Ripe Craft Juices continues grocery expansion in US
Ripe Craft Juice and Ripe Bar Juice are expanding the reach of their juices and cocktail mixes with the continuation of a roll-out to several grocery chains across the US.
RIPE Craft Juices and Bar Juices were created to redefine consumer expectations of real fresh juice. The process is simple – start with the best fruits and vegetables, use the absolute minimum in processing, and offer a juice that surpasses all others in freshness, taste, and nutrition."Consumers today are increasingly focused on the provenance of their produce, and the grocery stores where they shop are responding with the brands they stock," said Keith Benoit, Chief Sales Officer, FreshBev. "We're thrilled that so many of the country's leading grocery chains have joined the RIPE movement."

At the RIPE Craft Juicery in New Haven, Connecticut, every step in the making of fresh juices is managed to ensure the time from grower to refrigerator is mere days as opposed to weeks, which is more often the case.
All juice extraction is done under one roof and never above 40°. Within minutes of being extracted, the liquid is bottled and submitted to high-pressure technology — making them safe and helping preserve of the color, flavor, aroma, and nutrition.
