For a start the pineapples, mangoes and coconuts used for the "yummy by nature" products are grown in small community farms which have been looked after by the same families for generations.

When the fruit is harvested it's moved to a state of the art drying facility right next to the fields so that the food is as fresh as it can be and food waste during transportation is minimised.

In the drying facility the fruit is cut by hand and dried with the help of sustainable solar power using a technique dating back to Roman times. The process requires nothing to be added for the fruit to be preserved - no sugar, salt, preservatives or sulphites.
