Who's News in Catering for May 8, 2021

Products on the Market

Oregon Fruit Products has unveiled two new additions to its Fruit in Hand line for the foodservice market: Cherry Compote, Peach in Raspberry Sauce Compote and Lemonade. 

Oregon Fruit in Hand products are made by hand-selecting fresh fruit picked at the peak of ripeness. It is manufactured to maintain the flavor and color of the fruit and lightly sweetened with cane sugar to enhance the fruits’ natural sugars. It contains no artificial flavors or colors, and no high fructose corn syrup. It is certified Kosher, gluten-free, and non-GMO. Fruit in Hand Lemonade ships frozen in one-gallon containers, defrosts within hours under refrigeration, and stays fresh for up to 6 months.
