Cherries can either be sweet or sour based on the exact variety. Cherries are indigenous to Europe, Western Asia and parts of North Africa, and have been consumed since prehistoric times.
Hungary is the largest exporter of sour cherries in Europe. Hungarian sour cherries are some of the best in the world as they are grown in continental climatic conditions which are most suitable for their production, adding nutritional value and taste.
Our factory in Dunakiliti in the north-west of Hungary purchases high quality raw material from producers of four production areas: Ravazd, Agárd, Lake Balaton and Dunavecse.
These four excellent sour cherry varieties of so-called “Pándy” type, are bred in Hungary. They are Good Cropper of Érd (“Érdi bőtermő”), Good Cropper of Debrecen (“Debreceni bőtermő”), Grapy Pándy (“Pándy fürtös”) and Grapy of Újfehértó (“Újfehértói fürtös”).
We process more than 4,000 metric tons of sweet and sour cherries annually in retail (glass jars and cans) and foodservice (cans) packs.
