Juice company La Juiceria Sdn Bhd has seen a healthy dose of growth thanks to the online sales of its products after hitting the market about a year ago.

The company with its head office in Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur, now has three physical retail outlets in Kuala Lumpur. Two opened for business last month and another opens this month.

La Juiceria managing director Anabelle Co-Martinent said the outlets aimed to make the company’s juices more accessible to people, especially those on the go.

“It is easier to get healthy. With up to 20 flavours to choose from, we make it exciting for you to quench your thirst, as well as quench your body with nutrients.

“Busy people can even make these nutrient-dense juices their meal replacements.

“It’s also the easiest way to get your dose of the much-needed servings of vegetables and fruits, bottled up in a delicious blend,” she said.

The company’s outlets are located in Sri Hartamas and Mid Valley Megamall.

Co-Martinent, 35, said they had decided to expand their business to include retail sails after getting encouraging feedback on their juices over the past year.

She and her two business partners — Kong Len Win and Hong Theng Lok, both 31, mooted the online business at the end of last year.

The company’s online sales and delivery were confined to the Klang Valley initially before expanding to Johor and Penang four months ago.

Co-Martinent said six bottles of juices for a one-day cleanse programme are priced at RM89. A customer who orders two sets of juices for a two-day cleanse programmes would have to pay RM178.

She said customers from Johor and Penang also had to pay RM25 for a cooler bag and a RM60 delivery charge for those from Johor and Penang.

The delivery charges in the Klang Valley vary between RM10 and RM50 per delivery.

To ensure freshness, she said each delivery is for a maximum of two sets of juices for a two-day-cleanse programme.

She advised those going for more than the a one-day cleanse programme to order their juices online at www.lajuiceria.com.my.

The retail outlets have limited stocks for one-day juice cleanses, she says, adding that the physical outlets cater more for people who wanted to do a quick one-day cleanse.

According to Co-Martinent, a person can take a minimum of one set or six bottles of juices for a day as meal replacements or a one-day cleanse programme.

The set, she adds, is packed with more than 20 ingredients, all derived from vegetables, fruits, nuts and spices.

“The cold-pressed juices are made with a ratio of about 70% vegetables and 30% fruits,” Co-Martinent said.

She said two outlets have received an overwhelming response since their opening.

Co-Martinent said the cold-pressed juicing business worldwide had experienced strong growth numbers over the past two years.

“This is mainly because many people have experienced it and swear by the benefits, with results such as weight loss, clearer skin and increased energy, to name a few,” she said.
