Started in the early 1960s, Frucor has evolved from a small New Zealand juice business to a leading Australasian drinks company. Since 2009, we’ve been owned by Japanese beverage and food company Suntory Group.

We manufacture, market and distribute a range of fruit drinks, energy drinks, waters and soft drinks throughout New Zealand and Australia.  Energy drink V is also distributed in Europe and the UK.

Our other brands include: Just Juice, Fresh-up, McCoy, Citrus Tree, Simply Squeezed, Arano, H2Go, NZ Natural, G-Force, Supplement Water, Mizone, Moccona, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, 7Up and Frank.

We rely on people with engineering, science and technology degrees to create and produce our products. Our Research & Development department consists of over 20 people, most with a degree in science or technology. 

There are professionals in engineering and production management roles in the Production team, and our Quality Assurance staff have microbiological and technology backgrounds. 

New technologies are always being developed to keep us ahead of our competitors. We’re known for our innovation culture and cutting-edge development strategies.

Everything is done as one team working together to help the business achieve its goals, with individuals from different departments providing technical expertise in their field. Our employees are team players, good communicators and hard workers.

We invest time in individual staff development plans, backed up with internal training, to help people move ahead in the business.

A healthy work-life balance is important, so we offer services such as health and wellbeing guides and assessments. Depending on the role, there are often travel opportunities for staff and we encourage people to build industry networks through membership in professional organisations.

We often visit universities to look for graduates, and sometimes take on summer interns.  These students get work experience in different areas of the company.
