Home / Events / Hatchery Networking – Juice Culture in Chicago

Juice is one of the most competitive segments of the beverage industry. Join us to hear from a panel of juice industry entrepreneurs and experts as we dig into juice culture in Chicago!

About the panelists:

Kristina Sciarra

Harvest Juicery’s inception was Kristina Sciarra’s brainchild after spending time working in both the restaurant and wellness industries. After seeing her own health benefits from juicing, Kristina’s passion drove her to blend the two. Eventually, transforming an idea into the “modern-day milk-woman”, delivering cold-pressed juices around Chicago and in her own storefronts.

While HJ was establishing a brick and mortar business, they offered juices, nut milks, smoothies, avocado toasts, and seasonal bowls through organic or ‘hand-picked’ partnerships with local farms; integrating fresh herbs, spices, and 2-3 pounds of fruits and vegetables in each bottle. The end result: delicious, nutrient-dense food and drink.

As HJ evolved in the demand for expanded availability, we changed things up. Keeping our original recipes, we now solely offer our signature juice line for wholesale across the nation with one same principle: making healthy taste good, by offering a high-quality cold pressed juice. For everyone. For everyday.

Drink Up. Live Well.
