About Caliper Foods

Caliper Foods (, formerly Stillwater, is a consumer packaged goods company that offers safe and standardized hemp-derived soluble cannabinoids to both consumers and manufacturers alike. 

Caliper Foods encompasses two distinct business lines: (1) Caliper Commercial Ingredients, which provides soluble CBD ingredients at scale to food, beverage, supplement, and other CPG manufacturers; and (2) Caliper Consumer, which sells its own line of CBD-infused products nationwide. 

Caliper Foods was founded in 2015 on the belief that cannabinoids, especially non-psychoactive compounds like CBD, are a major new category in functional ingredients.

We chose the name, Caliper, because we believe in measuring our success with proven and exact science. Everyone in the industry says they're the trusted partner. We actually prove it. We are a company, not a cult. We don't evangelize what we can't prove and we value process as much as outcome.

We collaborate. Not just in a, “hey, let me bounce this idea off of you” kind of way. While we give credit where credit is due, it’s not about the credit – it’s about what we build together. We allow each other to make mistakes, and we all step in to help adjust course when necessary. We are all adults, and we trust each other to get our shit done.
