FRUANDES unique flavors are the result of an equally unique journey that starts in the different rural zones of Colombia, where our associated farmers live, harvest and select the best produce that gets delivered to our distribution centers.
All produce is transported and received in our production plant following strict quality standards. Once the fresh fruit reaches our facilities, we carefully analyze and select each piece according to its ripeness. After this, each fruit undergoes a systematically performed washing and disinfection phase, which is followed by the fruit-specific peeling, cutting, dehydration and final quality control & packaging process.
Mango, Goldenberry (physalis), Pineapple, Dragon Fruit, Baby Banana - and our special Whole Sugar Cane - 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.
