The decision to use juice in a beverage creates complexity that requires specific expertise to manage. How much juice can be used and still cold fill? What label claims can be made once juice is added? How can juice be used to add marketing value yet still maintain reasonable costs? How can products be developed that always taste the same despite seasonal variations inherent in the juice? When working with juice, brand owners need to be certain that their development partner has the experience and skill sets necessary to address the myriad of challenges that working with juice presents.
