Ocean Spray is an agricultural cooperative of growers of cranberries and grapefruit headquartered in Middleborough, Massachusetts. It currently has over 700 member growers (in Massachusetts, Wisconsin, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington, Florida, British Columbia and other parts of Canada, as well as Chile). The cooperative employs about 2,000 people, with sales of $2.2 billion in fiscal year 2013. Their products include cranberry sauce, fruit juices, fruit snacks, and dried cranberries. As fresh cranberries are hard and bitter, about 95% of cranberries are processed and used to make cranberry juice and sauce. Raw cranberries have moderate levels of vitamin C, dietary fiber and the essential dietary mineral, manganese, as well as other essential micronutrients in minor amounts.
On October 13, 2017, Ocean Spray announced that it has added two beverage lines to its extensive product portfolio: Ocean Spray Organic 100% Juice Blends and Ocean Spray Unsweetened Pure 100% Cranberry Juice.
Ocean Spray Organic 100% Juice Blends are the perfect combination of organically grown North American cranberries from family farms, with other organic fruit juices. Organic 100% Juice Blends contain no added sugars, preservatives or artificial flavors and are available in three delicious flavors: Cranberry, Cranberry Apple and Cranberry Blueberry. All Ocean Spray Organic 100% Juice Blends are non-GMO2 and feature the USDA Organic seal (certified organic by QAI). Each flavor has 100% Vitamin C per serving and each 8-ounce glass is equivalent to one cup of fruit. An 8-ounce glass of these blends contains 100-130 calories, depending on the flavor.
For the pure, authentic taste and unique health benefits of the cranberry, Ocean Spray’s Unsweetened Pure 100% Cranberry Juice contains no added sugars, artificial flavors, preservatives or colors and is non-GMO2. Each one-liter bottle provides the health benefits from the juice of more than 900 cranberries! An 8-ounce serving is only 60 calories and is equivalent to one cup of fruit to support daily nutritional needs. The juice can be enjoyed on its own or added to smoothies or sparkling water for an extra health boost.
Ocean Spray Organic 100% Juice Blend and Ocean Spray Unsweetened Pure 100% Cranberry Juice are available nationally.
