THE FRUIT CELLAR


Hand crafted speciality food

The Fruit Cellar is a division of Tierhoek offering sulphur-free dried fruit, vegetables and jams.

Having had decades of experience, Tierhoek have developed significant expertise in the sulphur-free dried fruit production process and they’ve decided to launch a non-organic preservative- and sulphur-free range to provide more options for our customers under the brand name The Fruit Cellar.

Sulphur Dioxide is used widely in the dried fruit industry to preserve dried fruit from moulds and insect growth. It is this sulphur that people have an allergy towards and which is not used in The Fruit Cellar range.

Fresh fruit is sourced from local Western Cape farmers who are GlobalG.A.P. and export certified. This means they farm with a minimum of sprays, in some cases no chemicals at all, as well as adhering to strict environmental and labour regulations.

Over the past few years’ customers have asked Tierhoek for a greater variety of sulphur-free dried fruit. Buying sulphur free dried fruit is essential for many people with sulphur allergies as well as those who wish to enjoy delicious dried fruit without any preservatives. The Fruit Cellar range fills the gap where they cannot source sufficient quantities of certified organic fruit to dry.
