Youngsters launch apple drink business

Young enterprise students set to start juice making company in Axminster

YOUNGSTERS at Axminster are going into business – producing their own apple juice.

The young enterprise students at Axe Vale Community College have set up ‘Fruit Bowl Enterprises’ as part of their business studies.

Last week they got some handy tips on how to run their production line when they visited Lyme Bay Winery.

They toured the plant to see the process that their apple juice goes through from delivery to leaving the site in bottles, labelled and ready for sale.
