Vegetable Juice Pricing and Costs
Pricing out vegetable-based juice for your businessDoctors recommend adults get at least two to three cups of vegetables a day, but since few Americans actually eat that many, some are beginning to drink the recommended amount, making it attractive for your food business to look into vegetable juice pricing and costs. And why not? Vegetable juice is a tasty alternative to the many available less healthful drinks like sodas and sports drinks, and it is packed with vitamins and minerals.
Whether you want to sell single-serving bottles or kitchen-ready cans to your customers, you need canned vegetable juice suitable for your commercial kitchen or you even need vegetable juice powder for your health food store, there are plenty of vegetable juice companies and distributors to choose from. But before you begin buying, consider which type of juice you're most likely to sell and what it will cost you. You may need:
1. Single-serving veggie juice bottles like V8 juice,
2. Large cans of raw vegetable juice, such as is used in cooking,
3. Or organic vegetable juice powders, as is found in health food stores?
Purchase single and mixed vegetable juice for individuals
Buy kitchen-ready cans from a vegetable juice wholesalerIf you need cans of tomato juice, such as a consumer or commercial kitchen would buy for cooking, wholesale costs depend not just on quantities purchased but also the brand. For example, Campbell's Tomato Juice in a 46-oz. can is about $20 to $25 for a case of 12, while the same amount of 46-oz. cans of Red Gold Tomato Juice runs closer to $25 to $30.
Consider juice powders from vegetable juice distributorsVegetable juice powders are often found in health food stores or food businesses catering toward those who consume health foods. To use, you or your customer must simply mix the powder with an appropriate amount of water. Organic beet juice powder costs about $18 to $25 per pound wholesale, while organic powdered carrot juice is $14 to $20 wholesale and organic spinach powder is $18 to $20.
