Certified Organic Frozen Sweet Dark Cherries from Turkey (1kg)

Description

One full bag of Australia certified organic, also Japan certified organic JAS, fresh frozen sweet dark cherries from the pristine mountainous region of Turkey. Hand-picked, mechanically pitted, and individually flash-frozen (IQF) right after harvest for freshness.

These seedless cherries are sweeter and darker in color, compared to the sour cherries. These can be used for anything the heart desires. Cakes, granolas, cocktails, smoothies, ice-cream, or just like that - frozen. 

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.

They seem to be good for beauty ♪

Translated from Japanese: I put the amount of berries I want to eat the next day in the refrigerator overnight and put them on yogurt in the morning.
Children aged 5 and 3 can also eat sugar-free yogurt deliciously.
I finished them within a week so quickly, so I will reorder them.
I'm glad that this mix contains blackberries, as they’re hard to come by.

J
J.

Translated from Japanese: It's great to be able to easily eat a lot of fruits at any time. I feel that the taste is stronger than that of raw fruit. I mix the berries with yogurt and milk and enjoy them every day.

Safe and organic frozen berry mix

Translated from Japanese: These are the best organic frozen berries that you can eat with confidence.
They’re a little expensive, but sour and very delicious to put in yogurt or smoothies.
I decided to reorder them once I finish them!

Translated from Japanese: This mix has large strawberries and they’re perfect for pancakes and French toast.

Valuable organic berries

Translated from Japanese: They’re expensive, organic and safe.
The berries are big, sweet and very delicious.
I thawed them in the fridge the night before.
The next morning, I love to mix them with protein and eat them like dessert.
