Welch’s is a co-op owned by about 1,000 family farmers across the United States. Every farmer takes pride in their grape-growing expertise and the vineyards they’ve cultivated for generations. From the farms to your table, they are dedicated to growing the best Concord and Niagara grapes to provide families with the all-time favourite juices, jams, and jellies.
The Concord grape is native to American soil. It was first grown in Massachusetts nearly 170 years ago. In 1869, Dr. Thomas Bramwell Welch bottled his first batch of grape juice in his kitchen.
Unlike typical store-bought grapes, Concord grapes have distinct thick, dark purple skin and crunchy seeds. The entire grape is a superfruit full of healthy nutrients called polyphenols. However, due to it growing in specific regions and having a short harvest season, it is a challenge to find fresh grapes.
That’s is why Welch’s Grapes are processed from vine to press within 8 hours to ensure the sweetness and freshness are intact.

Within the recent decade, scientists have uncovered the benefits of polyphenols in Concord grapes that support the overall health of the heart, mind, and body.
Polyphenols in the dark purple Concord grapes help promote healthy blood circulation in the heart. Besides polyphenols, grape Juice is rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, thus providing the immunity boost you need.
Also, researchers from the UK have discovered that Concord grape juice improves cognitive function in people with busy and stressful lifestyles. They observed that people who consumed 100% grape juice had better reaction time, attentiveness, and improved mood levels.
In another study, researchers have found that grape juice drinkers had increased blood flow in the memory part of the brain of older adults with age-related memory decline.
Welch’s 100% grape juice uses every part of the grape (skin and seed) without added sugar, so you benefit from all the nutrients from this superfruit. It is a healthy choice of drink during breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and any time in between.
