LAKEVILLE-MIDDLEBORO, Mass. (Jan. 15, 2013) – After literally creating the juice aisle over 80 years 

ago, Ocean Spray is taking a detour to the perimeter of the store.  Now chilled juice lovers can enjoy the

big, bold taste that only Ocean Spray delivers, with new Premium Cranberry and Blueberry Juice 

Beverages.

Ocean Spray’s new premium chilled beverages boast a more refreshing, fresh-fruit taste, providing 

consumers another way to enjoy the whole-body health benefits of the cranberry and fresh-picked taste of 

sun-ripened blueberries all year long. 

“We’ve been exploring a chilled juice option for years,” said Ken Romanzi, Senior Vice President and 

COO of Ocean Spray North America.  “Through a strategic alliance with Tropicana®, we were able to 

combine our cranberry and blueberry expertise with their chilled juice category expertise to create an 

exciting new juice platform.”  

Each delicious 8-ounce glass of Ocean Spray’s Premium Juice Beverages offers a full-day’s supply of 

Vitamin C with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Enjoy a refreshing glass morning, noon or 

night.

Premium Cranberry and Blueberry Juice Beverages are now available in a 59 oz. carafe beginning

January 2013 at a suggested retail price of $3.99.
