HOW IT STARTED
By 2014 the fresh juice business in NZ was a growing trend and people were getting more daring with their mixes, so we tried adding seasonal greens (kale, celery, spinach, cucumber, silverbeet, etc). We personally feel a big difference when we drink green juices and we knew our customers would love them too.
In 2016 we changed our name to Living Juice, because that's what we make, that's what we love and that's what we sell!
In 2017 we added turmeric juice to our mix menu and became distributors of Zummo equipment within New Zealand. Very exciting!
Healthy people -healthy planet.
Fresh juice makes everything better :)
Our guiding principle is
Keep It So Simple.
"Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" is our mantra.
We now offer beautiful glass bottles, in three sizes (500ml, 750ml and 1 litre), at cost price of $2. Refills give you 80-100mls extra juice for free. We offer a $1 refund on empties (market sales only).
Our cups, straws and peel bin liners are made of biodegradable plant starch - gone in 90 days in a hot compost!
There's no single-use plastic in our operation (except ice bags and carrot bags which we recycle).
We sell our own handmade market bags.
Pigs, goats and cows love to eat our waste peel and pulp.
We have two lovely pig farmers down Drury way whom we deliver our green waste to each week.
We love bees. Without their furry little pollinating legs we'd have hardly any produce to juice! We donate monthly to SAVE OUR BEES - a wonderful NZ charity that educates widely.

Do you have a site to order from or a store in Auckland?"
“I come from Taupo every year for your juice ... oh and the lanterns too.”
"That's the best juice I've ever had! I don't normally like juice. It's usually too sweet for me."
