Spar Daily Deli_ISqueeze

Commercial juice machine provider Isqueeze is now operating in over 500 sites and is upgrading customers to a more compact model, the Citrocasa Fantastic Express.

Isqueeze claims that the countertop machine is suitable for smaller convenience spaces and is easier to maintain, offering fully automated cleaning of the fruit sieve, which can be done within seconds. The starting price for the Citrocasa Fantastic Express + cabinet and bottle dispenser is £5900 + VAT. It is also available on an ISqueeze branded base at £199 + VAT per month on a three-year contract hire deal, and the provider claims retailers can see a healthy 30-40% margin.

iSqueeze supply pre-labelled, self-sealing bottles in a range of size formats: 250ml (priced between £1.50 - £2.50); 330ml (priced between £2 - £2.80); 500ml (priced between £3 - £4) and 1 litre (priced between £4.25 - £6).

The company has machines in Co-op, Central Co-op and East of England Co-op stores, as well as in independent retailers across the country including Convenience Retailer of the Year 2020 Spar Y Maes in Pwllheli in Wales, Budgens Cranfield in Bedfordshire and TYS Retail in Peterborough.

Isqueeze provides self-serve juice machines for oranges, pomegranates and grapefruits, and the technology is currently being trialled to extend to further fruits including apples. All fruit is sustainably sourced, with zero waste, and bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic which are fully recyclable.
