Who we are and what we do
We have been making fruit juices for over 22 years, which means we have masses of experience when it comes to knowing exactly what to do to make a high quality juice.
Since 1991, we've been based on Whites Fruit Farm in Ashbocking, just north of Ipswich. Originally a cider factory, Lawrence Mallinson bought the assets to James White and began to explore a love of pressed fruit and vegetable juices. Originally one of the founders of New Convent Garden Soup, Lawrence has a knack for dreaming-up and creating new and exciting flavours. As a result, we now not only offer a range of English apple juices, but also an extensive portfolio of very different brands. This includes a Soil Association-certified range of organic fruit and vegetable juices, our world-famous spiced tomato juice (Big Tom), the grandfather - or Great Uncle - of the brands (Great Uncle Cornelius juices), an exciting and fun range of organic fruit and vegetable juices (Manic Organics), a fabulous and rather extensive selection of cordials (Thorncroft), and last, but by no means least, our best-selling brand of beetroot juice: Beet It!
We have amassed a large number of awards and accolades, but our Royal Warrant is by far the most widely-known. In 2002 Big Tom was singled out and awarded the Royal Warrant by HM Queen Elizabeth II and we hope that everyone finds it just as tasty!
We believe that our juices are the best, which is why we don't mess around with them!
What our customers say...
Be it trade or private customers, we pride ourselves on the personal relationship we have with everyone. As well as delivering the best quality produce direct to your door, we are always just a phone call away ready to answer any questions, queries or just to have a general chat about our juices!
"It’s always a pleasure to speak to the sales team as they are so friendly and helpful, and I feel that I’m taking to a friend rather than a member of a sales team. On the odd occasions when the order delivered is incorrect they are keen to correct any errors. If only I could persuade the customers to buy more of your excellent products then I would get to speak to you even more often..."
Robin Norman, Millets Farm Centre
"James White's range of delicous juices are always popular with our customers. The flavours of the different apple juices, from sweet to bitingly crisp, suit all tastes. We find them perfect for sipping on a hot sunny day while overlooking the gardens..."

Colin, Carpenters Nurseries
"We really enjoy dealing with the team at James White - they are both helpful and cooperative as well as providing some delicious juices which go down a treat with the customers..."
Lydia, Snape Maltings
"James White Drinks were one of the first local producers we started working with, and we are delighted to have been able to extend their range into stores across Suffolk as well as in Norfolk and Essex under our Sourced Locally banner. They are an excellent Suffolk producer, who we know we can rely on to deliver great quality products..."
Kevin, The Co-Operative
"Milton Ernest Garden Centre is very pleased to recommend James White organic fruit juices for the variety of flavours, quality and attractive pricing policy. The delivery is always reliable and usually within two days. Great Uncle Corneluis finest Spiced Ginger is a lovely non alcoholic aperitif but mixed with whiskey or cider makes that lovely tipple..."
