In 1998 during a festival in London, three twenty year old students decided to sell fruit juice. The success was beyond their expectations and when they were newly graduated, they decided to start a real company that has just opened an office in Paris, having already conquered the UK, Denmark and the Netherlands.
In 1998, the company launched Innocent on the market. A new and easy way to eat fruit. With all of the daily intake of fruit contained in one small 250 ml bottle, Innocent smoothie isout to conquer thhe market of the active urban youth who is health conscious, but pushed for time.
But what's a smoothie? Recognized with sound values such as health, welfare and shape, smoothies are drinks mixed with fruit or fruit pulp, which emerged after the U.S. began to invest in the European market.
The name of Innocent was not chosen at random. Indeed, each smoothie is composed of 300 grams of fresh fruit, a "pure" amount recommended by the National Health and Nutrition institute. It must be said that Innocent has responded early to a social problem, which is none other than the fight against obesity and, therefore, helps promote a balanced diet.
Although the fruit juice has been around since almost time immemorial, it has not always been regarded as such, and businesses are increasingly responding to the demands of consumers who complain of immeasurable quantities of dyes, preservatives and other additives of any kind.

[...] Indeed, it is clear that in the face of competitors such as Tropicana, Innocent may struggle to be invited to the breakfast table despite its recognized nutritional intake.
