WHO WE ARE

Crunchies started with the innovative idea of bringing freeze-dried fruit and vegetable snacks to the market. Using our global capabilities at Chaucer, the freeze-dried category leader, we produced a simple snack with a simple idea: Better-for-you snacking that focuses on quality, traceability, and texture.

Our global supply chain and vertical manufacturing process means we control our products from farm to table. So what does this mean for you? You know where your food comes from, and you know exactly what’s in it.

Being a part of the Chaucer Foods family means we will continue to expand the snack category with new and exciting ideas that go back to our roots. To learn more about Chaucer, and what makes us different from other freeze-dried brands, click HERE.

STRAWBERRIES

When most people hear, “Morocco”, they think “Casablanca” and not strawberries. But, surprise, this small African country on the Atlantic Ocean is a major provider of strawberries. Its unique geography makes for high quality, flavorful berries.

For certain months of the year, Crunchies sources its delicious strawberries from the Loukkos River Valley in Morocco. The Loukkos River originates in the Rif Mountains and flows into the Atlantic. The Loukkos River basin is one of the most fertile and productive agricultural lands in the country, producing some of the best quality fruit in the world.

APPLES

We searched the globe for the best-tasting apples and found them right here in the state of Washington. Apples are harvested each year between August and November at the peak of their ripeness. Advanced storage technologies make it so that the apples are fresh and available year round.

Our favorite apples are Gala, Fuji, and Granny Smith and you’ll find a variety of them in your bag depending on the season. Because apples contain natural sugars, called fructose, they are always sweet when Freeze-dried, making them the perfect snack with no additives.

Quality is important when choosing a region, that’s why our Apples are grown right here in the U.S.

BANANAS

After searching in Central America, South America and Asia, we believe the best tasting banana is a special variety from a small region in southwestern China. We source our bananas from the Fujian Province, known for its picturesque mountains, beautiful waterways, prolific tea-growing and delicious bananas. These bananas are processed by our western-managed freeze-dry facility in China. This facility is held to the highest standards of the Global Food Safety Initiative.

The Fujian Province has a subtropical climate ideal for banana growing. With mild winters, hot summers, and an average annual precipitation of 55-79 inches, the Fujian Province is the perfect location to source our delicious bananas. This sweet, ripe banana bursts with flavor, has the ideal color and crunches to perfection.

Fujian is traditionally described as “Eight parts mountain, one part water, and one part farmland.”
