Manufacturer and Supplier of Fresh Fruit Juice and Smoothies in South Yorkshire
- Well-established with excellent reputation
- Loyal customer base
- Huge growth opportunity
- Friendly, professional team
- Secure contracts in place
Newly brought to the market is the opportunity to purchase a wholesale manufacturer and supplier of 100% freshly squeezed juices and smoothies. The delicious drinks are produced from the business’s base in South Yorkshire before being distributed to restaurants, bars, hotels, and major supermarkets.
Since its entrepreneurial beginnings several years ago in a coffee shop, the business has grown into a successful brand which thrives on its innovation and commitment to quality. Customers value the unique positioning of an unbeatable shelf life without compromising on premium quality, consequently garnering numerous industry awards and accreditations for the brand.
The company is responsible for the entire production process and prides itself on creating the beverages from scratch by carefully hand-picking the fruit, hygienically squeezing each one before pasteurising with its innovative Advanced Microwave Technologies Limited, and then distributing the products to clients. The business is unique in its use of microwave volumetric liquid heating technology, therefore enabling the brand to achieve an impressive refrigerated shelf life of six weeks- four times greater than any competitor. The business prioritises quality above all else, as demonstrated in its uniquely gentle process which ensures the conservation of flavour, quality, and natural health benefits, whilst also guaranteeing the products remain completely free from added sugars or sweeteners, colours, and preservatives.
Situated in the residential town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, the company’s premises are owned freehold by the current owner which consequently gives excellent flexibility to the buyer. The new owner will have the choice of utilising the existing premises by agreeing a lease with the vendor, or they may relocate the business to another setting of their choosing.
The sale price incorporates all equipment and assets, thus equipping the buyer with the means to have a strong start to their ownership. This includes all manufacturing equipment, a variety of marketing material, packaging, sales presentations, brochures, and imagery. Other intellectual property includes the product specifications and recipes, test data, analysis and certifications, consumer testing analysis, customer and supplier databases, a business plan, website, domain, and social media accounts. Additionally, a transitional period is available to ensure the continued success of the business.
This is a prime opportunity for a buyer who is already experienced with working in the food industry and looking for a new challenge, but especially those who are enthusiastic about the increased demand for healthy food and beverages. It may also be a great investment for an individual with a portfolio of businesses or for an already established company wanting to expand.
The business has experienced strong success so far, with clients including Asda, Aldi, Gleneagles Hotel, St. Andrews University, and The Old Course Hotel. However, the business’s growth would benefit from numerous strategies. For example, it would be a strong candidate for a social media campaign that seeks to spread brand awareness and increase the number of clientele, curating a visually strong presence with quality copy across multiple social platforms. The business could also be developed through the new owner spending significant time within the business in a hands-on capacity.
