FRUANDES’ unique flavors are the result of an equally unique journey that starts in rural Colombia, where FRUANDES’ farmers live, harvest and select the best produce that gets delivered to FRUANDES’ distribution centers. All produce is transported and received in FRUANDES’ production plant in Bogota following strict quality standards. Once the fresh fruit reaches their facilities, they carefully analyze and select each piece according to its ripeness. After this, each fruit undergoes a washing and disinfection phase, which is followed by the fruit-specific peeling, cutting, dehydration and final quality control & packaging process. Organic Dried Mango, Organic Dried Physalis, Dried Pineapple, Dried Dragon Fruit, Organic Dried Baby Banana - and our specials Organic Whole Sugar Cane and Organic Cocoa Nibs - are therefore, the result of a delicate manual processing, which magically translates into an unforgettable flavor that resembles the Colombian Andes and the caring work performed by every individual involved in the process.
