4th March 2013 – London – Juice, the newly established brand of mobile device charging solutions, has today announced that it has selected Frequency as the exclusive EU distributor for it unique range of charging products. With immediate effect, Frequency will be responsible for all sales and marketing activities through its ready-established relationships with most of the EU’s leading retailers.
Commenting on the distribution appointment, Jolyon (Joe) Bennett, Managing Director of Gusto Telecom, the company behind the Juice brand, said, “When looking for a partner to build our brand in the EU, Frequency was the obvious choice, having demonstrated time after time that its routes to market and relationships are second to none.”
Bennett continues, “Crucial to our success was that whoever represented Juice must have the right experience in building brands across a wide cross section of retailers. Having viewed the huge success Frequency has generated with its phone accessories and audio brands, it was an easy decision for us. We are really looking forward to working closely with the Frequency team to develop the Juice brand in these new markets.”
John Willoughby, Sales and Purchasing Director at Frequency added, “We are delighted to be working with such an innovative brand as Juice. Not only do the products look great and work well, but also they bring a touch of style to the charger market and the imaginative way they are packaged allows us to reach out to a very wide retail channel. Juice is the ideal fit for our product portfolio and continues to display Frequency’s ability to spot exciting niche products that have real business potential.”
Juice launched in the UK in 2012 with a range of uniquely packaged and marketed mains and car charging products for Apple, Blackberry and Universal Smartphones. The Juice carton is already making a name for itself in the UK market through retailers such as John Lewis and Phone House.

Gusto aims to produce mobile phone accessories that complement and enhance the fantastic devices on the market today not only in practical terms but also aesthetically.
Gusto strongly believes that every business has a responsibility to try to limit the long-term impact that providing products and services has on the planet. To reduce the carbon footprint produced in the delivery of its products, Gusto insist on using established shipping routes, which, although take longer, produce less than 1% of the carbon flying product in would generate. So that its customers do not need to wait any longer for products, Gusto has created an industry-leading logistics and planning department and have found that being this organised is a sensible way of playing its part.
