Helping maintain a year-round supply of high quality fresh fruit, with aseptic packaging to provide unrivaled flavor and color
Purefruit Chile’s plant and headquarters are located in the central valley of Chile – one of the world’s best agricultural zones. Because of Chile’s lower labor and raw material costs, and very affordable shipping, fruit from Purefuit Chile provides high quality products that help keep costs within budget. They also offer North American food manufacturers a fresh fruit alternative during the Northern Hemisphere’s off-season, as well as mitigating risk when crop problems occur in other parts of the world. Purefruit Chile is especially known for its Apples, Pears, Blackberries, Blueberries, Dark Sweet Cherries, Raspberries, and Strawberries.
Purefruit Chile specializes in the production of single strength purees (both conventional and organic) that are aseptically packed – which many fruit providers do not provide. Their aseptic packaging process maintains outstanding flavor and color while allowing the customer to avoid costly refrigerated or frozen storage by being shelf stable.
The aseptic production is a continuous process flow with a verified kill step that then cools down the puree before filling. The low temperatures and flash pasteurization is a gentle process provides a verified kills step while protecting color and flavor. Customers who use Purefruit Chile’s aseptic purees consistently comment on the good flavor and improved color over other purees. They also find them easier to use over frozen purees, since they do not have to deal with the more costly refrigerated storage and defrosting times.
One of the most important factors in the impressive quality of products from Purefruit Chile is that Chile provides exceptionally fertile soil and pristine waters. In fact it is considered one of the world’s cleanest environments for food production. Chile has natural barriers that protect if form diseases and parasites common to most agricultural areas. This helps Purefruit Chile provide abundant and safe natural flavor with both their certified organic products as well as conventional products. They also offer a transitional grade called “Baby Food” that is grown to the organic standards, but does not have the organic certification.
For optimum food safety and traceability from orchards to final consumer, Purefruit Chile ties in all lots it produces with the orchards where it was grown, along with HAACP, Certified Quality Systems and ISO 9001 and BRC AA Certification.
Purefruit Chile is always looking for new applications and ways to elevate its already impressive quality. Their R&D team has extensive knowledge and expertise and is comprised of agronomists, food scientists, process engineers and quality control specialists.
