raw, and we are working constantly with local farmers to bring in exclusively local produce. While some of our fruits and vegetables may currently not be local, we’re aiming to make this a realistic goal in the coming months.
Is everything really organic?
Yes. One cannot use the term organic on its labels if it is not certified. We have always used organic ingredients, but now we have the stamp of approval that we always do. We are proudly certified organic by Ecocert Canada ( USDA organic and Canada organic). Without certification a product is not guaranteed organic and you may be getting less for your money. Since we only use organic ingredients, it will happen that we temporarily suspend the production of one of our flavours due to a certain ingredient being unavailable in the organic section. ( ie. Almond milks summer 2015)
How long do Dose juices conserve?
You can keep Dose juices in your refrigerator for up to 4 full days once open. Separation is a sign that no homogenizing agents were added and only natural ingredients were used (read: celebrate separation!). Shake well and enjoy.
Why did my juice separate after some time?
This is one of the most common phenomena with freshly pressed juices, and it’s a sign that the juice you’re drinking is made with all-natural produce. It’s always a good idea to shake your juice before consuming it. Dose juices never use any chemicals or homogenizing agents.
Counter-indications (diabetes, blood thinners, etc.)
In any situation where a medical condition comes into question, it is always best to contact your doctor or health care provider. If you have any type of medical condition that affects the way you eat or drink, consult your doctor before any cleanses or detoxes.
Orders & Billing
Will I receive confirmation of my delivery and order?
All orders and deliveries are confirmed via email. When you place an order you’ll receive an order confirmation with the order details. When your juice is delivered, you will also receive a confirmation that it has arrived at your office or reception desk.
Do you keep my credit card information?
We do keep credit card information saved to your profile for your convenience. All credit card and billing information is stored securely, making it easy for you to make your weekly juice orders. This information is stored in relation to the email profile created at signup and/or checkout.
When will I be billed?
Your credit card is billed at the time of checkout for a one-time order, or the first order in a recurring order. All recurring orders are billed on the preceding Sunday. For example, if you order a Taxi for every Wednesday, you’ll be billed immediately for the first, and every Sunday afterwards.
How do recurring orders and deliveries work?
Living healthy and being part of the juicing community is not a one-time thing. Avid juicers do it multiple times a week, and we’ve built the platform for them to do so. Choose to repeat any order at any frequency and we’ll handle the rest. Remember: Dose delivers every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
How much does delivery cost?
We currently offer free juice delivery to the downtown core of Montreal. We still deliver to surrounding regions and postal codes, but at a small cost. We also deliver across Québec and Ontario. For more information visit the "delivery" page.
Where do you deliver?
We currently deliver across the island of Montréal and many regions of Québec and Ontario. Consult our delivery guide to see if your postal code is in our delivery zone.
