NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Sept. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Beaumont Juice, Inc. (d/b/a Perricone Juices) announced today that it has agreed to purchase all of the remaining shares of United Juice Companies of America, Inc. (d/b/a Lambeth Groves) that Perricone Juices does not currently own. Marc Craen and Dan Petry, who are currently shareholders and operators of Lambeth Groves, will join the Perricone Juices leadership team and will continue to lead the Vero Beach, Florida operations and sales teams in their roles as Senior Vice President of Operations and Vice President of Sales, respectively. Perricone Juices says that this newly combined entity enables the company to provide its customers with the highest quality, premium juices at the most cost-effective prices possible.
Perricone Juices was founded in 1994 by Sam Perricone, who was one of the largest citrus growers in the United States.

In addition to its popular orange and grapefruit juices, Perricone Juices also creates lemon, lime, and tangerine juices in both conventional and organic varieties.
