Having had decades of experience, Tierhoek Organics have developed significant expertise in the sulphur-free dried fruit production process and they’ve decided to launch a non-organic preservative- and sulphur-free range to provide more options for our customers under the brand name The Fruit Cellar.
Sulphur Dioxide is used widely in the dried fruit industry to preserve dried fruit from moulds and insect growth. It is this sulphur that people have an allergy towards and which is not used in The Fruit Cellar range.
Fresh fruit is sourced from local Western Cape farmers who are GlobalGAP and export certified. This means they farm with a minimum of sprays, in some cases no chemicals at all, as well as adhering to strict environmental and labour regulations.
