Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade apricots kernels exclusively from Uzbekistan/ Samarkand. Large parts of the region are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE products, and are cultivated by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there. The farmers are part of a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. 1,000 farmers and their families belong to the community. By working with Fairtrade, the farmers can provide their families with a secure income and offer their children new opportunities.
After being carefully harvested, the apricots are washed, halved and pitted. The shell of the kernel is cracked open and the actual apricot kernel is gently sun-dried. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.
The apricots are pressure treated and laser sorted in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests. When undergoing several rounds of cleansing in the laser cleaning facility afterwards, the organic apricot kernels are checked individually to make sure they contain no impurities. Our apricot kernels are slightly salted, gently roasted and packaged by us immediately afterwards.
