Description: Our wild organic Fairtrade apricot halves come from wild apricot trees and you can taste it. Their taste is much more intense and stronger, slightly acidic and much more aromatic than normal apricots. The colors vary between a strong golden orange and dark brown. They are still soft in consistency but less soft than ordinary apricots.
Origin and manufacture: We source our wild organic Fairtrade apricot halves exclusively from Uzbekistan. There they mature on wild trees in the remote mountain regions around Samarkand. The area is largely organic and FAIRTRADE certified and is farmed by the FAIRTRADE farmers who live there. The farmers belong to a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. They include around 1,000 individual farmers, along with their families. Thanks to the cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can offer their families a secure income and their children a new perspective. After harvesting, the apricots are washed, halved, stoned and then gently dried with the help of the sun. The drying process used is a very environmentally friendly solar drying method that is extremely gentle on the product. In Austria, the wild apricot halves are standard depressurized. When it comes to printing, the interaction of pressure and time ensures absolute freedom from pests.
