JUNA continues to expand its footprint in London this month. Planet Organic will launch JUNA’s exotic four-flavour fruit drink range at its five centrally located stores in the capital. JUNA will be available at the UK’s largest fully certified organic supermarket starting Monday, February 18.

JUNA’s entry at Planet Organic follows the successful positioning of the brand in London’s prestigious food halls and high end coffee & sandwich shops. Selfridges listed JUNA in January last year, followed by John Lewis in July.

We look forward to offering Planet Organic shoppers JUNA’s exotic and exciting taste experiences, as well as a low-calorie alternative to smoothies.

JUNA among top emerging brands

Once a year, Fine Food Digest publishes its Best Brands Special Edition. This year JUNA is featured among the Best Emerging Brands of 2012/13 – thanks to the uniqueness of JUNA’s flavours in the UK market and their superior quality. Cheers to that!

Contributing food journalist Susan Low sums it up like this: “These pure-fruit tropical juices are astoundingly good. Three of the range of four juices, made from Colombian fruits and berries, taste like nothing else in the UK, and the fourth, mango juice, puts most other examples in the shade.

The distinction follows recent praise from the food critics of The Independent and the London Evening Standard.

Fine Food Digest magazine is the voice of the Guild of Fine Food to all independent delicatessens, farm shops, food halls and speciality food buyers in multiple retailers, cooperatives, symbol groups, cash & carries and speciality food producers. It has the largest paid for circulation of any speciality food magazine in the UK.

The Guild was formed in 1995 with a mission to create close links between suppliers and retailers in the independent food sector.

JUNA’s next ambition: Winning one of the Guild’s Great Taste Awards!

MORA ANDINA – the different blackberry


Yes, it’s a blackberry – but unlike the one you know. The Mora Andina, the Andean blackberry, is a botanical species found only in the Andes, with its own particularly refreshing taste! What’s so special about this berry?

JUNA’s Andean blackberry nectar may seem less exotic than the other flavours (“What’s that white Guanabana stuff anyway and how do you pronounce it?“), but the taste experience offered by the Mora Andina immediately transports the consumer to a distant and unfamiliar place.

Rubus glaucus, commonly known as Mora de Castilla or Mora Andina, grows in most Andean countries at altitudes of up to 3000 meters. As such, it’s a South American mountain berry rather than a tropical berry. In Colombia alone, nearly 15,000 farmers grow Mora Andina on small parcels of land, often in highly remote areas of the country.

The berry is rich in calcium and phosphorus and has potent antioxidant properties.

In addition, it has a low natural fruit sugar (fructose) content, which accents its uniquely refreshing, acidic and slightly bitter tones. As a consequence, with 47kcal per 100ml our Mora product is low in calories, far below the average smoothie on the market, despite a small addition of fructose to round off the taste.

At JUNA we’re proud to have the Mora Andina among our NEW FRUIT GENERATION!
