I honestly am a sucker for fresh squeezed juices. They give you nutrition and taste amazing. However, that can be just store-bought regular juice.
A Toronto local business, Classic Juice Co., drastically changes the game. This is juice is not just a beverage, but a lifestyle. Let’s talk about this “for everyone” mindset that Classic Juice co. has. They prioritze their community, which is a beautiful thing that many name-brand and international big companies fail to do. Classic Juice co. believes in making juice for everyone, whether it be the kid around the block or grandma and grandpa. They believe in face-to-face interaction, which is difficult now with COVID-19, but the idea is still very present and actually the bond we need within communities now. This welcoming ideology makes the products so much more special.
Now let’s talk about the products. “Cold-Pressed” is not just a marketing word here; it means serious non-stop quality work and thought put into these juices. Cold-pressing enables the flavours to be in tact as well as the nutrients in the fruits to be in the juices. If we’re talking about the technology, cold-pressing allows the nutrients to live in the drinks for a maximum of 5–7 days. This is a starking contrast to the 4–6 hours that the nutrients are live in to other mainstream juice blends. The juices are made daily to ensure freshness and to be of quality to be served to their important community.
