FPM'S Medjool Bonbon in the FRUIT LOGISTICA 2016 SPOTLIGHT FRUIT INNOVATIONS EDITION


 

Field Produce Marketing recently launched its Bonbon Medjool variety of dates (pictured) and presents it for the first time at FRUIT LOGISTICA. Dates have been a popular food for millennia. However, as the exhibitor points out, date production has seen a number of modern developments in recent times.

One prominent example of this is the Bonbon Medjool; a large date that ripens earlier than other Medjool dates. It also has a soft, smooth skin that makes it feel like a candy in a paper wrapper. Moreover, Bonbon dates are remarkably nutritious. For instance, they contain a lot of protein, roughage, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Packets of dates – which are also available in special gift-wrapping – therefore make the ideal solution for trips and birthday presents for customers who like natural, healthy sweets.
