Fruit and veg ingredient supplier SVZ is showcasing what it describes as a ‘fresh take on texture’ at FiE this year, with the launch of new ‘chunky’ purees.
The company said the new addition to its 100% natural and sustainably sourced portfolio is ‘minimally processed’ to retain pieces of fruit within a ‘rich’ puree. The chunky purees are available in strawberry and sour cherry.
SVZ said the new range allows dairy, ice cream and desert producers to create natural, clean label products that offer the look, taste and bite of authentic homemade purees. The size of the fruit pieces can be individually tailored according to customer requirements, allowing brands to create a ‘unique texture profile’.
SVZ suggested the new ingredient is likely to be of particular interest to food makers who use transparent packaging and ‘healthier choice’ premium brands.
“The launch of new chunky purees not only opens up a host of exciting NPD possibilities for producers, but equally demonstrates our dedication to serving the ever-changing needs of our customers," commented Johan Cerstiaens, commercial director at SVZ.
“From healthy reformulation to minimally processed ingredients for a more authentic, ‘homemade’ feel, our ingredients are designed to create exciting taste and texture experiences that satisfy the core demands of today’s consumers.”
SVZ is also committed to sourcing fruit and vegetable inputs sustainably, with a ‘longstanding commitment’ to chain visibility and working with suppliers to develop more sustainable farming practices. “Our commitment to achieving 100% sustainable sourcing by 2030 additionally means our products don’t just look and taste good, but aim to do good as well,” Cerstiaens stressed.
This new addition – and the rest of SVZ’s ingredient portfolio – will be on display at stand 6E110.
