Freeze-dried fruits of the best quality
Freeze-dried fruits in bulk packs? Yes, you heard us right! At KoRo, you can now buy freeze-dried fruits in convenient value packs – without having to worry that the fruit will spoil before you can finish it. Due to the particularly gentle preservation process of freeze-drying, our fruits are extremely durable. However, it is not only the long shelf life that is convincing, but also the intense taste which makes our hearts beat faster.
Freeze-drying to enjoy fruits all year round
At KoRo you can get freeze-dried fruits all year round - the best thing about this is that you will never have to wait for your favourite fruit’s season. We harvest the fruits in their homeland precisely when they have reached the optimum level of ripeness, and undergo then drying process.
Gentle preservation process
The manufacture of freeze-dried fruits is a little more expensive and time consuming than other drying procedures – however, it is worthwhile. Our fruits are picked when ripe and are frozen soon afterwards. By means of a vacuum process they are then dried, as their liquid content is removed from them. This is called sublimation: the water molecules are transformed into steam. Freeze-drying makes the fruits durable for a longer period of time, and the colour, flavour, and even vitamins of the fruit are preserved. Too good to be true? Try our incredibly aromatic freeze-dried cranberries, if you don’t believe us!
Vitamins are preserved
Have you ever wondered if freeze-dried fruits are just as healthy as fresh fruits? Then listen up! When freeze-drying the fruits, most of the contained vitamins are preserved. Thus, you can partially substitute conventional fruits with freeze-dried fruit without concerns.
The colourful variety of our freeze-dried fruit
We have freeze-dried fruits of all shapes and colours for you, so that you can enjoy all sorts of exotic fruits also during the North European winter months. Because of the freeze-drying, the fruity fresh aroma is preserved, and will bring joy and a touch of summer to your every meal.
Rare and tropical fruits are, of course, not as good and fresh as they are in their home region, as they have to be harvested and shipped when still unripe, and the long journey to Europe is often damaging for their looks and taste. Freeze-drying the fresh, ripe fruits back in their lands of origin, ensures the maintaining of the fruit’s sweetness! This is why our freeze-dried banana chips are so incredibly sweet and aromatic.
Freeze-dried fruits with chocolate
From now on there’s no need to decide between fruity and chocolaty anymore: at KoRo you can get freeze-dried fruits dipped in chocolate. No matter which chocolate you prefer – whole milk, dark, or white chocolate – we took care to include everyone! How about some skinny dipped freeze-dried raspberries covered with white chocolate? This combination will certainly get you hooked. If you are a dark chocolate fan instead, try our freeze-dried strawberries in dark chocolate.
Ways to use freeze-dried fruit
Freeze-dried fruits can be part of many recipes. You can use them wherever you also would use fresh fruits. The best thing about freeze-dried fruits is that you never have to worry whether they are already sufficiently ripe or have already gone bad.

How does freeze-drying work?
We are going to explain to you, with the help of an example of our freeze-dried peach slices, how the procedure of freeze-drying works. The peaches are picked when ripe and are frozen soon afterwards; placed then in a vacuum chamber, they are dried by removing the frozen water from them without turning it into water: this process is called sublimation – the water molecules do not become liquid again, but transform directly into steam. At the end of this complex process, our peaches will have become super durable, and also their colour and flavour will be preserved. The process of freeze-drying is regarded as quite complex, but you will see that it is well worth it.
Is freeze-dried fruit okay during pregnancy?
Since our freeze-dried fruits are very similar to the original fruits, except that they only lack some liquid, they are suitable for consumption also during pregnancy. Moreover, our freeze-dried fruits come without any additives, so that you can enjoy them without any concern.
How can I use freeze-dried fruits?
In our food journal we have plenty of recipes for you. How about some homemade chocolate enriched by various types of freeze-dried fruits? Or a refreshing summery drink with freeze-dried raspberries? Freeze-dried fruits are also the perfect topping for all kinds of healthy bowls. As you can see, our freeze-dried fruits will definitely bring an extra touch to your culinary creations.
