The first and only Certified Organic Orange Juice in South Africa is now available in Certified Compostable Packaging.

The same unique product - SOGA Organic Frozen Orange Juice - now available in a 500ml bottle made from 100% sugarcane.

After extensive research, development and testing we are happy to announce that we have found a locally manufactured Biodegradable bottle made entirely from sugarcane, as an addition to our 250ml PET1 packaging. The new 500ml bottles are made from sugarcane and biodegrade 100% into compost (Certified Compostable). This new technology, known as Polylactide Acid (PLA) is as durable as PET plastic, has identical clarity and appearance to conventional water bottles yet it biodegrades in about 100 days instead of more than 2,000 years.

Not-from-concentrate (NFC) juices have that from the orchard, freshly squeezed taste. And, just like freshly squeezed juice, there's no water, sugar, or preservatives added, only 100 percent pure premium quality pasteurized orange juice. One sip, and you'll taste the difference.

The difference is in how the fruit is processed. Not-from-concentrate means the fruit is squeezed, the juice is pasteurized and then packaged. From-concentrate means the fruit is squeezed, the water is extracted, which produces a concentrated form similar to that you see in the frozen food department. At a later time the water is added back in and the juice is pasteurized and packaged.

Proper juice extraction is important to optimize the efficiency of the juice production process as well as the quality of the finished drink. The latter is true because oranges have thick peels, which contain bitter resins that must be carefully separated to avoid tainting the sweeter juice. There are two automated extraction methods commonly used by the industry. The process we use places the fruit between two metal cups with sharpened metal tubes at their base. The upper cup descends and the fingers on each cup mesh to express the juice as the tubes cut holes in the top and bottom of the fruit. The fruit solids are compressed into the bottom tube between the two plugs of peel while the juice is forced out through perforations in the tube wall. At the same time, a water spray washes away the oil from the peel. This oil is reclaimed for later use.
