Dried apricots contain the same nutrients as fresh apricots, in a concentrated form. Apricots are known for their high levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, iron and potassium [1 and 2]. That’s why dried fruits are indispensable for a balanced diet.
Wild organic Fairtrade apricot halves grow on wild growing apricot trees. The proof is in the taste! The flavour is much more intensive and strong than that of normal apricots, they are slightly sour and far more aromatic. The colours range from a rich golden orange to dark brown. They are soft in consistency, but less soft than ordinary apricots.
Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade apricots 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 harvesting, the apricots are washed, pitted, cut into halves and then gently dried using solar energy. 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 in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
