Apple

Apples are a particularly nutritious fruit as they contain fibre, vitamins (C & A), antioxidants and minerals which are all beneficial to the body. Among the numerous health benefits, apples have anti-aging, calming and fever-reducing properties.

The apple season in Greece begins in September and lasts until November. The main varieties used by CHB-VITOM are Starkin (low acidity) and Granny Smith (high acidity).

The main products derived from apples produced by CHB are the following:

Apple Puree: Made from the processing of fresh, mature apples, Starkin and Granny Smith varieties, which have been peeled and destoned. Apple puree is stored in aseptic bags in drums or aseptic tanks.

Apple juice NFC & Concentrate (clarified): Made from mature Greek apples with high or low acidity, from Starkin or Granny Smith variety accordingly. Apple juice is available in NFC or concentrated form and is packed in aseptic bags or aseptic tanks for bulk transportation.
