Monday, October 29, 2012
BCIC would like to send a BIG CONGRATULATIONS out to Tabletree Juice of Creston BC for taking home the ‘Best Pure Juice Product 2012’ award for their Tabletree Black Cherry Juice at the 17th annual World Juice Conference in Barcelona, Spain October 16th.
We told you about Tabletree Juice back in 2010 when the cherry farming husband and wife duo of L.W. Truscott Farms entered BCIC’s Commercialization of Agriculture Technologies Competition (CAT Competition) that assisted them to successfully expand and change the direction of their business to the production of cherry juice.
Following is a news release issued by Tabletree October 28, 2012.
Tabletree Juice of Creston, B.C. wins big at the World Juice Awards in Barcelona, Spain.
On Tuesday October 16, 2012, third generation Creston, B.C. cherry growers Susan and Gary Snow won the award for "Best Pure Juice Product 2012" for their Tabletree Black Cherry Juice at the 17th annual World Juice Conference in Barcelona, Spain.
The World Juice Conference, organized by Food News, a prestigious juice industry publication, attracts large scale growers, producers and processors, suppliers and transport companies to discuss topics covering all aspects of the world of juice. Attendance peaked this year at 350 with representatives from all the major giants from over 60 countries in the world.
Tabletree would like to take this time to thank Food News for inviting us to such a wonderful event and for giving us the opportunity to share our story and our juice with the world.
This is not the first time a Canadian company has won at the World Juice Conference. Nova Scotia's own, Van Dyck's Blueberry Juice won an award there in 2005. Tabletree follows in their footsteps to put not only Tabletree on the world map, but to raise awareness and introduce the world to Creston, British Columbia, Canada, and the Canadian Cherry Industry as well.
Another goal of Tabletree while in Europe was to meet with a Researcher in Dijon, France. Tests have been performed on Tabletree juice and its byproducts to assess its role in inhibiting and stopping inflammation. It is understood there are very few compounds that can do this, and from the initial results, Tabletree is one of those compounds. More definitive work is needed, but it is the hope of Tabletree to continue working with this company to complete the testing, resulting in the publication of a paper detailing the results of the research.
