Smoothie Solutions has made amazing
smoothies since 2008

Our business was born from a passion for creating delicious and original fruit Smoothies and bringing our creations within the reach of all food-service retailers.

We established Smoothie Solutions in Gran Canaria in 2008 and within just a few weeks, we discovered the locals of the Canary Islands loved our smoothies just as much as we did.

In fact we sold so many smoothies it took us by surprise – and within 12 months we became the leading supplier of 100% natural IQF fruit Smoothies in the Canary Islands.

After a couple of years we decided to bring our products to a wider, international market and we established higher capacity production facilities and a logistics network.

Our smoothies are produced in the EU using the very latest technology. Every year, many millions of smoothies are supplied to customers in 15 countries and on 3 continents.

We have a team of extraordinarily talented people dedicated to producing the highest quality, best tasting and fastest selling Smoothies on the planet.

It’s been an amazing journey so far and we know it’s only just begun!

STEVIE

MANAGING DIRECTOR

Stevie our CEO has been a fan of natural juices and smoothies for many years and has a life long interest in nutrition and healthy life style choices.

He enjoys travelling to different countries and cultures and spending time with people from around the world.

He is fascinated by the motivation of the human spirit and the psychology that drives people’s everyday actions.

Stevie is at his best when envisioning the future, creating new smoothie recipes and organising the odd party or two.

“What do I love? Many things – from seeing the magic in the eyes of a child – to watching the sun go down with a glass of champagne (or a smoothie) in my hand!

I enjoy using the latest technology and I am intrigued by it’s ability to transform the way we live.

I also enjoy great food and drink preferably in the company of friends and colleagues. I love many types of music, an adventure or two - perhaps in foreign lands – but most of all – I love people.”
