Juiceology Expands Distribution, Continues Innovation

Juiceology, the dynamic beverage company headquartered in Southern California, continues their nationwide distribution expansion, adding Kroger to the list of stores and markets who carry its nutrient-packed juices made from blend of premium fruits and eight grams of natural fiber. Juiceology’s growth has placed its natural juices on the shelves of more than 5,000 retail stores nationwide including Wal-Mart, Safeway, Sprouts and Albertsons.

Kroger will carry Juiceology’s four best selling flavors (Green Elements, Blueberry Acai, Pomegranate Blue Cranberry and Peach Mango) starting in mid-October with a suggested retail price of $2.99.

“Our distribution has been steadily growing over the past two years,” said Juiceology’s Chief Executive Officer Felipe d’Avila. “Our customers have supported every aspect of our expansion, from new flavors to new retail distribution. We are grateful that our fans continue to purchase our products–and it’s their brand loyalty that has helped us stand out and surge as a very popular juice brand in the marketplace.”

Another tenet of Juiceology’s success that has contributed to their expansion is the unparalleled, high quality of their juice blends—made with the freshest fruits and vegetables available, Juiceolgy’s premium juices are the only line in stores that contain 32 percent of the FDA’s recommended daily fiber value and less than 200 calories per bottle.

As retail distribution grows, Juiceology continues to innovate in the marketplace—2016 will bring the debut of new packaging, Non-GMO Project Certification and the introduction of Red Elements, a new flavor combining red fruits, and a healthy touch of ginger and turmeric.

“We are not just another boring juice company who tells you what to drink and how to live. We’re passionate about innovating top notch products that meet the wants and needs of our customers while creating products that combine health and enjoyment for everyone,” said d’Avila.
