LEADING THE INDUSTRY

Unlike many of our competitors, we do not own interests in orchards or agricultural processing plants. This allows us to buy in the geographic regions offering the freshest fruit in season. We demand the best to ensure our clients get the best. With a working baking environment operating as part of our testing laboratory, we can better understand our clients’ challenges and develop ingredient solutions for them.

PROVEN INDUSTRY EXPERTS

Our technical staff includes a chief chemist, food technologists and master bakers who are all dedicated to helping our clients achieve their unique objectives.
