We also prepare personalized cleanses, and for our business customers JuiceBox Organic offers a variety of subscription options for "vitaminisation" in the office - regular deliveries once a week or more.


Why "organic "?


More and more people are trying to eat consciously, consuming clean food, from clear origin. The interest in organically grown products is rapidly increasing. More and more people become aware of how beneficial fresh juices are, but the truth is that the benefit is the greatest when we only ingest vitamins, nutrients and enzymes without the cocktail of residual pesticides, fertilizers and chemicals that are used in conventional production.


In the hectic everyday life, it is becoming increasingly challenging to eat healthy. At the same time, it is no longer a secret that our health and working capacity is influenced to a large extent by the "fuel" that we put in our bodies. JuiceBox Organic is our way to contribute to making it easier to enjoy healthy, clean and unprocessed food in our busy everyday lives.
