The story of Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company begins in 1990. Marygrace Sexton, founder of the company, married a fourth-generation citrus grower. With dreams of producing fresh squeezed juice, Sexton decided to pursue this idea and start a company. Named after Sexton’s daughter Natalie, the company became family-owned and operated.
After selling the first products to Carnival Fruit in Miami, Florida, the business began to grow. Starting with humble beginnings, today, the business has expanded into a larger facility that houses a state-of-the-art juice production plant.
Nationally recognized for producing America’s Best Tasting Fresh Florida Juices, Natalie’s juice blends can now be found in over 30 states and 32 countries around the world. Certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, the Sexton family continues to farm and support the local and global communities.
Wanting to enrich the lives of every consumer, Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company is dedicated to producing authentic, superior quality, Florida citrus juices.
For more than 25 years, the Sexton family has been squeezing the highest quality fruits and vegetables sourced from the best farmers in America. The fruit used in each juice blend is grown from the Sexton groves.
There are more than 15 different varieties of juice cultivated from Florida oranges every month of the year. In addition to the orange varieties, the company also uses 11 different varieties of Florida grapefruits. Each featuring a unique color, flavor, and aroma, every blend contains a variation unlike any other. As the company infuses each juice with a certain flavor profile, every Natalie’s juice beverage uses the sweetest, most mature Florida fruit available.
By taking advantage of each seasonal fruit variation, Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company is able to ensure freshness. To maintain nutritional value, each juice blend is made to order in small batches daily. Gourmet pasteurized at the minimum optimal temperature, the fresh squeezed juices go through minimal processing.
Preserving the integrity of the juice, the freshness of the juice is indicated by its shelf life. With each product fit with a 26-day shelf life, it confirms that the product has not been through industrial processing and has added preservatives. To maintain quality, it is recommended that customers keep Natalie’s juice blends refrigerated at 38°F.
As mentioned previously, there are no preservative or additives of any kind in Natalie’s juices. Environmentally thoughtful, the company has managed to hold the smallest carbon footprint in the juice industry. Using 100% recyclable packaging, the bottles, caps, and box tape is made in America and completely biodegradable. To further sustainable practices, Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company uses the raw fruit peels that remain after processing to feed local cattle.
Dedicated to improving the environment and quality of life, Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company loves to give back. In addition to providing customers with freshly squeezed juice, the company also donates more than 16,000 gallons of juice each year.
Given to select worthy causes, the company works alongside different charitable organizations. Impacting the community and serving local businesses, the company has taken the opportunity to make a difference and improve lives.
To encourage a healthy lifestyle, the company keeps the processing simple in order to manufacture clean label products. Infusing beets, strawberries, mangoes, pineapple, carrots, tomatoes, celery, every Natalie’s juice blend is free of added sugars.
Because the sugar content found in Natalie’s juice blends are naturally found in the fruit, the nutritional value of orange juice remains intact. A healthy alternative to other fruit drinks, the orange juice contains a variety of essential vitamins and minerals.
Featuring Vitamin C, Potassium Folate (Folic Acid), Calcium, Vitamin B6, Thiamin, and more, the fruit juice used by Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice works to improve health. Used for thousands of years, historical records show that oranges are one of the most popular citrus fruits.
Beneficial in both whole and juice form, the fruit has shown to boost immune function. The nutrients found in oranges reduce the signs of aging, protect against chronic disease and illness, and detoxify the body. By lowering cholesterol levels, it reduces inflammation and improves circulation.
