After successful careers in both Melbourne and London – Tom as a CFO and advisor to the United Nations, and Emma running the consumer marketing division at the NAB, the two used their accumulated savings in 2004 to fulfil an all-encompassing desire to bring Australians super premium whole fruit smoothies.

Today, Emma & Tom’s juices are the leading whole fruit smoothies with functional botanicals like spirulina, Siberian ginseng and stinging nettle.

The unique ingredients and fresh taste of Emma & Tom’s whole fruit smoothies have aided Emma & Tom’s success, achieving distribution in Australia’s top 2,000 cafes and delis – no mean feat considering it’s all managed through in-house sales reps!

Each year, Emma & Tom’s donates more than $100,000 worth of juice to community groups, fundraising events and charities such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Second Bite and the Prahran and St Kilda Missions.

Having completed the start-up phase of perfecting their business, the next few years are all about growth. Distribution is the main focus, together with offering the best-tasting, most fantastic natural whole fruit juice that helps Australians to look after themselves.
