Frequently, Goodnature customers struggle to find reliable suppliers for the things they need beyond the juice equipment, and if they can find them, the ordering process can be difficult and hard to maneuver. For years, I've been pondering the idea of offering an online marketplace that Goodnature customers can use to find all of the regularly needed items for their juice bar, and order everything with a couple of mouse clicks all in the same shopping cart.
A couple of years ago, we experimented with the business model by partnering with Captiva Containers to offer premium juice bottles for sale on our website. We invested a lot of time and money into developing the easiest-to-use ordering process for commercial quantities of juice bottles available anywhere. No longer do juice companies have to deal with getting quotes, sending PO's, negotiating pricing, dealing with freight carriers, etc...
Captiva has done a great job on their end by working with us on offering transparent pricing, timely shipments, and excellent customer service. When bottles are ordered on our website, the order goes straight to Captiva and they handle the rest of the fulfillment process.
The experiment proved to be extremely successful, with a ton of juice companies ordering bottles through our website monthly by the case or pallet. So, in 2021 I started the work on a new website with a team of developers that has the ability to scale the business model to an unlimited amount of products and suppliers.
We finally launched the new website in January. Starting soon, you will begin to see us onboarding some of your favorite suppliers (and some you haven't heard of yet, but will LOVE). Customers based in the US will have quick and easy access to a specially curated list of premium brands offering wholesale quantities of their products.
