Chegworth Valley Juices launches new varieties after investing in its orchard

Kent-based Chegworth Valley Juices has launched an organic range featuring pear juice and single-variety Bramley, Cox and Discovery apple juices.

The hand-pressed juice range is made from apples grown in its orchard, which has had more than 11,000 trees planted in it over the past few years.

The new range also features an apple and beetroot variety and was due to be launched earlier this week at the Organic and Natural Products Europe exhibition in London's Olympia.

Producer David Deme said: "We are passionate about the range of juices that we now produce on our family farm in Kent."

He added: "With two generations of experience in growing the best fruit the English countryside can offer, we recently decided to take the next natural step of making pure fruit juices where we are in control of the quality from blossom to bottling.

"This guarantees we are producing the finest product we can and believe our juices to be the best on the market in terms of quality, taste and authenticity."

He added that the firm has invested in intensive orchards, which has seen the tress planted a metre apart on a post-and-wire system with each tree attached to a bamboo cane.

The business has also invested in a larger press to help meet the increased demand for its juices.
