2016 looking good for Cuddybridge
Borders drinks firm expects juicy sales in new year
Borders drinks firm Cuddybridge Apple Juice is celebrating a bumper year, which has seen husband and wife owners Graham and Julia Stoddart press over 300,000 apples, with sales doubling in the last 12 months.
The company, based in Innerleithen, makes hand produced juice free from flavourings, colourings, stabilisers and has no added water.
Mr Stoddart said: “This has been a momentous year: we’ve produced a brand new seasonal Discovery Apple Juice, provided apple juice to passengers at the launch of the new Borders Railway and even sent our apple juice to Italy.
“But if 2015 has been an exciting year, 2016 looks to be even better with the prospect of increased production and greater distribution.
“Cuddybridge Apple Juice is very simply a pressed apple and this year we’ve hand-pressed over 300,000. It’s great to see what is actually hard, physical work pay off with such strong sales.”
The juice is available in a range of independent retailers, bars and restaurants across Scotland.
The company started in 2007 and has gone on to win numerous awards including two stars at the Great Taste Awards and has approved supplier status from the Sustainable Restaurant Association.
