Apple juice maker to launch orange and clementine juice

Maynard House Orchards Orange and Clementine JuiceMaynard House Orchards, the Suffolk apple juice producer, has teamed up with one of the best citrus fruit growers in Valencia to launch a new orange and clementine juice.

The juice will be available in 200ml bottles, distributed to bars, restaurants, hotels and cafes across the UK for drinking neat or for use in cocktails and other mixed drinks.

Maynard House Orange and Clementine Juice will be launched at the Hotelympia show in London’s Excel centre, which runs from April 28 to May 1.

As with its Suffolk apple juices, the fruits have been carefully selected, this time sourced from a traditional orange-growing family company in Spain.

It is made from an even blend of freshly pressed Valencian oranges and clementines, resulting in a complex and sweet juice, with no pulp and no additives.

It also features a new bottle design for Maynard House Orchards, developed in response to customer feedback. The new 200ml “stubby” with a wide neck makes it easier to pour and drink straight from the bottle and helps with storing on shelves.

Clive Williamson, owner of Maynard House Orchards, said: “For many years now, our customers have asked us if we could offer an orange juice of the same quality and values as our award-winning apple juice range and we have recently found a way to meet this demand.

“Our major hurdle of course is that we cannot grow oranges of the necessary quality in Suffolk, so we have joined up with family-run orange growers in the heart of Valencia, with established quality credentials and similar values and integrity that Maynard House Orchards has worked so hard to build.

“In Britain we are well used to our oranges arriving with little green Valencian stickers as this area is widely recognised to produce the most superior orange juice.

“This fruit offers excellent colour, flavour and high juice content, which is why the Valencia orange variety is shipped and grown all over the world, including California.”
