Better Juice opens full-scale manufacturing plant to tackle sugar content in fruit juice

Located in Tel Aviv, Israel, the new plant will enable Better Juice to fulfill commercial orders from global juice producers and meet anticipated demand from other companies looking to develop lower-sugar juice-based products including beverages, jams, yogurt, ice cream, and more.

Better Juice is currently working with manufacturers to reduce the sugar content in various fruit juices including apple, orange, and pineapple juice products.

The new plant in Israel has the capacity to support sugar reduction of up to 250 million liters (66 million gallons) of juice per year. 

“This move marks a major leap forward in our commercialization efforts,”​ shared Gali Yarom, Better Juice co-founder and co-CEO.

“We project that the new plant will accommodate our production needs for the next four years. As interest and demand in our technology continue to flourish in the global fruit juice sphere, we will expand our production capabilities outside of Israel as well.” 

Earlier this year, Better Juice inked its first commercial deal with a US-based juice manufacturer where the startup integrated its enzymatic sugar reduction technology into the company’s manufacturing operations.

The new facility in Tel Aviv is equipped with an industrial fermenter and immobilization processor. The specialized equipment is used for growing and harvesting the beaded microorganisms used in producing Better Juice’s immobilized sugar-reducing enzymes.

The site also houses pilot labs and the company’s new headquarters
