The GOODS from The Juice Truck

Vancouver, BC | It all started with a simple love of juice and its power to nourish and sustain. The Juice Truck owners, Zach Berman and Ryan Slater, were in Nepal. The juice was seabuckthorn. And from that moment and that love, The Juice Truck was born. While running The Juice Truck and drinking juice daily, they noticed a huge shift in how amazing they felt. Even better, their regular customers were noticing the same shift. From that awareness and that shift, they created The Juice Cleanse.

The new cleanses come in 3, 5 and 7-day durations. Each Juice Cleanse is designed to promote overall health, energy and happiness. These aren’t starvation cleanses. Typically someone will lose a pound or two while cleansing, but The Juice Truck formulated these cleanses with their nutritionist to support better functioning of your body’s systems, and not to get you skinny.

The cold-pressed Juice Cleanse juices retain maximum nutritional value. They taste great because you don’t have to cut back on deliciousness to increase their detoxifying benefits. And there’s a Juice Cleanse for every level of cleanser. Learn more or order online at

The Story

Never underestimate the power of a trek through the Himalayas to change your life. We (Zach and Ryan, Juice Tenders) tossed around ideas of going into business together for years, but it was two weeks into a Himalayan trek, snowbound in a small Nepalese village when inspiration struck.

We noticed the locals drinking a vibrant, sweet smelling, orange-coloured drink. We discovered it was made from Seabuckthorn berries and it supplied these high altitude locals with most of their nutrients. It was this juice, so essential to their health, which changed our perspective on juice and sparked a new idea.

We spent the next year travelling the world, never going very long without seeking out the nearest juice stand. How many other nutritious, Seabuckthorn-like juices and juice blends were there out there that we could bring them to Canada? Turns out, quite a few.

When we came home, The Juice Truck was born.

The Juice

Juice does some amazing things for your body and health. It’s also delicious, refreshing and hydrating, which is every bit as important. Especially the delicious part.

We make the most nutritionally complete juice possible. Our premium cold press makes juice that contains more essential vitamins, minerals and enzymes than juice made any other way. The cold press also preserves the natural flavours of the produce, which we feel makes the juice tastier.

We support local produce and organic farming practices as a way of extending our passion for healthy living beyond our cozy corner of Water and Abbott Streets. In the case of fruits and vegetables that just aren’t locally or seasonally available (mmmmm, pineapple), we take a long look at potential suppliers to verify their growing standards and practices measure up to our standards.

In 2012, we are adding The Juice Cleanse ( to The Juice Truck family. It’s part two of our ongoing passion with all things juice.
