Axe Fruit is the entity dedicated to the industrial channel within the Brousse Vergez Group
. It sells all of the Group's ranges of fruity inclusions: dried superfruits, dried Mediterranean fruits, seeds, candied fruits, canned fruits in syrup, fruit fillings ... with conventional or organic ranges.

The "superfruits" expertise

 

Originally specialized in trading of dried superfruits (fruits rich in antioxidants that are supposed to have a beneficial effect on health) before its purchase by Brousse Vergez in 2014, Axe Fruit has retained this expertise in its DNA. It carries out a large part of its volumes on cranberries indeed, berries that are so popular in North America, thanks to a knowledge acquired from an American cooperative and leader in cranberry production and processing. 

Axe Fruit's dried specialities also include goji berries, blackcurrants, blueberries, raspberries, mulberries, physalis (Cape gooseberries), chia seeds or quinoa. As well as a variety of diced dried or candied fruits.


Axe Fruit works to serve food manufacturers, regardless of the business or application: chocolatiers and confectioners, processors, dairy products, ice cream makers, cereals and cereal bars, flour mills, bakeries, biscuit factories, pastry shops, and the list goes on.

Cranberries 11.34 kg, 12.5 kg

The cranberry is a superfruit from the Northern United States and Canada. Its cousins can be found in a number of regions around the world.

The cranberry is very firm and dense with a ruby red colour and has a slightly tart taste and a very fruity aroma. It can be eaten in any form - fresh, dried, as juice, in jam, mixed with cereal for a complete breakfast or as an accompaniment to a wide variety of preparations, including your main course (and is traditionally served along with the Thanksgiving turkey).

The cranberry is rich in vitamin C and condensed tannins, making it the first fruit to have its health claims recognized by AFSSA (French Food Safety Agency).

Our dried cranberries come from Wisconsin. Located in the Great Lakes region of the United States, this land is ideal for growing cranberries because it combines its best allies: sand, water, sun and cold. Cranberries grow in sandy, dug-out fields. A field of cranberries, which is called an eyelet, measures about 14,000 square meters. A young vine planted gives its first harvest after 3 years and produces in abundance until 25 years. After that, the yield is less, some vines in Wisconsin are over 100 years old! For more than 10 years, we have been working in close collaboration with two suppliers selected for their expertise and quality.

When the cranberry is ripe, the fields are immersed and lightly stirred to allow the berries to drop out vines and rise to the surface. Cranberry consisting of 4 small cavities filled with air, they are very light and therefore float on the surface of the immersed field. So just gather it with large buoys and then pump it up. The last step is cleaning and selecting fruits before the distribution.
