Raspberries

Velvety seducers

The raspberry is a juicy red-pink fruit with a hollow core. Raspberries are made up of clusters of smaller fruits, each with an edible seed. Raspberry are velvety to the touch and vary in size, firmness and taste. Their taste is delicious: from slightly sour to sweet.

Growing and harvesting

Handpicked

Raspberries are shrub plants that originate from the rose family. The cuttings are planted in pots. After two months, the plants are around one and a half metres high. A raspberry that turns orange to light red is ready for harvesting. This is done very carefully by hand. The less the delicate fruit is touched, the better the quality. Immediate packaging and cooling are also essential. After harvesting, the raspberries are delivered to Berries Pride as quickly as possible via an optimal supply chain.

Packaging options

Also tailor-made

Because raspberries are very delicate, they deserve a good protective packaging that optimally preserves the product quality.

EAT ME raspberry packaging varies from cardboard or plastic trays of 125 grams to heart-shaped punnets of 170 grams. If you prefer a tailor-made solution, please contact Robin Euwe to discuss options.

Because the market constantly changes, we are always looking for the optimal combination. We will soon be introducing a sustainable packaging line for all our berries. Stay informed via our newsletter!

Storage advice

For optimal flavour retention

  • Transport Refrigerated storage and transport are essential. Raspberries prefer a temperature between 2 and 4˚C.
