Having had decades of experience, Tierhoek have developed significant expertise in the Sulphur-free dried fruit production process and they’ve decided to launch a non-organic preservative- and Sulphur-free range to provide more options for the customers under the brand name The Fruit Cellar.
Sulphur Dioxide is used widely in the dried fruit industry to preserve dried fruit and prevent moulds and insect growth. It is this Sulphur that causes allergic reactions in people.
The Fruit Cellar uses fresh fruits, sourced from local Western Cape farmers who are Global G.A.P and export certified. This means they farm with a minimum of sprays, in some cases no chemicals at all, as well as adhering to strict environmental and labour regulations.
