New juicery set to grow in Kelowna

Local Pressery will launch Dec. 22

A new juicery is digging its roots into the Okanagan.

Local Pressery will open just ahead of the new year with a focus on partnering and collaborating with local agriculture and Okanagan orchards to infuse with their products.

“The commercialization and preservative usage with produce is too commonplace nowadays,” said Local Pressery’s Akash Agrawal.

“We wanted to go back to community roots and provide an all-natural, organic product that not only tastes fantastic but also has health benefits beyond that of fruits and vegetables alone.”

Health products and juices will be available in the form of a subscription service in Kelowna and other parts in the Okanagan. Initial products from Local Pressery include activated charcoal beverages and Golden Milk, a turmeric-based vegan feature drink.

Agrawal, alongsside partners Aahat Sajnani and Brandon McCallum, have enlisted a team of registered dieticians, exercise and health specialists to make up the Local Pressery team and increase available health options in the Okanagan.

The official Local Pressery launch is scheduled for Dec. 22.
