The Apple Press® from Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand is on a mission to make the world’s best apple juice, from what are quite possibly the world’s best apples – this is apple juice like you’ve never tasted before. The judges of the 2018 New Zealand Food Awards recognized the hard work and innovation put in by The Apple Press® who were judged winners of the Non-alcoholic Beverage category.
Ross Beaton Co-Founder of The Apple Press said they were absolutely thrilled to win. ‘We are a still a new start-up so to win a national award after 5 months is just fantastic. We are really proud of our products and believe we make the world’s best apple juice, so this award means a lot” Beaton went on to thank The Apple Press team, their customer fan-base and supporters such as Callaghan Innovation, T&G Global and NZTE.
FoodHQ was proud to sponsor the category and we are excited for them to continue to share the pleasure of drinking a Hawke’s Bay apple with the world.
Dr. Abby Thompson CEO of FoodHQ was impressed by the quality and care that goes into the products produced by The Apple Press. Dr. Thompson commented that “this product demonstrates innovation, creativity and tasty NZ grown produce combined with a passionate team with a clear focus.”
The Apple Press® apples are given the 5-star treatment, hand-picked at their peak ripeness, cold pressed just once, then bottled delicious for you. They press from individual varieties like Jazz™, Braeburn and Royal Gala because they reckon, just like wine, every apple has its own taste characteristics. They also sustainable source the cosmetically blemished apples others reject, and can trace their apples back to their orchards of origin.
The best apple juice in the world will be available nationwide in New Zealand so keep an eye out at your local store!
