Cambridge Juice Company
It’s fair to say the team at Cambridge Juice Company know their fruit. Founded 100 years ago by C. A. Lowe as a popular fruit and vegetable stall on Cambridge market, the family business has thrived and this year will be celebrating its 23rd year as a leading drinks wholesaler.
With director Kelly Richardson at the helm, Cambridge Juice Company offers a choice of over 300 products (including dairy free, gluten free and plastic free options), to its ever-growing customer base made up of independent farm shops, delis, restaurants, cafes, colleges and small businesses across East Anglia, which are all delivered by the company’s friendly team of drivers.
Customers are spoilt for choice with a range of local, organic and Fairtrade brands to choose from including Coldpress, the Berry Company, Frobishers, ONE Water, Cambridgeshire based Breckland Orchard Posh Pops, and many more.
Winners of the People’s Choice (East & East Anglia) Family Business of the Year 2021, the team at Cambridge Juice Company are passionate about championing local, family-run businesses, which is why when they decided to introduce their own branded juices five years ago, they looked no further than their neighbouring apple orchard. The result was their delicious apple juice, made from apples which are grown, picked and pressed in Meldreth. With no additives, no concentrate and no added sugar, it’s a hit with customers and was the second best-seller of 2019, just pipped to the post by another of Cambridge Juice Company’s own creations, a sweet yet tangy orange and clementine juice.
Alongside the drinks range there are also a selection of snacks including artisan crisps from Fairfield Farms and Ten Acre crisps and popcorn. Huntingdon based Glebe Farm provide a range of gluten-free items including an oat drink, cereals, flour and bakery items.
