Oregon Fruit Products expands canned fruit range

Oregon Fruit Products has added to its range of canned fruit with the release of Blueberries in 100 per cent Blueberry Juice in 14.5oz cans.

Packed in unsweetened, not-from-concentrate blueberry juice, the new drink from the US speciality fruit supplier has no added sugar and is targeted at the healthy eating trend. It is naturally rich in antioxidants and contains 13 grams of natural sugar. 

“Even grandma added a little sugar when she used to can blueberries,” said Lisa Klarp, national sales manager for Oregon Fruit Products. “But as Americans are cautioned to watch their sugar intake, we felt that packing the fruit in unsweetened juice would be a delicious way of delivering a lower-sugar option, without compromising flavour.”

Oregon Fruit sources its blueberries and blueberry juice exclusively from the Pacific Northwest, just a few miles away from where they are packed in Salem, Oregon. Blueberries in Blueberry Juice contain Non-GMO Project Verified fruit and juice, are certified kosher, and preserved in 100 per cent recyclable cans without a Bisphenol A (BPA) lining.

Blueberries in Juice is now available on Amazon for US$24.54 for a four-can pack of 14.5oz cans.

Oregon Fruit Products was founded in 1935 and now offers a complete line of canned, frozen and shelf-stable premium fruit for consumers, foodservice operators, brewers and ingredients.
