Jan 21, 2014, 07:00 ET from Red Jacket Orchards

GENEVA, N.Y., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Jacket Juice, a premium line of fresh 100% fruit juices, cold-pressed at Red Jacket Orchards in Geneva, NY (Finger Lakes Region), is launching exclusively into the Twin Cities at Lunds and Byerly's.


Red Jacket Orchards, a family owned orchard has been crafting fresh fruit juice for over 5 decades. The juice is produced in a sustainable juice facility (L.E.E.D certified) right on the orchard. Red Jacket's line of fresh unfiltered juices, now available in all 23 stores, includes: Fuji-Apple, Raspberry, Strawberry, Grape, Blackcurrant, Cherry and Apricot.

"Our family has passed down through the generations a passion, know-how and commitment required to make outstanding fresh products," commented Brian Nicholson, a third-generation owner of Red Jacket. "We believe great flavor and nutrition come naturally when you keep it simple and respect the fruit."

Red Jacket's all natural juice is cold-pressed fresh and unfiltered, with no additives – it's as close to the raw fruit as you can get. Made from whole fruit and flash-pasteurized, each juice is a good source of fiber, Vitamin C and antioxidants. Studies even demonstrate how cold-pressed cloudy juice is at least 50% more effective in antioxidant activity than clarified juice.  

 "Lunds and Byerly's has always been committed to providing customers with high quality products," stated Rick Steigerwald, V.P. Fresh Foods, "We're pleased to be expanding our high quality offerings with the addition of Red Jacket's fresh juices."

Red Jacket Juice has become New York City's favorite juice and has garnered national media attention, including Zagat Gourmet Guide ("Best-On-The-Planet" rating) and New York Magazine dubbing it "an uncut jolt to the brain." Other reviews include: Martha Stewart's Hand Selected "American Made" Feature, The New York Times, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Café Mom "The Stir" and more.
