Coldpress fruit juice is a new drink from Closed Loop Foods made from 100% fruit juice with four times the shelf life of conventional chilled fruit juices.
Having launched successfully and being stocked immediately by in excess of 200 Waitrose outlets and being positioned competitively as a credible alternative to the ordinary range of juices Coldpress is fast expanding across the United Kingdom.
Coldpress provides a more thirst quenching, better tasting juice that is much high nutrition value than it’s competitors. By using a cold pressure as opposed to boiling the juices the brand retains a lot of its existing aromas and textures that the heated juices do not hold. Its unique bottle design sees it being an exciting and breath of fresh air in what is a fairly crowded market in the UK.
Coldpress is available in 250ml and 750ml bottles designed for the consumer market and retail routes as well as the new ‘Bag in a Box’ product that is far more cost effective to the restaurant, bars, clubs and other outlets.
Coldpress Fruit Juice is available in seven flavours that include – Pink Lady, Golden Delicious, Valencia Orange, Apple & Lemon, Apple & Passionfruit, Apple & Raspberry, Apple & Strawberry.

We consume it, we spread the seed, more fruit grows, everyone’s happy.
It’s in Nature’s best interests to make it as enticing as possible and she’s certainly done so. Fruit is a real treat that often needs no embellishment and is resoundingly, unequivocally good for us.
Mark Diacono’s first River Cottage handbook, Veg Patch, was a joy: a thorough, yet accessible guide to raising homegrown produce that has established Mark as one of the foremost thinkers and writers on the subject of growing what you eat.
Now he’s turned his attention to fruit and, as you’ll discover, has written another confidence-inspiring, anxiety-reducing little gem . . . or perhaps that should be little peach.
While there’s been a revolution in the growing of vegetables and herbs in the UK in recent years, home fruit growing has lagged a little behind. I suspect this is because there’s a certain air of mystery attached to growing fruit, a sense that specialist knowledge and hard-won skills must be acquired before one can make a go of it.
In his gardening courses at River Cottage, Mark banishes these myths and gives people the confidence to start producing their own berries, apples, plums, melons and apricots.
This book will do the same thing. As Mark explains, fruit wants to grow – you just have to let it – and he’s here to show you how.
Whilst we are all attempting to stick to our New Year’s resolutions to lose those last few pounds and keep them off this winter, it doesn’t mean we cannot indulge in something sweet and tasty when we fancy it. We all crave a little sweetness in our diet now and again and fruit is an excellent way of getting part of your five a day whilst satisfying our sweet cravings.
Many of us may be suffering from the winter blues at the moment. But for those of us with a nagging sweet tooth, going ‘cold turkey’ does not have to be an option, as it’s possible to balance our taste for sweetness without having to compromise on our healthy lifestyle. The beautiful country of South Africa has some fantastic fruits available this winter, to keep you warm, full and healthy, including plums, peaches, nectarines and grapes.
So for those of us looking to satisfy our hunger pangs, fruit can provide a natural alternative to sugar that satisfies our sweet cravings without being too high in calories.
Here to help us is Sophie Michell, author, chef and presenter of Channel 4’s Cook Yourself Thin, with several great recipe ideas. From delicious roasted brown sugar plums to chargrilled nectarines, there are a variety of sweet fruit recipes that can provide that sugar fix the healthy way.
