Buy More, Save More

One full bag Japan certified organic JAS, fresh frozen raspberries from the pristine mountainous region of Turkey. No use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. GMO-free. All hand-picked and individually flash-frozen (IQF) right after harvest for freshness. No added sugars, sodium, or refined starches.

These raspberries are the Willamette type - which is the juiciest of them all. They are dark red and harvested in mid-summer. Best used for smoothies, waffles, pancakes, oatmeals, and garden salads. Kids love to eat raspberries just like that. Raspberries are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber and are an excellent source of vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber. Please note that due to the nature of Raspberries, they might arrive mostly crumbled (not as nicely shaped as seen in the image). This does not affect taste and quality.

All our imported fruits and vegetables are strictly tested for E Coli, coliforms, molds, yeasts as well as listeria and salmonella in the country of export, in the country of packaging, and through selective sampling during import inspections in Japan and therefore meet very high microbiological safety standards. However, non-processed products of natural origin, especially non-GMO and certified organic will always have a certain degree of minor defects (less than 5%) these include, decolorations, insect damage, broken damage, crumble damage, squashed damage, over or under maturity, and minor natural non-harmful mold.

Absolutely no added sugars, sodium, or refined starches. No use of chemically synthesized fertilizers and pesticides. See more about certified organic below.

ABOUT CERTIFIED ORGANIC

This product is certified Japan Agricultural Standard Organic (JAS) - both in the country of origin and Japan. Japan has one of the world's strictest organic certification standards. But what does certified organic mean when it comes to fruits and vegetables?

✔ Free of harmful synthetic chemical inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides, antibiotics, food additives, irradiation, and the use of sewage sludge.

✔ Free of genetically modified seeds (non-GMO)

✔ The farmland and soil in use have at least been 3 years free of any chemical treatment before the harvest has been certified as organic.

✔ Organic certifications come with multiple audits or on-site visits a year. Organic producers are rigidly checked and inspected by governmental bodies or certified third parties. Organic certification requires detailed bookkeeping and documentation. This makes organic produce technically 100% traceable from farm to table.

✔ Organic certification standards require a strict separation of non-organic certified produce starting from the farmland, soil, harvesting, processing, export, and even import and storage.

✔ Organic farming is a more sustainable alternative when it comes to food production. The lack of harmful pesticides and a wider variety of plants enhances biodiversity and results in better soil quality and reduced pollution from fertilizer or pesticide run-off.

✔ Organic vegetables and fruits are produced mostly by family-owned farms that own smaller acres of organic land. Although the demand is increasing, organic land does not even make 30% of all farmland in any given country (Japan ranks at the very bottom!). This makes organic farming lucrative and more profitable for farmers and gives them a fair chance to live a sustainable life and support their local communities.

✔ Certified organic in Japan and Australia (as well as in most industrialized countries) is a protected word and the use is legally restricted, meaning that you can be rest assured that Horizon Farms is an officially registered certified organic importer and all organic imported produce has been inspected and verified in the export country as well as in Japan.

It is also important to mention that organic produce is more cost-intensive. Organic farming has lower yields compared to conventional farming and is oftentimes more labor-intensive as well. Additionally, organic certification and auditions require annual fees for producers, exporters, and importers resulting in higher prices for the end consumers.

Nice scent

Translated from Japanese: The raspberries give off a nice scent. I thawed them and blueberries to eat them as they are. Both are delicious.

Translated from Japanese: They go well with sweet and non-sweet things. If all of them were sweet, I'd give you 5 stars.

Translated from Japanese: I bought these because I wanted to make jam with less sweetness.
I’m satisfied with the taste that makes the best use of the sweet and sour taste of raspberries.
I’m very worried about pesticides in whole berries, but I’m grateful that I can rest assured that the products from this shop are safe.
