TORONTO, June 8, 2015 /CNW/ - Launching in June 2015 to coincide with the Dragon Boat Festival and Independence Day (Philippines), St. Maarten Juice Co. announces a new juice – Calamansi. Calamansi is available in two ready to drink formats: (i) fresh 1.75L gable top carton and (ii) 473ml single serve glass bottle.
Calamansi is known by many names throughout the world, including Kalamansi, Philippine lemon, Panama orange, Golden lime and Chinese orange. Calamansi is often considered to be the most important citrus fruit in the Philippines and is widely grown throughout Southeast Asia. The fruit is usually seen in its green state and is very sour however the peel adds sweetness when the fruit is consumed whole. Calamansi is harvested by clipping the stems of the fruit off the tree to ensure its thin skin does not tear. Once picked the entire fruit, minus seeds, can be used by squeezing, pureeing or juicing for a variety of products. The fruit is widely considered to have many health benefits including those resulting from a high concentration of Vitamin C.
"St. Maarten Calamansi (1.75L & 473ml) has an original taste made from Calamansi imported directly from the Philippines. Tasters will note delicate blends of Mandarin orange, Kumquat and Lime in its flavour profile. We are launching this beverage just in time for summer and St. Maarten Calamansi aims to build upon the limeade/lemonade segment in the marketplace. This unique beverage brings the fresh taste of Calamansi to Canada" states Naz Notarfonzo President of AllJuice International Inc.
St. Maarten Calamansi is a little sweet, a little tart and completely refreshing with no artificial colours or flavours.
The suggested retail price is $2.99 for 1.75L and $1.49 for 473ml bottles.
