Juice For Good

Nearly half of all Aussie-grown fruit and vegetables do not even make it off the farm. That’s a lot of unloved oranges! Keep an eye out for our Juice For Good machines – Australia’s first fresh orange juice vending machine which uses beautifully blemished oranges, saving millions of rejected oranges from being wasted, while also supporting Aussie farmers.

We’ve rescued over two million oranges that are not quite perfect on the outside, but perfectly good on the inside, and given them a new home inside these vending machines.
