Hallowe'en

Clocks go back, evenings get darker earlier and there is a definite chill in the air in the mornings and evenings.  With the first snow predicted for Scotland this weekend and flood warnings further south with milder temperatures, it is no wonder that our immune systems are a bit out of sorts.

Winter plays havoc with our immune system, as we go into hibernation mode and eat more carbs than usual, the central heating is on full blast drying out our skin and a lack of daylight can lead to SAD syndrome.  Our immune system, already working to keep us healthy, has to double its efforts during the Winter months.

Consumer Demand For Fresh Products Expands Role Of HPP

As demand for fresh food grows, more retailers are stocking their shelves with foods and beverages that are high pressure processed (HPP’d), a food processing method that enhances food safety, provides cleaner labels, and extends shelf life. The adoption of HPP by the beverage and food industry continues to climb at a double-digit pace.

Squeeze Wheatgrass Went to New York

The excitement started on the 7th November when Product Guru announced that we had won a trip to New York.

We had received a couple of emails from Product Guru introducing their concept and asking us to become part of it.  What they do is match products and buyers – aiming to take the stress out of getting your products in front of the right and interested buyers.  Described by a buyer from a well-known supermarket chain as “Tinder for retail buyers and product suppliers”!  We’ll let you know how that goes.

Anyway, the concept seemed interesting and in a “nothing ventured nothing gained” frame of mind, I signed up and added some of our Wild Power Wheatgrass branded products, totally unaware of the competition to win a trip for 2 to New York.

Well, we won the competition and it was a totally surreal moment when Simon, CEO of Product Guru, called to deliver the good news.  As December and January are two of our busiest months, we agreed to take the trip in February so that I could spend my birthday in New York.

The trip planning started in earnest during the Christmas holidays.  This is what we actually did.

Wheatgrass - It's What We Do!!

10-years ago I discovered the power of Wheatgrass and how its amazing benefits could change my health and wellbeing.

On 28th August 2010, I took an enormous leap of faith and starting growing, juicing and selling my own Wheatgrass shots mostly online and mostly to customers living in the UK.  At that time, I had to educate people/customers on the benefits of Wheatgrass as well as trying to grow my own Brand, Squeeze Wheatgrass.  At that time, I was the only person in Northern Ireland growing and juicing Wheatgrass to sell. 

We remain the only company in Northern Ireland to produce a ready to drink wheatgrass shot with extended shelf life (extended shelf life means that we’ve worked our magic and you don’t have to drink it as soon as it’s juiced and the benefits are just the same as if you went to a juice bar and bought a shot there).  It’s a little bit cheaper as well!  We package our Wheatgrass shots for convenience and to enable our customers to take them with them on travels, holidays or to work.  And we deliver all over the world.

Allergy Season - The Downside of Summer

Allergy season, a time of inconvenient runny noses, sneezing and watery eyes is upon us (with a vengenance in some cases)

Allergy attacks can occur because of a weak immune system. Wheatgrass, a nutrient-rich type of young grass, can help you build a stronger defence system against these allergens.
