Looking Ahead: The Future of Frozen Fruit

Frozen fruits are enriched with vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, antioxidants, and other nutrients. They are used in various food cuisines for adding nutritional content and flavor. Owing to busy and hectic lifestyles, there is a noticeable increase in the consumption of these ready-to-eat food products and beverages since the past few years. Moreover, rising disposable income and improving economic conditions are encouraging consumers in developed and developing countries to spend on packaged food, including snacks and bakery products, which further propels the demand for frozen fruits.

The demand for frozen fruit is going to continue to increase for years to come. At Wawona Frozen Foods, we have an extensive product line of various types of frozen fruit, available for your operation’s convenience. From our Signature Sliced Peaches, to Fruit Cups, and a whole line of Organic products, we have something for every company.

Improve your Sustainability by Eating Fruit!

The globalization and mass distribution of fruit worldwide allows us to enjoy a large variety of produce at any time of the year. Eating more seasonal fruit has become an increasingly popular message to improve the sustainability of our diets.

Fruit is an important part of a healthy and sustainable diet. They provide essential vitaminsminerals and dietary fibre, and tend to have a lower environmental impact than animal-based foods.

The overall picture that emerges from research, is that the fruit and vegetables with the lowest GHG emissions are those that are grown outside during their natural season without much use of additional energy and consumed in the same country or region.

Wawona Frozen Foods picks their fruits at peak ripeness to ensure the highest amount of nutritional content. Make sure to choose Wawona for all of your frozen fruit solutions — we are the answer to high quality products and sustainability!
