Our main source of Tropical Fruit is Thailand with other origins such as Sri Lanka and China producing a range of products. InThailand the majority of factories are based in and around the Bangkok region. Shipments leave via the port of Bangkok which is one the busiest ports in the world.
Fruit is grown in plantations and picked by hand. The fruit is then soaked in cane syrup before being cut into slices or diced. The fruit is then dehydrated in clean hot air compartments before being packed traditionally into 5kg bags which are then packed 4 bags per carton.
The factories in Thailand are of the highest standard and the factories we deal with are BRC, ISO & HACCP accredited. Alongside this the factories are fully approved by many of the UK’s largest food manufacturers. Factories are dedicated to producing quality material at an affordable price.
The typical dehydrated fruits that are supplied from Thailand include Papaya, Pineapple, Mango, Ginger, Guava, Coconut and Cantaloupe. The UK predominantly uses Papaya, Pineapple and Mango in the bakery and cereal manufacturing industry.
