But, there was one major problem. The shelf life of these products was so limited that expansion would be difficult and our customers weren't able to keep our products in their fridges for longer than a few days.
We saw this problem as a challenge and quickly started to develop a new process for our products. Did you know that most companies pasteurize their juices, which can reduce the nutrient value by up to 70%! We did not want to nutrition. Using our cold-pressed, unpasteurized juice, we developed a unique product: the smoothie puck! We use a flash freezing process to form our juice into convenient pucks that last for months in the freezer. Freezing our products in this way maintains their nutrient-rich properties, and makes them fast, convenient, and YUMMY!
Our passion is to provide super fresh, extremely healthy, plant-based convenience foods to everyday superheroes like you, which is why we developed Nutes. We know you will love them as much as we do.
Saving the world through food.
We care about your health and care deeply about our planet. Our products are made in small batches and use the freshest ingredients. We try to source all of our produce locally and believe in supporting our Ontario farmers. We use reusable silicone molds to shape and freeze our smoothie pucks, and package our smoothie pucks in fully compostable bags. Our goal is to produce as little waste as possible.
Meet Electric Juice Factory.
You might notice that Nutes is owned by a company called Electric Juice Factory, or EJF. This was the name of our first venture in the juice world, and inspired the creation of Nutes. You might see the Electric Juice Factory name on your juice or smoothie pucks, which is still the name of Nutes parent company.

"We are big fans. I have used them regularly the last year or so. Very convenient when you have young kids running around and don't always have time to think of food to eat."
