ShopRite Stores to Offer Red Jacket Cold-Pressed Juice

GENEVA, N.Y. — Red Jacket juice, a premium line of 100 percent cloudy fruit juices, cold-pressed at Red Jacket Orchards in New York’s Finger Lakes region expands into more than 220 ShopRite stores.

Perfecting the art of fresh juicing for more than five decades, third generation family-owned Red Jacket Orchards is now bringing ShopRite consumers in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania access to deliciously healthy unfiltered apple-based juice blends. Available options include: 32oz bottles of Strawberry, Raspberry, and Fuji Apple.

“For decades we’ve married health and exceptional taste within each bottle of our freshly crafted juices,” noted Brian Nicholson, a third generation owner of Red Jacket Orchards. “Unlike our competitors, we believe remarkable flavor and nutrition mingle naturally when simplicity and respect for the fruit is top-of-mind.”

Cloudy, cold-pressed, unfiltered, flash-pasteurized, Red Jacket juices contain no additives and are never crafted from concentrate. Numerous studies demonstrate that 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).

Garnering notable media attention from coast to coast, Red Jacket Orchards is rated “best-on-the-planet” by Zagat Gourmet Food Guideand was dubbed “an uncut jolt to the brain” by New York magazine. Other media enthusiasts include: Martha Stewart’s “American Made,”The New York Times, Phil Lempert SuperMarket Guru, BevNet and more.
