We are really proud to announce that our team completed our SALSA and Soil Association audits for 2019 with flying colours, achieving the rare accolade of having no recommended actions by the auditor for the second year running.
It means a lot to us as a small business to have our commitment to excellence in food safety and quality recognised by independent bodies, and we are looking forward to sharing the news with our customers.
Kent based premium cold pressed juice manufacturer The Juice Executive have achieved the SALSA and Soil Association certifications within their first year of operating. The Juice Executive, who specialise in providing bespoke white label cold pressed juice was set up by 24 year old Alexandra Auger in 2014, and the company moved to their purpose built juicing facility in January 2015. The company has seen significant growth throughout 2015 in white label sales, as they are able to offer both fresh and HPP contract production services to UK clients. Miss Auger said that the SALSA accreditation gave the company the credibility they need within a competitive industry, where Soil Association meeds the Organic Standards of many of The Juice Executive’s new clients. 2016 looks to be an exciting year for the company, within an exponentially growing market.

The Juice Executive, Kent launches its purpose built, cold pressed vegetable juicing plant this week. The cold pressed juice industry is a rapidly growing market in the UK, with trends replicating patterns seen in the US and Australia. Alongside growing concerns over the high natural sugar content in fruit juice, vegetable juice is fast growing a reputation as a healthier choice.
With juices including the ‘Ultimate Green’, a cold pressed blend of wheatgrass, spinach, cucumber, celery, pear, parsley & lemon, The Juice Executive offers a truly fresh, healthy & delicious way to up your vegetable intake. Other vegetable juice based products currently on the supermarket shelves have all either undergone flash pasteurisation or HPP (High Pressure Processing) to extend their shelf life, something which The Juice Executive does not compromise on.
There has been an explosion of start-up cold pressed juice companies over the past 18 months in the UK. Many however operate on an artisan scale, with minimal production facilities contributing to a high market price. The Juice Executive has taken cold pressed juice processing to a commercial level, with an enviable capacity but no compromise on freshness or quality. The short shelf life of cold pressed juice (3-4 days) means that a state of the art facility must have the ability to source, press, package and distribute volume on a daily basis. The Juice Executive hopes to challenge more traditional distribution methods, and bring cold pressed juices direct to the consumer without the need for HPP. The company operates their own brand of juices available online and through selected stockists (250ml from £3.90). As a manufacturer, The Juice Executive also offers white label products to higher volume customers. For all trade enquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
