    Default Naked juice...

    Has anybody heard through the pipeline about any independent Pepsi bottlers(lets say like PBG) actually distributing this delicious stuff?

    That makes no sense. Why would PBG invest in a fleet of reefer trucks for one product line?

    Nothing from the brass at PBG that I have heard in an official sense anyways. Who knows the bottom feeders such as myself are always the last to find out anything at work, I usually find out about new PBG products on Bevnet before I find out from PBG.
    If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today.

    Fusion your not making sense. Why would PBG need a fleet of reefer trucks at all? Its one new product line although strong it wouldn't need a fleet of trucks for it unless I am misunderstanding the delivery process.

    Naked Juice is not shelf stable in its' current packaging. It must be refrigerated during transportation to the accounts.

    I'm surprised you didn't know that.

    The same goes for most of the juice/juice products you see in the cases in the produce sections in supermarkets (Odwalla, POM, and so on).

    Actually I wasn't entirely aware of that but you make a good point. I never researched the storage/delivery procedures for it..

    So that would for sure add into the equation of it higher retail cost.
    Good observation as usual,Fusion.
    I have been scared off this catagory because, in my mind (right or wrong)
    the price point is to high for my pockets. Even me a complete "drink junkie",
    I just can't get myself to plunk down 3 to 4 dollars for
    a 20oz glass of "premium juice". That's just me.
    Don't worry, be happy. Meher Baba
