For Tradin Organic, the global front runner in organic food ingredients, busy times are ahead. Starting February, the Moroccan Strawberries are in season, and it’s just one of the options in a wide variety of frozen fruits, berries and vegetables that Tradin Organic offers. Despite the turbulent times, preparations are going well and the team is ready to meet consumer demands for fully certified organic ingredients.
Morocco as a prime and stable organic strawberry source
Over the last years, Morocco has become a bigger source for organic strawberries. The varieties are mainly Camarossa, such as Fortuna, Sabrina and Victoria. For the fresh industry, picking and production start early in November, but for the frozen strawberries, February is the month that everyone has been waiting for.
At Tradin Organic, the organic strawberries are available frozen (IQF), which are great for direct consumer packaging and different industrial purposes such as freeze drying and jam production. We also supply organic strawberry concentrate and puree, which can be used as an ingredient in juices, smoothies, yoghurts, ice cream and desserts.

COVID-19 and overcoming challenges
Tradin Organic employs an extensive international team of locally stationed field scouts who work directly with farmers and processors to guarantee organic and ethical integrity, full transparency, and a secure supply of a wide range of organic ingredients.
However, the risks and uncertainties of COVID-19 are still visible in this strawberry season. For example, the IQF production facilities are hard to organise due to social distancing and the risk of shortage of workers can impact the speed of the harvesting. Despite these challenges, expectations are looking bright for the season. In comparison to last year, the volume of production is expected to increase.
Understanding the complexity of todays’ retail environment and forecasting challenges that they may pose is key, so Trading Organic always strives to adapt and seek workable solutions to any complication.
