About Essentially Group PLC


Essentially's mission and strategy is the acquisition, holding and development of companies active in the health food and beverages market.  On 1 September 2022, Essentially Group PLC acquired Essentially Holdings Ltd (and its wholly owned subsidiary, Essentially Juices Manufacturing LLC ("EJM")) by means of a share for share exchange.  


EJM operates in the health food industry and more specifically in the juice market, offering premium quality wellness shots, functional juices, lemonades, nut milks, single origin fruit juices and healthy protein snacks within the UAE and regional markets. EJM has a manufacturing facility in Dubai where the beverages are produced.  


EJM does not thermally pasteurise its beverages but instead uses a process known as high pressure processing ("HPP") i.e., a non-thermal 'pasteurisation'. The HPP process "deactivates" unwanted microorganisms in the juices and consequently extends shelf life. By using pressure instead of heat, the final product also maximises its organoleptic and nutritional attributes. 


All of EJM's bottles are 100% recyclable. EJM is committed to protect the planet and is assessing the viability of recycled polyethylene terephthalate ('rPET') and/or biodegradable and compostable polylactic acid ('PLA') plastic bottles for its beverages. 


EJM is active in the UAE and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia fruit and vegetable juice market. The GCC fruit and vegetable juice market size reached US$ 3.1 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach US$ 4.3 billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8% over the period 2022-2027.
