Dried Cherries For Qualified Wholesale Buyers

August 7, 2008 | Posted by admin

We have been retailing our dried fruits to consumers for many years. At Brownwood Acres, our policy has always been to offer premium quality, North American grown fruits at reasonable prices. We are a leading seller of premium Montmorency Dried Tart Cherries, Unsweetened Montmorency Dried Cherries, Dried Wild Blueberries and Dried Cranberries.

We are now wholesaling both types of our premium Dried Cherries:

Montmorency Dried Tart Cherries – these top quality Tart Cherries are infused with sugar and oil and are 100% natural! Offered in:

  • 1 lb bags with our FruitFast label which complements our Cherry Concentrate label
  • 1/2 lb bags

Montmorency No Sugar Added Dried Cherries – these contain no added ingredients, just a trace of sunflower oil on the outside to keep them from caking together. They are nice and tart and are loaded with anthocyanins. Since there are no additional ingredients, these Dried Cherries are lighter in weight – meaning you get about twice the amount of cherries per pound. Offered in:

  • 1 lb bags
  • 1/2 lb bags

Brownwood Acres/FruitFast supplies grocery and health food stores around the country with Tart Cherry products including Tart Cherry concentrate, CherryFlex® supplements, liquid supplements and now Dried Cherries.

We are pleased to announce the addition of our Dried Cherries to our wholesale product line, and many of our wholesale accounts are very pleased as well.
