With a real emphasis on local products the Food Festival is set to showcase some fabulous drinks this year too! There are a real range of producers here from the non alcoholic to the full on G&T's. Empress Juices produces a wide range of really interesting flavours to really boost your taste buds! This is their story;
Having long dreamt of setting up her own business and being her own boss, Emily Hughes founded Empress Juices in 2015. Being someone who has always loved fresh fruit and vegetables, she felt there was a gap in the market for freshly pressed juices in the South West. After going into cafe after cafe and supermarket after supermarket, and being faced with a selection of juices which contained varying quantities of refined sugar, she saw an opportunity for a new business and hence Empress Juices was founded.
ALL NATURAL SWEETNESS
For many years there has been an ongoing debate about levels of refined sugar in food and drink. Soft drinks in particular are invariably consumed by young people who are understandably oblivious to the detrimental health effects of the excessive consumption of sugar. After seeing Jamie Oliver’s sugar campaign, and seeing the amount of teaspoons of sugar that go into various juices, Emily passionately believes that the natural occurring sugars of fruits and vegetables are just as sweet, but most importantly, so much healthier and refreshing than soft drinks and processed juices.
DELICIOUS AND HEALTHY
Empress juices are naturally delicious and good for you.If natural fruit juices, as opposed to refined sugar drinks, were tasteless and unappealing then there would be an understandable problem; but these natural juices are refreshing, deliciously tasty and so healthy.
That’s why Emily believes that every bag should contain an Empress Juice!
