Ambro Foods

DEDICATED TO CANDIED FRUITS 

In 2016, Ambro Foods joined the BROUSSE VERGEZ Group. This subsidiary is specialized in candied fruits distribution for food industries, wholesalers in bakery and pastry and retailers. Exclusive partner in France of the Italian confectioner Ambrosio, Ambro Foods offers a wide range of candied fruits for inclusion or decoration to answer the customers needs by supplying quality products.  

Candying, a historical know-how 

Candying fruits consists of removing water and replacing it by sugar. It starts in orchards and plantations where fruits are rigorously selected around the world, especially in Europe before arriving in Italy to be candied. Then they are prepared before being dropped in boiled water a few minutes, to put the fruits in condition by loosening the fibers. The sugar setting starts, the fruits are immersed in a syrup more and more concentrated. Then fruits are separated from the syrup: candied fruits are ready to be packed! 

Our partner factory, in Napoli, was automated and uses high technology to answer each year to new requirements. 

A COMMITTED CLEAN RANGE

Since 2018, Ambro Foods has been committed to reducing additives in its candied fruit on behalf of its customers and their new requirements. Today we are proud to present our clean range, a range committed to the complete removal of synthetic colorants and progressive removal of preservatives.

For this range, we declare in our ingredient lists fruits, glucose, coloring agents based on concentrated fruit or vegetable juices and lemon juice. Nothing more!

You can find the products of our clean range with the logo.
