Mediterranean dried fruits
Color Foods has announced plans to sell a new range of dried fruits under its ‘La Favorite’ brand.
The French company will launch three ranges next month. These include ‘clean label’ natural, dried fruit products – apricots, figs and dates – which contain no preservatives, additives, or added sugar.
The company imports its fruit from Northern Africa and Turkey, where dates, figs and apricots are picked when ripe, before being sundried.
According to Color Foods, La Favorite ranges will be sold in environmentally-conscious packaging.
“There are ways for the food industry to reduce the amount of plastic being used in packaging without losing their functionality,” said Color Foods’ head of R&D, Marie Estorges.
“We are closely following the industry to make sure we adapt our packaging when possible, while ensuring it doesn’t compromise the quality of the product.”
