Soft drinks brand Vegesentials has secured a listing in 100 Tesco stores.

The raw fruit and vegetable beverages will roll out on 15 September in a 250ml bottle (rsp: £1.99).

Patience Arinaitwe-Mugadu, who founded Vegesentials with her husband Andrew in 2012, said: “Tesco have offered Vegesentials a fantastic opportunity to continue to grow a young brand that we believe is adding immense value to the health and well-being of consumers across the country.

“The Vegesentials ‘Half Fruit and Half Vegetable’ drink range idea was born out of the desire to blend passion for tasty fresh food and drink into a nutrient-dense juice that gives a natural vitamin and mineral lift, with less sugar, and calories than typical fruit-only drinks.” The beverages are cold pressed to retain nutrients, she added.

Vegesentials is currently stocked in retailers including Waitrose, Booths, Whole Foods, Planet Organic and Ocado.
