What has made us go into further developing this niche product on the UK market is when seeing the elderly in a store reaching for our old Granny’s Secret no sugar added fruit spreads - and of a higher price than the rest of the jams! Yes there are many more on the shelves of any store, but sad to say - loaded with sugar, and a few additives. But if you recognise quality - and what is good for you - you go for it - it’s a treat!
The Forest Bounty’s range is made up of Strawberry, Raspberry, Apricot and Wild Blueberry 100% fruit spreads and, it is now the only range available in UK which uses traditional methods and recipes and which has no added sugar and no additives. Plus they have one of the highest fruit content available in jams – whooping 80%! These artisan spreads are produced in the old-fashioned way using age-old techniques in small batches to guarantee that taste and quality is second to none.
Reducing sugar in our diets is a growing priority and the Forest Bounty Fruit Spreads with no added sugar are at the same time tasty and healthier than traditional preserves. Parents will be delighted to be able to offer a low sugar alternative to their children. Consumers managing medical conditions such as diabetes will also welcome the choice this offers and the fact that the range is gluten-free.
Forest Bounty 100% Fruit Spread is produced using Wild Blueberries that are collected from the hillsides where they grow wild in abundance and have special health benefits including anti-oxidants, raspberries and strawberries also growing in hedgerows and the apricots in traditional orchards. Only the best fruit is selected to go into our fruit spreads!
The introduction of Forest Bounty’s new 100% fruit spread range is accompanied by contemporary packaging with attractive new labels for the 340g jars. The range is free-from category, extremely tasty with rich fruit flavours and suitable for vegans / vegetarians.
Commenting on the launch, Managing Director Snezana Knowles is very enthusiastic about the new range.
“Being healthier than traditional jams means that our fruit spread range will find so many uses at home and in the kitchen. Kids love it in pancakes and desserts. Try using these fruit spreads in cakes or as an accompaniment to puddings and you will be hooked. They are also great at breakfast time on your toast or in porridge. We are really pleased to be introducing this range at a time when everyone is searching for lower sugar options.”
Forest Bounty 100% Fruit Spreads are being made available now to retailers.
