Dried apricots are one of Red River’s most popular offerings. In the retail market, they are used in trail mixes, snack bars, sauces, bakery products, as well as a separately packaged item. Apricots are high in fiber, containing four grams per serving out of an approximate 30 grams required daily.
Turkey is the world’s leading apricot producer. The Malatya Province is the center of the country’s dried apricot industry, renowned for producing the highest quality, sweetest apricots. We source all of our dried apricots from Malatya where we maintain an office staffed with local representatives who ensure product quality, from buying, to processing and packaging. Typically, apricots are sulfated to preserve color, but we also supply non-sulfated natural or organic dried apricots. Non-sulfated and organic apricots take on a deep, rich brown color.
