The British company B.fresh, known for its healthy products and attention to customer service, has introduced a new juice, #greenglow, designed especially for those who are passionate about a healthy lifestyle and who enjoy green juices.

The new juice is comprised of cucumber (30%), iceberg lettuce (22%), romaine lettuce (19%), spinach (15%), kale (5%), lemon (5%) and ginger (4%). It is an excellent source of vitamin K and Potassium, providing partakers with a nutrient boost.

The company is run by Philip Maddocks, a third generation farmer in Shropshire, where he cultivates lettuce, spinach and other greens. All the juices are made from fresh vegetables or fruit, cold-pressed and bottled in the company's own juicery.

B.fresh takes pride in producing juices from freshly grown produce rather than from concentrates. Washed in natural spring water, vegetables or fruit go through a cold press, turning into a smooth pulp free juice, before later being mixed according to the company's recipes. It is this cold press technology that enables B.fresh to create its vitamin- and mineral- rich juices.

While iceberg lettuce is nutrient rich, and ginger adds a unique biting flavor, spinach is high in B vitamins, as well as vitamins A, C, and K. Spinach is recognized as one of the world's healthiest vegetables due to its nutrient richness.

The U.S. dominates in the global spinach trade. In 2014, The U.S. exported 36 thousand tonnes of spinach totaling 116 million USD, 14% over the previous year. Its primary trading partner on the global spinach market was Canada, where it supplied 96.6% of its total spinach exports in value terms, accounting for essentially all of Canada's total imports.

From 2007 to 2014, the U.S. was a net exporter of spinach. Over this period, exports consistently exceeded imports in value terms. However, in physical terms, the difference was less pronounced.

Spain and Italy were among the other main global suppliers of spinach in 2014. The fastest growing exporters from 2007 to 2014 were Spain (+19.3% per year) and Canada (+27.1% per year). Even with all these competitive inroads, the U.S. was able to strengthen its leading position in the global export structure.

In addition to Canada, the U.S.'s top 4 trading partners in 2014 were Mexico, Iceland, Trinidad and Tobago and the United Arab Emirates, with a combined nearly 100% share of U.S. spinach exports. The share of Mexico increased slightly (+3.1 percentage points), while the share of Canada illustrated negative dynamics (-2.4 percentage points).
