Beverages We are proud to be the world’s leading producer of cranberry beverages as well as the best-selling grapefruit juice brand in North America. Ocean Spray® is also the best-selling overall brand in the North American bottled juice category. Share on Facebook Share on Twitter The Cooperative introduced Ocean Spray® Cranberry Juice Cocktail in 1931, launching a lengthy history of innovation in the beverage market. Cranberry juice’s unique taste makes it perfect for blending and in 1963 we created the industry’s first juice blend, Cranapple® Cranberry Apple Juice Drink. Its success led to the addition of dozens of blends over the past five decades throughout the world. The Cooperative looks at local tastes and preferences for inspiration to makes its juice blends. Cran-Grape® Grape Cranberry Juice Drink and Cran-Raspberry® Cranberry Raspberry Juice Drink are long-time staples, but recently we’ve introduced Cran-Mango™ Cranberry Mango Juice Drink in both the US and UK, after it had already seen success in Mexico and France. Ocean Spray® was also one of the first major brands to offer reduced calorie juice beverages as early as the 1960s. Cranberries are naturally low in sugar which allows us to develop a wide range of product choices and reduced sugar options including Diet, and Light as well as no-sugar added 100% juice. The cooperative introduced our iconic Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice Cocktail in 1991 and is also proud to be the leader in the grapefruit juice market. In addition to our beverage innovation, Ocean Spray packaging engineers are largely responsible for how the juice aisles look across North America today. In 1982 the Cooperative introduced the first juice boxes in the US, and we were also the first juice manufacturer to sell drinks in plastic bottles.
