  • Our Services
    A Kiwi a Day and Progressive Processors Ltd are producers, suppliers and exporters of Kiwifruit product base (purees and kiwifruit juice) to juice and food manufacturers world-wide.

    Our purees and kiwifruit juice are manufactured from pure whole ripened New Zealand kiwifruit and contain no artificial flavouring, colouring or preserving agents and have not been heat treated. They therefore retain the fruit's natural flavour, green colour and have almost the same nutritional features for which Kiwifruit is renowned - high in dietary fibre, vitamin C, potassium, vitamin E, and avilable sugars, but low in fat, cholesterol, starch, sodium and calories.

    Our Puree (seed-out) is supplied frozen and can be used in a wide range of products from beverage fruit juice drinks to ingredients for yoghurts, dairy foods, jams, confectionery and food manufacture.

    Our Puree (seed-in) is supplied frozen and can be used in a wide range of products from whole fruit juice drinks to ingredients for jam, confectionery, yoghurts, dairy foods and food manufacturing.

    Our kiwifruit juice is supplied frozen and can be used in a range of potential products for the hospitality, catering and food processing industries plus household consumers. It is a light green frozen product with a fine crystal texture. At -18 deg C the product retains a consistency such that it can be scooped. The kiwifruit juice concentrate is at 35 Brix and has a specific gravity of 1.18. Colour based on Munsell System is M1.

    Storage. For the Purees and kiwifruit juice the recommended storage temperature is -18 deg C or below. Storage life is more than 12 months. The kiwifruit juice concentrate once reconstituted into a drink should be consumed within 3 days.

    Packaging. The Purees and kiwifruit juice product are presented in bulk 20 kg polylined cartons, taped closed and branded.

    Potential products from AKAD kiwifruit juice include frozen juice consumer packs, refrigerated ready to serve packs, refrigerated drink dispenser packs, ice sticks, ice-cream and yoghurt flavourings.

    As a drink, the kiwifruit juice concentrate may be thawed by dilution with water (2 parts water to 1 part frozen kiwifruit juice concentrate) to produce a ready chilled drink. On reconstitution the fine kiwifruit particles are evenly dispersed and suspended in the drink resulting in a natural appearance which is unmistakeably Kiwifruit.

    As an ice bar or ice stick, the kiwifruit juice concentrate may be thawed by dilution with water in a 1:1 ratio, followed immediately by moulding, freezing and packaging to produce a unique ice confectionary.

    As a flavouring for ice-cream of yoghurt, the kiwifruit juice concentrate may be used undiluted.
