iF Juices: Turn a Good Concept into Real Business
Foreigners in China - Foreigners in China

Foreigners in ChinaAs a lawyer Hans Au once advised corporate clients in Europe and Beijing. His friend, Florian Eysler, was a purchasing manager for a European auto-maker in Beijing: just the kind of people you'd expect to quit their corporate jobs and start a fruit juice company in Beijing. Right?

 
Au and Eysler's tiny iF Juice Shop in the Central Park community just inside the East Third Ring Road in Beijing may not prompt thoughts of finely honed legal arguments or precise automotive specifications, but it exudes a sense of precision and restraint, with an emphasis on quality and sanitation (you can watch them as they work). The 25-square-metre iF shop that opened in November 2007 is a powerhouse when it comes to producing smoothies and fresh-juice beverages.
 
But the attention to detail does not stop there: with just a glance at the iF menu, rendered in English and Chinese, customers can assess the sweetness value of each product offered by the duo, whether it's a naturally sweet watermelon drink carrying a “four-red-apple” rating or a bittersweet “four-green-apple” rating for the grapefruit drink or other delights in between. Even the “teardrop” bottles used to sell the beverages are unique, bearing English and Chinese logos and ingredient tags, and if you must have one, there's an attractive media kit available that tells the iF story.
