Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company is getting consumers in a tropical mood as the company received a special accolade. Recently, the specialty juice company took home the title of Best New Beverage for its Guava Lemonade at the 50th annual Specialty Food Association’s (SFA) sofi™ Awards.
“We are honored that Specialty Food Association has recognized our Guava Lemonade with a best new product award,” said Natalie’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Marygrace Sexton. “Guava Lemonade brings a new, authentic twist to the summertime classic, and we can’t wait for our customers to start enjoying it.”
The award-winning beverage is made up of only four ingredients—fresh lemons, Guava purée, Florida pure cane sugar, and water. Honestly sourced and minimally processed, Guava Lemonade is free of preservatives and artificial ingredients. It is also rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, which can support healthy digestion and skin health, as explained in a press release.
At the event, Natalie’s Guava Lemonade competed with 2,000 other entries across 53 product categories in the anonymous tastings held by judges at Rutgers University’s Food Innovation Center.
“Winning a sofi award for our new Guava Lemonade further reflects Natalie’s commitment to excellence when it comes to producing the highest quality juices available,” said Natalie’s Vice President of Marketing, Natalie Sexton. “Our authentic juices bring ‘sip of freshness’ to our customers’ lives, and Guava Lemonade is a perfect example of this.”
The award-winning products will also be showcased during the 2022 Summer Fancy Food Show at the Javits Center in New York, New York, June 12–14.
