With 2023 in full swing, many of us are starting the year off with a focus on wellbeing. Nutrition is a big part of this renewed health focus, with people exploring the nutritional and environmental benefits that come with plant-based eating.
Ingredients like cranberries, which are packed with antioxidants, fibre and vitamin C, are plant-based powerhouses. Ocean Spray makes enjoying healthy and delicious dishes easy with their Ocean Spray® 50% Less Sugar Craisins® Dried Cranberries that are packed with antioxidants and free from artificial flavours, colours and preservatives.
Aligning with customers’ environmental values, Ocean Spray is also the first fruit cooperative in North America to verify 100 per cent of its crop as sustainably grown, with all profits going back to farming families.
