THE juice is flowing and the orders are stacking up, but with a stagnant fruit season upon us Grove Juice is fighting to keep up with the demand.

Warwick factory managing director Greg Willis said he would like to be producing more than they are.

"We're running well, but we don't have the fruit we had expected so we're not producing the volumes (of juice) we were hoping for," Mr Willis said.

"Our capacity is a lot greater than what we're producing.

"Things are a little bit stagnant based on chasing volume and at this stage it has plateaued a little bit, but I think it will be like this until about October."

Mr Willis said there were a number of ideas in the pipeline and improvement was expected when they shifted into gear towards the end of the year.

"It's all good, we'll continue developing and improving and aggressively chasing more volume," he said.
