Mariani dried fruit launches in UK and Europe

Mariani dried fruit, the largest independently-owned producer and packer of dried fruit in the world, is now available in the UK and across Europe.

The Mariani brand has been providing premium quality dried fruit to consumers and customers all over the globe. Mariani is the largest independent producer of dried fruit in the world and produces over 150 million pounds of dried fruit each year. Products can be found in over 40,000 retail outlets in the United States and in over 52 countries around the world.

The Mariani brand has become synonymous with innovation from the first prune dehydrator in 1919, the first clear packaging in 1949 and now the first dried fruit with TouchLock Easy Seal.

Island Fruits, Philippine Mango and Ultimate Apricots are currently available at Costco in the UK and Andy Humphries, newly appointed Director – Mariani Europe – is hoping to attract more retailers to the range in 2012.

He says: “We have a really exciting range of unique products with packaging flexibility, competitive pricing and unparalleled processing capabilities. The Mariani family are passionate about their products and the people who work for them… making them a great company to work with. We are looking to dramatically develop the business within Europe where we know there is a need for innovation”.

“One of the most exciting new products selling well in the USA is Sweetened Dried Cranberries in Matchboxes. We are hoping for similar success here in the UK”.
