"Premium ranges and brands such as Cawston Vale, Cracker and locally produced pressed apple juices in glass bottles are in enormous growth.
"Customers appear to be searching for superior quality and taste with the convenience that ambient products can provide.
"In the English apple juice range, there is a desire to support local and regional producers (often working on very small scale production) and there is the simple fact that these products deliver excellent flavour and quality.
"Historically, ambient juice has become commoditised, but I believe that products with a price point of 1.39 [pounds sterling] to 1.99[pounds sterling] (for one litre in cartons) that can deliver serious quality cues on flavour, ingredients and packaging have a good future and a growing market."
