Hey waste-fighting warriors! It’s been a wild month and a half, but we’re excited to be back on the blog! From new hires to new products and lots of events and laughs in between, here are our Ugly Juice updates and what we’re looking forward to!
We’ve hired awesome people!
We’re growing! We were sad to say goodbye to our summer intern, Cambi, who got this blog off it’s feet, but I am excited to be filling her shoes! I’m Emma and I’m thrilled to take on UJ’s marketing and branding! With that being said, we are working on amping up our marketing and updating our labels. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Send us an email!
We’ve also added our amazing operations director, Ryan, who is an excel-wizard and keeps us all organized. And Pat is our newest sales master who works around the clock to promote our waste-saving mission! Brett is our go-to guy for just about anything...catch him delivering juice, working on outreach and drying fruit!
New Ugly Product!
We are excited to announce our newest product line...Individual Fruit Pack deliveries! Each pack saves over 5lbs of imperfect produce from going to waste. We’ve even introduced 12oz juices exclusively for the pack. The packs include a 12oz green juice of the day, a health shot, a dried fruit pouch (made by UJ), and a ReGrained Bar! And the best part? They’re delivered by bike to your SF doorstep! Show us your commitment to #EndFoodWaste by ordering today!
We were at the Autumn Harvest Celebration
A couple weeks ago, we participated in the Sustainable Food & Beverage Autumn Harvest Celebration at Patagonia SF. Other attendees at the event were: Patagonia Provisions, ReGrained, Imperfect Produce, Mission Pie, The Midwife and the Baker, and Anderson Valley Brewing. At the event, we passed out juice samples, Grant spoke on the panel and we got to mingle with other like-minded companies. We’re looking forward to similar events in the future!
