Alongside canned pure fruit (simple, whole, or diced), the company also supply more highly processed products, generically defined as fruit based preparations.
This category includes a very wide range of products, having in common the inclusion in their formulations of fruit, sugar, water, starch, pectin, and other ingredients, like flavours and sometimes preservatives, in proportions that vary in each specific case. Industrial preserves can also be included in this category.
At the Frubella and Capuzzo sites, the main production involves black cherry and apple based preparations, which are very widely used in industrial pastry making, both as fillings for baked products before or after baking, and as toppings for cakes and doughnuts.
They are packaged in buckets of 3 Kg and 12 Kg, or in cans from 3 to 5 Kg. The percentage of fruit in chunks varies according to the customer’s requirements, but it is generally between 45% and 90%, while the sugar content is from 20% to 40%.
