February 9, 2012, Prosser, WA – Milne Fruit Products is pleased to announce the expansion of product offerings, as the company has become the new, exclusive distributor of Wyckoff Farms’ frozen berry products.
“Our customers can now source IQF (Individually Quick Frozen), straight pack and non-pasteurized sieved and seedless products through Milne brokers and sales representatives,” said Michael Sorenson, General Manager. “We are also utilizing Milne’s global sales network to expand the market for these products produced by our parent company, Wyckoff Farms.”
Vertically integrated from field to final product, the frozen berry product line includes blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, and is produced with the high quality standards customers have come to expect from Milne and Wyckoff Farms.
Milne has also begun full-scale production and shipments of its new MicroDried™ line of 100% all-natural fruit products. Initial offerings include blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.
“These large, plump dried fruit pieces are rich with the real color, flavor, fragrance and taste of natural fruit,” said Jack Schroeder, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “It’s a truly revolutionary product line that surpasses traditional dried products in nutritional content, as well as eye and mouth appeal.”
MicroDried fruit is available in several moisture ranges from crunchy to chewy, offering a wide scope of applications from hot and cold cereals to baked goods, trail mixes, granola bars, baking mixes and more. The line is expected to springboard new product opportunities that simply were not possible before.
Most MicroDried products are vertically integrated with fruit grown by Wyckoff Farms and produced under the high quality assurance standards that are hallmarks of both Milne and Wyckoff Farms.
