The History of Orchard Splash™
“If it comes from the people who make Carbotrol®, it must be great!” was our message when we launched a line of juices called Carbotrol 100 in the early 80’s. These juices were very different than they are today, but innovative for the times!
By the early 90’s, we added Bag In Box technology, invested in better flavors and juice concentrates, and began exploring aseptic processing versus hot fill. In 1997, we became Leahy-IFP after acquiring Institutional Foods Packing Company (IFP)—giving us aseptic processing equipment to manufacture our own juices.
In the early 2000’s, the Orchard Splash beverage brand was launched, producing Ready To Drink (RTD) aseptic juices and juice-based concentrates. In 2019, we gave Orchard Splash a facelift with a new logo and updated name, becoming Orchard Splash Beverages.
Today, we produce RTD, juice-based concentrates, portion-controlled juice cups, and PET Juice – as well as smoothies. Quite a history and one we are still writing. In some ways, our business has moved beyond an old slogan of ours: “A Better Juice in a Better Box for Less”, however, those fundamental principles are still very much an integral part of who we are. We humbly ask you to taste our care, ingenuity, and quality for yourself!
