THIS IS OUR PROCESS

You reach out, and say, "Hey! I have an idea." We source for you only the finest produce from one of our friendly farmers. From there, we bring the raw material into our facility where it will be washed, sorted and mashed. The result will be a fine ingredient holding true to the taste and texture of nature's ripest harvest. After we deliver, the rest is up to you! Time to create that  blueberry pie from grandma's recipe that you've been dying to share with the world.

FROZEN PUREE

Cardinal Foods offers a single strength puree, unrivaled as a formulation ingredient. Fruit is crushed, heat treated, and filtered. Vegetables are mashed, resulting in a smooth liquidized puree. The single ingredient offers a true to taste addition to any recipe.

why puree?Because

it is just so sweet!

Limit your ingredient list by adding an all- natural fruit or vegetable puree! We've tasted and approved. Don't stop there, purees are great additions to soups, marinades, jams, and so much more!

Our process delivers a sweet potato puree with the brix, or soluble sugar content of 12 allowing the natural sugars to remain center stage. The fully ripened fruit, used in our berry puree, gives a brix level no lower than 10 ensuing an all-natural sweetener.

what about brix?

COLD STORAGE

The temperature in our storage freezer stays low while the demand for cold stowing rises high! IQF and purees give a raw material taste and feel with logistic advantages and an extended shelf life.
