A new study by Organic Monitor finds that the European organic
juices market has been expanding at over 20 per cent a year since
1998 and by the end of the year, sales of organic juices in Europe
are projected to reach €90 million.
Germany's Eckes group has announced plans to sell its alcoholic
beverage business in order to focus on its fruit juice operations,
citing increasing competition and declining margins as its main
reasons for the sale.
