Cereals and cereal bars

Morning rituals are changing, driven by different lifestyles and socio-economic challenges. To meet this trend, industrial companies are developing new ranges that provide more than just cereals; they provide fruit too. We can provide fruit inclusions with controlled water content and water activity.

These product ranges, fruit centres and fruit pieces are ideal for applications in cereals, muesli, fruit bars and energy bars, cold or hot breakfasts with cereals.
