Bellaire, MI (PRUnderground) March 17th, 2020
Since 2001, Traverse Bay Farms / Fruit Advantage has never used imported ingredients from China, Turkey or Poland in its 100% pure Montmorency Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate, dried cherries and other all-natural gourmet food products. The company has won 30+ national food award at America’s largest professional food competitions. They are the #1 nationally award winning super fruit brand in America.
The announcement is a welcome change to customers since many companies are still importing ingredients from overseas from countries including China, Poland, Turkey and many others.
According the Andy LaPointe, Director of Marketing with Traverse Bay Farms / Fruit Advantage, “With the recent outbreak of the coronavirus, many people are very concerned about the source of the food they eat. Since starting our company, we have made the commitment to use a much locally grown produce in our products as possible.
Mr. LaPointe continued, “This means Michigan grown cherries for our dried cherries, cherry salsa and more. Our cherry juice concentrate has always been used with 100% pure Montmorency tart cherry juice concentrate. We are located in Northern Michigan. Our rural, farming region grows over 70% of all Montmorency tart cherries in the United States.
“We are located in Bellaire, MI. Bellaire is located halfway between the North Pole and equator. The 45th Parallel North runs right through our village of Bellaire. Within a short 20-minute drive, you can find the best grown fruits and vegetables on the planet.”, Mr. LaPointe said.
Mr. LaPointe continued, “We have received a lot of calls from current customers and new customers wanting to know if our products are imported from countries including China, Italy and Europe. They are comforted to know we don’t and have never used imported cherries in our dried cherries, cherry juice concentrate and other gourmet food products from China.”
Andy also said, “Unlike many of our competitors, some even in Northern Michigan, who actually use imported cherry juice from Turkey, Poland and other countries. We’ve used Michigan-grown cherry juice concentrate in our 100% pure Montmorency Tart cherry Juice Concentrate. Our customers really appreciate they know they aren’t consuming ingredients from parts of the world with major health-related issues. They know it is not imported from overseas. In fact, our label even starts USA Grown Montmorency tart cherry juice concentrate.”
