Heinen’s Fresh Squeezed Juices

We have been fresh squeezing orange juice in-store since the 1940s! Today, we have automated juicers in each of our stores and have added grapefruit juice to our everyday offering.

Our process for juicing starts at our warehouse where juicing citrus is inspected to ensure it meets our strict quality standards.

The produce then arrives to our stores where it is sanitized, juiced and bottled by our Produce Associates for customers to enjoy.

During the winter, when citrus is at its peak, you can even find seasonal fresh squeezed juices, like blood orange. But regardless of the time of year, we are only squeezing the best varieties available to us.

Our commitment to freshness and convenience in our Produce Department continues with our selection of fresh cut fruit.

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
