IQF fruit

These IQF fruits are cultivated according to our specifications to ensure perfect traceability and quality. Each fruit was frozen shortly after harvest to guarantee optimum taste & freshness. Beautiful & tasty fruits for the professional to create delicious food. Available under our DIRA brand, or packed under your private label.

IQF fruit mixes

These mixed frozen berries and mixed exotic fruits offer great taste and colour for breakfast, smoothies, fruit pies, jams and more. Our fruit experts composed the most-wanted recipes, which we offer in 1kg and 2,5kg bags under our DIRA brand. But we do more: tailor-made recipes for the food industry or for your private label.

Fruit purees

Our premium fruit purees offer constant taste & colour for foodservice, artisan bakery and the food industry. The ingredients are sourced by our fruit experts and carefully processed by our production team at low temperature and flash-pasteurized, to preserve the fruit’s natural taste & colour. Available with or without added sugar.

Smoothie mixes

These convenient mixes of frozen fruits in 150g bags give your smoothies a constant taste and colour. The frozen fruits immediately chill your smoothie, so no need to add ice cubes.

Discover how these deco fruits can facilitate the manufacturing process of your tartlets, pies and cakes. Using our pre-formed fruit discs results in a more efficient pie production. Our coated fruits loose up to 15% less juice after thawing, preserving your pie’s texture & look.

NEW: 5 healthy smoothie references in retail

Dirafrost is proud to present their frozen fruit portions for smoothies and milkshakes – for many years already successful in the foodservice market – now also in the retail segment. A professional smoothie served at home, and ready in 1 2 3!
All freshly frozen ingredients are packed in 150g bags, which results in exactly one big portion, or two regular portions. In each consumer box you can find 2 portioned bags, ready for use.
Before the pandemic, trends as ‘health’, ‘convenience’ and ‘plant based’ were already in the picture, but since COVID-19 showed up globally, more people are getting motivated to make healthier choices and adopt healthier habits. Those patterns are expected to have staying power in the post-COVID-19 world.
‘Being aware of what you eat’ and ‘taking up a healthier lifestyle’ has never been more important than today, and here’s where Dirafrost can make a significant contribution.
Beside the fact that the smoothie is immediately chilled (no ice needed) frozen fruit has a lot more benefits such as: availability, convenience, no food waste, long shelf life, mature & tasty fruit and nutrient retention.
