Barakat launches blank bottle promotionnbsp;to encourage customers to look at the back and 'Read the Label'

Dubai: Barakat, the UAE’s homegrown ultra-fresh juice maker, encouraged customers to turn its bottles and ‘Read the Label’ to highlight that its juices are made from fresh fruits, and juiced daily, and raise consumer awareness about what goes into the food and drinks we buy each day.

As part of the one-day-only ‘Read the Label’ activity, the company removed images and text, including its logo, from the labels on the front of its juice bottles at the flagship Al Aweer store, leaving only the most important facts at the back – the ingredients, shelf life and nutritional information.

Barakat produces a wide range of fresh juices and smoothies from 100% fresh fruits and vegetables that are juiced daily. Containing no additives or preservatives and completely unprocessed, Barakat’s bottled juices are good for three days when stored in chilled temperature conditions.

Barakat’s ‘Read the Label’ campaign contained a powerful message that represents a growing consumer mindset to lead a healthy lifestyle through better food choices. Customers of all ages are now more discerning and knowledgeable about food than ever before, particularly when it comes to avoiding processed food, preservatives, and additives.

Only by reading the labels on food items can shoppers discover for themselves that many products perceived as ‘fresh’ such as juices, can be in fact be re-engineered and contain artificial sweeteners or flavours.

Rashid Mohamed Alabbar, Board Member at Barakat, said: “One of the pre-requisites for a healthy lifestyle is to be aware and be sure of what’s in your food – hence we encourage consumers to ‘Read the Label’ of all products and decide for themselves. Barakat juices contain nothing you cannot pronounce – just fresh fruit. Our brand truth is right at the front of the label, let the choice be yours.”

Barakat, which has been serving the best of fresh since 1976, delivers freshly squeezed juices to consumers at their doorstep via the Barakat app. The juices are also available across supermarkets in the UAE. The freshness of Barakat’s juices is highlighted by their shelf life of three days, the same as it is for juice freshly squeezed at home.
