Oregon Fruit Products, LLC, introduced a new limited line of Oregon Fruit Aseptic Concentrates. These are real fruit concentrates that are aseptically processed, which makes them ideal for fruited ciders, the ready-to-drink category (RTDs), and beers.
The global cider market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.92% from 2018 to 2025, reaching $15.84 billion in sales in the US.
“To be successful in today’s market, breweries and cider makers seek to diversify their portfolios. For brewers, that means offering interesting, unique beers while branching into non-beers like seltzers and RTDs. For cider makers, it is important to deliver new flavors and styles of ciders,” said Chris Hodge, Director of Sales for Oregon Fruit Products. “Our concentrates help lower COGs and drive inspiration and excitement for new ciders, beers and other trending fermentation categories.”
Offering a small portfolio to start, the line includes mango, grapefruit and lemon. Oregon Fruit Aseptic Concentrates ideal for clarified beverages because they don’t contain fiber, thus filtering is not required.
With fruit concentrates, Oregon Fruit Products is aiming to be a one-stop supplier of real fruit for the fermentation industry. The concentrates deliver bold real fruit flavor for a variety of beverages, blend well, provide savings by being shelf stable and maximizing storage space, and are delivered in easy-to-use 5-gallon bag in box (BIBs) packaging.
They also add potency and work well in combination with Oregon Fruit Purees for top noting.
