The Old Orchard juice journey begins with an idea, an a-ha moment, an inspiration. What if we combined apple with kiwi and strawberry? How awesome would it be to pair peach with mango? How can we keep big juice flavor while reducing calories? That’s when we head for our state-of-the-art product development lab and go for it under the experienced supervision of our Certified Food Scientist. Getting the perfect blend of juice flavors is part art, part science, and part tenacity. We’re committed to bringing you nothing but fine-tuned flavor profiles.
Once we’ve hit on the perfect mix, we set out to source the finest juices wherever they may be found, whether that’s right here in Michigan or Timbuktu. After passing taste testing and approval from our quality assurance team, we combine just the right ratio of each juice in, well, basically a giant blender.
Then heat pasteurization is used to ensure every drop is healthy and stable before heading through our fully-automated beverage packaging system, which — get this — fills an average of 270 bottles, or 550 frozen concentrate cans per minute. Wow. It takes a lot to keep up with our thirsty fans.
Old Orchard products finish their journey in our 140,000 square foot, fully-automated manufacturing and distribution facility, where bottles are automatically boxed and put on pallets in preparation for their move to retailers across the country, around the globe... and finally to you. Phew! That is quite the process! Getting our juice blends from our hearts and minds to your table is a long — albeit fruitful — journey, and an adventure all of us at Old Orchard find worthwhile in every way. We are pleased to bring you the highest quality and freshest tastes—from our home to yours. Thanks for putting your trust in us.
