Did you know pomegranate is classified as a super fruit?
See the Top 5 health benefits of pomegranate below…
Originally found mostly in Middle Eastern cuisine, pomegranates are now increasingly popular across Europe for both flavour and health properties of the fruit.
Growers across Turkey, Greece and Tunisia have seen a huge increase over the last 10 years in the demand for the ‘super fruit’. We continue to see a significant use of Rungis International Market in Paris as a northern European hub for pomegranate for onward transit to UK and Ireland.
Earlier this month our guys in Rungis were on-hand to drop in on the Spotlight on Tunisian Pomegranate in the E3 pavilion to taste the very best in fresh pomegranate and also sample cooked pomegranate starters, main courses and deserts prepared by top chefs.
Our cross-dock facility in Rungis International Market, PARIS allows us to link Irish businesses with many Spanish Fruit & Vegetable suppliers who are already delivering into Rungis Market.
