UK fruit purée supplier Funkin has changed the way it sources its fruit.

The firm said yesterday (29 June) that its blueberries are now wild-harvested, its bananas are sources from Fairtrade farms and its blackcurrants are organically grown. Funkin said that fruit sourcing for the company is "an evolving process".

A spokesperson for the firm told just-drinks: "The ‘old varieties' of fruit were standard cultivated varieties and Funkin have worked to improve their sourcing to achieve organic, Fairtrade and wild for these three products."

The spokesperson added that the company is "now working on other varieties to make similar improvements".
