Frozberries-Harvestime has an extensive range of frozen berries and tropical fruit which are sourced from quality growers and processors. For example, great Blueberries are grown near the pristine Coffs Harbour region of Australia. We offer an extensive range to both the Foodservice and Manufacturing sectors from the one source.
How does the business work?
Frozberries-Harvestime customers typically order mixed pallets comprising a wide selection of frozen berries and / or purees. A typical order may include, for example, a selection of cartons of frozen blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, mixed berries and passionfruit puree, etc. The stock is then placed onto a pallet and delivered by an external refrigerated transport company to the customer-hotel, foodservice distributor, bakery and so on. No need for your own delivery vehicle/s.
Frozberries-Harvestime supplies berries in a wide range of packaging options. Should your customer be a Foodservice Distributor or Wholesaler who is on-selling to restaurants, hotels, smaller bakeries, etc., they may prefer to receive stock in 1kg bags (10 x 1kg bags per carton). This allows them to pick smaller orders and on-sell to their customer and deliver Frozberries frozen berries as part of their usual order directly to the respective restaurant or hotel, etc.
For larger scaled customers, there are bulk size cartons of 10kg each for supply to commercial bakeries, jam manufacturers, gelato / ice cream manufacturers and so on.
