North Bay Produce releases dried fruit lines

Traverse City, Mich.-based North Bay Produce Inc. has added dried fruits to its offerings.

The new line includes blueberries, cherries, cherries with zero-added sugar, cranberries, and whole cranberries, according to a news release.

“Many of the North Bay’s farms grow these fruits and it is another way to offer healthy products that consumers crave,” Nick Osmulski, president of North Bay, said in the release. “For years many of our customers have asked if we might offer dried fruits. So, after extensively studying the best methods of drying to assure that the best flavor and health benefits come through, North Bay is finally ready to launch this exciting new product line.” 

North Bay will have the dried fruit at booth No. 2080 at the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit expo Oct. 18-19 in Anaheim, Calif. 

“There is a real art and science to drying fruit well and we feel that we have perfected the craft,” Jon Wall, vice president of operations of North Bay, said in the release. “We are excited to be launching North Bay Produce Dried Fruits and we believe it will be a hit because most importantly, people will taste the real fruit flavor in every bite.”
