One full bag 1kg (2.2lbs) of ACO certified organic, also Japan certified organic JAS, fresh frozen strawberries from Turkey. All hand-picked and individually flash-frozen (IQF) right after harvest for freshness. These strawberries vary in size from 18mm - 26mm (3/4 inch to 1-1/32 inch). No added sugars or further treatments done.
These strawberries are from a mountainous region of Turkey, about a 5-hour car drive from Istanbul. Due to the mountainous climate (extreme temperature differences between day and night) these strawberries are very rich in deep red color and sharp (slightly sour) taste.
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.
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.

Translated from Japanese: This is my second purchase. The strawberries are quite big and have a strong scent, so I’m satisfied every time. I will order again.
Translated from Japanese: Last time, they were small and easy to use, so I ordered them again, but this time they were large. I'm using them as yogurt topping, so I thought it’d be better if I cut them next time. But they’re still very easy to use.
Translated from Japanese: The scent is good. I want to eat a lot of strawberries in the spring, so I’m grateful for such products because I’m worried about residual pesticides in domestic products.
Translated from Japanese: This is a reorder. I like the organic, fragrant and natural sweetness. Another person's review said, "If you add banana to make a smoothie, it looks like ice cream and is delicious," so I tried it immediately and it was really delicious.
Translated from Japanese: I’m happy to be able to eat pesticide-free strawberries.
I haven't eaten the cherries that I ordered together with them yet because I opened these first, but I'm looking forward to eating them soon, too.
