Okanagan Specialty Fruits has announced the launch of Arctic apple slices to the c-store market. Arctic apples’ fresh slices are available in two sizes and two varieties: Arctic Golden, which are sweet, and Arctic Granny, which are tart, in both 10-ounce and five-ounce bags. Arctic apples use the apple’s own genes to “turn off” the enzyme responsible for making apples turn brown when cut or bruised. The result is a longer shelf life and an apple that tastes and looks better, which means less food waste from harvest to consumption.
Arctic apples are created for those who believe wholesome foods are essential for a healthy lifestyle and are looking for fruits that are unmatched in quality, convenience and sustainability.
