Have you ever bought a made-to-order juice only to find it goes frothy and browner in colour not long after being made? That's because it was made by a 'centrifugal' juicer. Centrifugal juicers operate at such fast speeds that their spinning blades introduce high temperatures and oxidisation to the produce, resulting in a less nutrient-dense juice. Cold-press juicers (also known as 'masticating' juicers) use a slow juicing method whereby the whole fruit or vegetable is mulched into a pulp and then pressed between hydraulic plates to squeeze the juice from the fibre. The result is a vibrant, raw juice full of flavour and living enzymes.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is cold-pressed juice?
Is your produce sourced locally?
Absolutely. All of our fruits and vegetables are sourced locally from Australian growers.
Do you add sugar, preservatives or water to your juices?
Absolutely not! Our products do not contain any added sugar, water or preservatives.
Yes, the juices are perishable and need to be refrigerated. Our production facility operates at a constant temperature below 4°C. The juices are packaged and delivered in foam boxes with reusable ice bricks to keep them cold during transit. If no one is home to receive the delivery, we will do our best to leave them in a safe, cool spot but they may spoil depending on the outside temperature. As soon as you receive the delivery, please take the juices out of the box and place them in the fridge. The juices will stay fresh for 14-30 days depending on the juice variety.
All our juices are made in a HACCP certified production facility in Homebush, NSW.
After 3+ years of sampling and selling our juices at farmers markets, we can tell you that every palate is quite different! Please check each product description for tasting notes. If it's your first time trying our juices, we suggest buying a small pack (250ml size) of each flavour to try them out.
You're welcome to try making your own blends at home - if you send us an email, we can even recommend which type of home cold-press juicers are best for your juicing needs. However, once you've invested in your juicer ($500+ for a decent one), bought your produce (it takes over 1kg of produce and a LOT of time to make a 450ml glass of juice) and cleaned it all up, you'll probably find it's equally cost-effective to leave the dirty work to us
We use PET 1 recyclable bottles. There are several reasons why we choose plastic for our juices instead of glass. Glass is significantly more heavy with the average weight of a glass bottle being 225 grams versus 22 grams for plastic. This increases shipping costs and requires more gas and oil to distribute each bottle.
