Also expects to add new flavors to its canning operations
Apple Rush has revealed that it will be starting the canned production later this month of the three flavors of its organic 100% juice drink products Original Apple, Pomegranate and Cranberry. The company expects to add several new flavors into its canning operation by the end of the year.
The company has produced its all natural, organic drinks in glass bottles, but wants to tap into the beverage market that prefers aluminum cans to glass bottles. Aluminum cans are more environmentally friendly because most of the 100 billion aluminum cans produced in the US each year are recycled.
The company said that the production facility in Portland will be making the products in 12 ounce cans and packaging them in 12 pack cardboard containers, similar to how soft drinks and canned beer is sold. This plant is expected to supply demand for the west coast, as well as, Hawaii and other market areas.
Robert Corr, president of Apple Rush, said: “We are very excited about starting to offer our beverages in this format. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality, refreshing beverages that are all natural and contain no refined sugars or artificial flavorings. Aluminum cans are ideal for preserving our slightly carbonated drinks and delivering them to our customers.”
Apple Rush is a producer of 100% organic juice beverages. The company markets its products through a distribution network of nearly 40 distributors throughout the US and in foreign markets. The company’s product of lightly carbonated Organic Apple Rush sparkling beverages currently has six mainstream flavors in glass bottles.
