Welch's Introduces New Farmer's Pick Product Line

Welch's has announced the introduction of Farmer's Pick product line. Available in Concord grape, Mango and Blackberry flavors, Farmer's Pick contains nothing artificial and delivers an authentic fruit taste experience. Unlike most 100% fruit juices in the shelf-stable juice aisle, Welch's new line contains unfiltered juice, which provides body, aroma and flavor, and brings more real fruit goodness to every glass. Welch's 100% Grape Juice is made with Concord grapes, grown in North America by Welch's family farmers, that are picked at their peak of freshness and pressed into juice within eight hours of harvesting. Farmer's Pick is available nationally in the juice aisle in 46 ounce bottles, at a suggested retail price of $3.29.
