Company: Oregon Fruit Products

Ingredient Snapshot: Oregon Fruit Products’ latest release from its award-winning Fruit In Hand line is Harvest Apple, a pourable fruit that allows chefs and operators to infuse classic autumnal flavor into beverages, desserts, and other culinary applications without the prep work of using fresh apples.

Harvest Apple Fruit In Hand is made from Pacific Northwest-grown Granny Smith apples and is spiced with vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice. Its thick, pourable texture with pieces of diced apple make it ideal for breakfast and dessert applications, especially for operators who are seeking fall flavors for seasonal menu offerings.

“As our customers plan their seasonal menus and beverage programs, they know we listen to their concerns and meet their needs with on-trend flavors and new ideas,” says Becky Westby, senior director of sales at Oregon Fruit Products. “For example, previously working with A&W together on several successful seasonal applications, led them to partner with us again this year for their fall limited-time offer Apple Crumble Sundaes and Polar Swirls featuring Harvest Apple Fruit in Hand Original.”
