Red Jacket Orchards, a third generation family owned orchard with an advanced Kosher and L.E.E.D certified "green" juice facility, now offers direct-from-the orchard juices at Tops Friendly Markets.
"For decades we've been crafting our fresh, cold-pressed juice and simply wowing consumers with a delicious and healthy option that's otherwise not available in juice," commented Brian Nicholson, a third generation owner of Red Jacket. "We believe great flavor and nutrition happen naturally if you keep it simple and respect the fruit. We're excited to partner with Tops Markets across NY and northern PA."
Red Jacket's line of unfiltered apple-based blends available at Tops Markets will include: Fuji-Apple, Raspberry, Strawberry and Grape in 12oz and 32oz sizes. The line also includes their popular fresh fruit nectars (called "Stomps") Tart Cherry Juice and Apricot.
"Tops has always been committed to providing local, healthy product choices demanded by consumers," stated Steven Wright, Top's produce director. "With Red Jacket's fresh juices, now available in Tops produce departments, consumers can enjoy local and healthy- best of all they taste great."
Red Jacket's all-natural juice is cold-pressed and unfiltered, with no additive and never from concentrate. Each juice is as close to the raw fruit as you can get, the company says, made from whole fruit and flash-pasteurized. Red Jacket Juice is also a good source of fiber, Vitamin C and antioxidants. The company adds that studies have demonstrated how cold-pressed juices that are unfiltered and cloudy are at least 50 percent more effective in antioxidant activity than highly processed, clarified juice (often made from concentrate).
