Grove Juice moves into the Asian market.

AUSTRALIA: The Queensland based fruit juice grower and distributor, producers of 500,000 litres of juice per week, is maximising the benefits of the new Free Trade Agreements (FTA’s) now in place with Japan, Korea and China. The Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA), for example has reduced apple juice tariffs to between 7.6% and 13.6% from between 19.1% and 34% and will continue to reduce these tariffs annually until 2024.

Andrew Ross, Grove Juice CEO, explained that the launch of the FTAs, the company’s readiness to export, a good deal of market research and planning, and looking at the opportunities with Austrade played a key part in getting them to where they are now in Japan and Korea.
