Puratos Fourayes is the UK's number one grower and processor of fruit. Located in Kent, the BRC AA rated factory is surrounded by our 100-acre English Bramley apple orchard, which along with the nearby farms we also buy from, is Red Tractor Farm Assured.
In 2022 Fourayes, a family run business, became part of Puratos, a fellow family-owned business with over 100 years of rich and varied knowledge in bakery, patisserie, and chocolate. It was an ideal fit with both companies being customer-focused and heritage-rich with innovation, people, and sustainability at their core.
Puratos Fourayes is part of the Puratos local and transparent fruit sourcing programme.

Puratos Fourayes is home to our delicious jam, mincemeat and fruit fillings manufacturing as well as apple processing.
It is also where we make Utterly Fruity, which is a unique collection of real fruit and vegetable pieces, specially formulated to overcome moisture migration issues in bakery and patisserie products.
Utterly Fruity allows for the inclusions of fruits and vegetables in baked goods, while maintaining their fresh fruit integrity in harsh mixing and high tempertatures. It also never freezes making it perfect for frozen desserts too.
Our Taste Tomorrow research has identified that consumers all over the world are looking for food with a variety of textures; Utterly Fruity was created to be the perfect inclusion for adding both texture and flavour. It is available in four different varieties: Bramley Apple, Cranberry, Carrot and Beetroot. The Puratos Fourayes range complements the full Puratos fruit fillings portfolio, with more fruit and less of the rest as well as superior performance in finished goods.
