We are proud to partner with AIJN once more to also turn the 2016 edition into an impactful and relevant event. In light of mounting pressure on the industry, it is ever more important to discuss challenges, opportunities and to develop strategies to strengthen the role of juice as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle.

    A key milestone towards this goal will be the inauguration of the “Fruit Juice matters” campaign which has been designed to lift the reputation of juice across Europe. Tetra Pak has been working alongside producers and Citrus BR to make this campaign a success and to re-establish a balanced view on juice as a prerequisite for a healthy development of the market in Europe.
