STRAWBERRY PURE AND CONCENTRATE season 2021
The season has started very slow, it is expected that strawberry puree and concentrate season 2021 wont change significantly. We have had very low temperatures in the south of Spain and almost no fruit has been harvested.
aster is the date where more fruit is usually collected, and the expected rise in temperatures in the coming days will make the fruit ripen faster. At the moment, it is not expected that there will be many price variations compared to last year because, although less area has been planted, some 6000 hectares of fresh fruit markets have been somewhat stopped.
it speaks of a reduction in production of 2%, which, being so tight, will not be decisive for a price variation.
We are also very attentive to the harvest from Morocco, Mexico and Poland, which seems to help maintain these prices.
The strawberry puree is prepared from selected fruit and washed, crushed and passed through a metal mesh. The sieve of the mesh is usually about 0.5 mm, which gives us a homogeneous puree with a good texture, being able to have the bostwiches around 8 – 10.
Types of pure:
Strawberry plantations are mainly located in the Huelva area of Spain. Strawberries are rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin A, niacin, vitamin E, potassium, copper, manganese and also phosphorous. Formerly we could find single varietal strawberry plantations for industrial production such as Camarosa.
Nowadays it is very difficult to find them and the purees are made from a mixture of strawberry varieties. This is due to the fact that the strawberry is planted with the most tasty and appetizing varieties for the fresh market. Depending on the sieve used in production we can find strawberry puree with seed and seedless strawberry puree.
Uses and technical data:
Strawberry puree is used by many companies that manufacture jams, ice creams, juices or also compotes or cakes. The aseptic process guarantees the preservation of all the organoleptic characteristics of the strawberry puree.

The drums are normally metal although we can also pack them in cardboard drums.
