IQF fruit

Our IQF fruit

IQF means Individually Quick Frozen:
Each fruit piece is frozen individually in 10 max 15 minutes: this makes it easy to portion and prevents fruit from sticking together.

IQF freezing is the best way to preserve the natural taste & color of fresh fruit. Using this technique vitamins and nutrients are preserved which makes frozen fruits just as healthy as fresh fruits.
You can use frozen strawberries or blueberries in a cake filling, or use a frozen berrymix to decorate tartlets.

For Distribution & Retail we offer IQF fruit in bags of 1kg and 2,5kg, for Industry we have it available in larger packaging formats.
