How are we different?

The pineapples used for our organic pineapple rings come from the best growing region in Ghana, and are grown on certified organic plantations owned by independent fruit farmers, and supported by the sustainable block farming model. This association of local farmers supports regional development and the organic farming industry in Ghana. Farmers are trained, supported, and paid fairly in order to ensure they can produce a stable yield and maintain their livelihoods. Many producers obtain their pineapples from large plantations, where poor working conditions and the use of pesticides are common.

Two of the world's largest pineapple varieties, Smooth Cayenne and MD2, are grown on small plantations. A mixture of the two varieties results in a balance between sweet (MD2) and sour (Smooth Cayenne) flavours.

As the fruits take 13-15 months to reach harvest maturity, each pineapple plant can only be harvested once per year. Fully ripened fruits are harvested, then immediately processed.

Many suppliers export unprocessed pineapples in order to reduce costs, meaning that many pineapple products on the market are made from pineapples harvested before ripening, in order to store them for longer before processing. Pineapples continue to ripen after harvesting, but barely develop any flavour and do not develop a high vitamin content. Sugar and artificial flavours and sweeteners are often added to these pineapples to ensure a "typical" pineapple taste. However, our pineapple rings are made of 100% pure, dried fruit with no need for additives such as sugar, sweeteners or preservatives.

Pineapple

The pineapple (Ananas comosus) belongs to the bromeliaceae plant family and is an unusual plant. Each plant produces only one pineapple, which takes a full 13 to 15 months to grow before it is ready for harvesting. The fruit is made up of a berry cluster and a fruit stem axis. The term "comosus" is the Latin term for mophead, and refers to the fruit's leaves, which resemble the head of a mop.

Pineapple cultivation has a long history. The plant was used by the indigenous peoples of South America for food and wine, and as a natural remedy. Portuguese sailors who came across the fruit helped it to gain global popularity. However, the fruit's relatively short shelf life made it difficult to trade. This led to the pineapple becoming a status symbol in Europe, and cultivation of the plants became fashionable among British aristocrats in the 17th century.

Several varieties of pineapple exist, including Smooth Cayenne, MD2, Spanish, Queen, Pernambuco and Perolera. The Smooth Cayenne variety is one of the top cultivars, and produces pineapples which weigh up to 4kg each. It is characterised by its aromatic flavour and light yellow flesh. The MD2 variety is another important cultivar, which is characterised by a sweeter flavour and lower acidity.

Region and Processing

Following the sustainable block farming model, our supplier works with many local farmers, supporting regional development and the organic farming industry in Ghana. As the fruits take 13-15 months to reach harvest maturity, each pineapple plant can only be harvested once per year. Cultivation is therefore planned in such a way that one harvest can take place in spring and a second in autumn.

After washing and peeling, the pineapples are de-stemmed, then sliced. The slices are then dried with warm air. This gentle process preserves their full aroma, their pale yellow flesh, and their valuable vitamin, mineral and enzyme content. The dried pieces have a soft texture, and the mixture of the two varieties results in a well-balanced, sweet and sour flavour.
