Since its inception, Berrico has collaborated closely with Canadian company Fruit d’Or, global market leader in cultivated organic cranberries.
Since time immemorial French-speaking Quebec has boasted a large expanse of cranberries. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that Fruit d’Or came into being there, and over the decades has developed into a specialist with a diverse range of products, but with the cranberry clearly at the forefront. Fruit d’Or is an innovative, versatile partner to us, that manages (a large part of) both the cultivation and the harvest of cranberries and blueberries.
Our Canadian partner supplies our cranberries, organic or conventional, in a variety of forms: dried, as juice, juice concentrate, puree, as chips or ‘tea bag cut’ for tea and powdered. In total Fruit d’Or supplies more than fifty different products featuring cranberries and blueberries as the major component. Fruit d’Or processes the berries with a level of care that can only be described as unique.
Fruit d’Or is FSSC 22000 certified and, together with Berrico’s certification (IFS Broker, SGF and BRC-AB), this ensures the quality of the harvesting, processing and logistics process from A to Z. Our organic products meet all standards set by the European certification for organic products, SKAL. The rabbinate too has granted its approval, meaning that the berries are Kosher.
European Berrico and Canadian Fruit d’Or form a close partnership. Because we share the same mentality – only the best, the purest is good enough for our customers. This is the ethos that we follow, in everything that we do. That is recognised and valued worldwide and that is why we are so successful.
