Jay-Z says he also wants to increase the economic participation of people returning from incarceration through job training and workforce development.
The rapper called Caliva “the best partners for this endeavor.”
Caliva operates a farm and two stores in Northern California. It also distributes its branded products in roughly two dozen other retail outlets in the state.
NFL legend Joe Montana’s venture capital firm took part in a $75 million investment in Caliva earlier this year.
