Fruit Juice Science Centre

About us

The Fruit Juice Science Centre is a science information body funded by donations from a wide range of orange producers, juice manufacturers and packaging companies based in Europe and Brazil. 

Our mission is to provide evidence-based information to consumers, journalists and health professionals on the role of 100% fruit juice in diets and health. 

We will do this by: 

  • Commissioning and publishing high quality scientific research and working with a range of partners to deliver this; 
  • Working closely with academics, healthcare professionals and industry scientists to understand how fruit juice impacts on health and wellbeing; 
  • Clearly communicating the science on fruit juice in a balanced and transparent way. 
Who we are 

The Fruit Juice Science Centre is managed by Programme Director, Francois Bauwens and supported by a Scientific Expert Panel chaired by dietitian and health writer, Dr Carrie Ruxton.

Governance is provided by representatives of our funders and we are legally hosted by AIJN, the European Fruit Juice Association. For further details, please contact:
