Oregon Fruit Products today announced a new line of compotes, heralding an expansion of its award-winning Fruit In Hand line for the foodservice market. Launching peach and mixed berry flavors with more varieties to come, Oregon Fruit is providing a delicious fruit topping that can only be surpassed in quality and flavor by making it fresh.

Oregon Fruit’s new compotes are thick and rich in flavor, much like a cooked compote, with large pieces of fruit throughout. It is ideal for layering or topping breakfast and dessert dishes such as parfaits, cheesecake, pancakes, yogurt, waffles, crepes, and French toast. The compotes also elevate a variety of protein dishes such as salmon or pork.

“Many ready-made compotes and pie fillings use low-quality fruit and add sugar, coloring and flavor,” says Becky Westby, director of foodservice and ingredients at Oregon Fruit Products. “Fruit In Hand Compotes eliminate costly labor and prep time, and taste as if they were prepared moments ago in the back of the house with fresh-picked fruit. We are delighted that we can bring this new product line to market for our quick-service and fine-dining customers.”

Fruit in Hand Compotes are made by hand-selecting fresh fruit picked at the peak of ripeness. It is manufactured to maintain the vivid flavor and color of the fruit and lightly sweetened with cane sugar to enhance the fruits’ natural sugars. It contains no artificial flavors or colors, and no high fructose corn syrup. It is certified Kosher, vegetarian, gluten-free and is non-GMO. Using Fruit in Hand Compotes couldn’t be easier: it ships frozen in one-gallon pails, defrosts within hours under refrigeration, and stays fresh for up to 10-14 days.
