When a company is welcoming you with open arms, expressing that they want to expand their employment family, that is a sign that things are going very well.
How would you like to work for a company that produces juices that taste good and appear to be great for people’s health?
Sounds like a sweet opportunity from Florida’s Marygrace Sexton’s company.
We love the sound of the name Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company. Great marketing. For those of us who love healthy juices, their name alone inspires us to peak in for a closer look.
At their well-designed website orchidislandjuice.com they smile, “For the last 30 years, we have been dedicated to feeding families a source of authentic nutrition. Producing fresh, clean label juice has been a labor of love for our family. Today, we are proudly women-owned and family-driven.
At Natalie’s, we want the quality of our ingredients to shine. That’s why we hand select and source the finest fruits and vegetables available. Our juices are handcrafted in small batches to ensure authentic freshness. We specialize in making clean, nutritious juice made with integrity.”
Most appealing and impressive to us were some of their top juices titled, Carrot Ginger, Tangerine Juice, Matcha Lemonade and blood orange.
Natalie’s juices are gourmet pasteurized at the minimum temperature, for the minimum amount of time, to ensure they deliver fresh, nutritious juice.
Sourcing from local and regional farmers ensures they support the livelihoods of their surrounding community first.
The larger world community has taken notice of Natalie’s in part because of their strong adherence to their core values and principles. Forbes magazine shares, “Sexton is not afraid to say no to a private-label customer who wants to use preservatives. She killed off a test line of juice-based popsicles that would have needed a gum additive to prevent crystallizing in the freezer. She is an unrepentant perfectionist.”
An industry rarity, Ms. Sexton spends $10 million a year warehousing fruit so she can juice it fresh in the summer.
The year was 1989 when Ms. Sexton was inspired to compete with the preservative-laced cartons that we see on supermarket shelves.
With only $20,000 she had saved from a job as a radiologist’s receptionist, she installed two 1,000-gallon stainless steel tanks and a juicer in a shed surrounded by groves and borrowed a butcher’s refrigerated truck to deliver the first pallet herself.
The rest is citrus history.
“I’m bonkers about juicing. I got into it when I lived in L.A. – I’d juice three times a day.”… Poppy Delevingne
Nathalie’s has come along at the right time. It is no secret that eating fresh and healthy foods as opposed to processed ones is vital in keeping one’s weight down and good health up.
As reported by healthline.com, “According to Cancer Research UK, more than 7 in 10 millennials (those born between 1981 and 1996) will be obese by the time they reach middle age, making them one of the heaviest generations in history.”
It is nutrition oriented companies like Nathalie’s that is bucking that trend.
So what is up next for this dynamic Florida group?
Natalie’s Juice Company Launches New Holistic Juice Line
Cold-Pressed, Mindfully-Crafted Juice with Superfoods and Botanicals to Promote Nutrition, Health and Wellbeing to Premiere at Publix Locations
FORT PIERCE, Fla., Feb. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company announced today the launch of a new line of cold-pressed juices that feature exciting new functional and holistic properties. The three new juices represent the next generation of Natalie’s juices and were brought to market after 6-months of streamlined development. Specifically formulated with functional botanicals, traditional spices and superfood ingredients, the Holistic Juice line will help promote customer health, wellness and nutrition.
“Our new line of Holistic Juices ushers in Natalie’s next generation of juices and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Marygrace Sexton, the Founder and CEO of Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company. “As Natalie’s continues to grow, it also continues to innovate – discovering fresh ways to offer our customers juices that will improve every aspect of their lives.”
The new line of holistic cold-pressed juices come in three varieties:
- Purify – made from blood orange, grapefruit, dandelion and ginger to help reduce inflammation and improve digestion.
- Relax – made from orange, pineapple, chamomile and passion flower to help calm the mind and relax the soul.
- Resilient – made from blood orange, elderberry, turmeric, black pepper and ginger to help boost the immune system and lower inflammation.
This is Natalie’s first foray into cold-pressed juices, a method consumers increasingly value. As with all of Natalie’s juices, the focus continues to be on using the fewest and freshest, plant-based ingredients and minimal processing so that customers are assured of enjoying a clean and nutritious juice.
“Consumers are driving brands to be more intentional with their innovation process. With trends rapidly evolving, it is important for Natalie’s to remain the authentic brand on the shelf as we strive to be quick-to-market with a functional juice line,” said Natalie Sexton, Vice President of Marketing. “Fortunately, Natalie’s is nimble enough to develop a new line with amazing dexterity and we are on the shelves with this new line in a matter of months.”
According to a recent SPINS Report on the Natural Channel, Natalie’s is one of the top four juices contributing growth in the functional juice category. This new line solidifies the company’s leadership role in this space as one of the most authentic and trusted clean label juice companies in the country.
Natalie’s Holistic Juices will premiere on shelves at Publix locations starting at the end of March. They will also be available at Fresh Thyme in the Midwest, and Fairway in the Northeast.
