Marygrace Sexton
Natalie's Orchid Island Juice Company

“Changing technologies in manufacturing is what excites me, whether it’s introducing a new vegetable squeezer so that we can squeeze our own veggies instead of sourcing the juice from elsewhere or finding cost effective ways to add promotional bottle hangers to our shipments that will aid our special promotions.”

Marygrace Sexton is the Founder and CEO of second generation, women-owned, authentically clean juice company, Natalie’s Orchid Island Juices.

From the very beginning, Sexton insisted that Natalie’s Orchid Island Juices be squeezed in small batches to retain quality and nutrition. She wanted to produce an authentic juice that mothers, like her, could be confident in serving their families.

Today, Natalie’s is a thriving, innovative, award-winning business that is at the forefront of the clean label juice movement and a leading juice provider in the US and across the globe. Natalie’s minimal ingredient juices are offered in 32 states and 41 countries around the world.

It was Sexton’s lifelong passion for health and fitness that inspired her to start her juice company. In fact, she has personally developed some of Natalie’s most popular juices, using superfoods for maximum nutrition and fitness performance. Her favorites include Natalie’s Orange Beet juice, which aids in recovery after exercise and Natalie’s Carrot Ginger juice which aids in digestion and reduces inflammation.

As CEO, she drives innovation and directs the team on new concepts, ideas and products. In recognition of her leadership and senior management’s effectiveness, the company has been certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National.

Every year, Natalie’s gives away more than 16,000 gallons of juice to non-profit causes, churches and community-sponsored events. In addition to contributing to 60 local and national charitable causes, Marygrace is committed to only sourcing fruit and vegetables only from local Florida growers – staying true to a founding principal of the company.

The company is headquartered in Fort Pierce, Florida and has satellite offices in NYC, Charlotte, NC, and Denver, CO.
