Rhubarb Snack from Anne's PEI Farm a Success in Japan
Rhubarb Snack from Anne’s PEI Farm a Success in Japan
Anne’s PEI Farm grows and sells organic and non-genetically modified (non-GM) products both nationally and internationally. Their current products include organically produced berry preserves, non-GM canola, organic soybeans and organic dandelion roots. They work with local farmers in Prince Edward Island to explore new business opportunities. The company is presently making plans to set up a processing plant.
In 2007, the partners of Anne’s PEI Farm approached the Food Technology Centre with the intention of exploring new products with potential for the Japanese market. Since then, FTC has carried out product and process development both in bench top scale and pilot plant scale.
This year, processing of organic dried sweetened rhubarb was carried out in FTC’s pilot plant, using locally grown organic rhubarb. The company’s intention was to supply a test market volume of organic dried sweetened rhubarb product to customers in Japan. This dried sweetened rhubarb has a well-blended flavour of rhubarb, cane sugar and maple syrup, and can be used as a snack or as a bakery ingredient.
