Dried Fruit Around the World

When we buy most food products, we normally don't think about where they come from. When it comes to dried fruits, there are several countries across the globe those ship products to the rest of the world. You might not know that the United States produces a large portion of that total number. In fact, the U.S. ranks in the top three when it comes to the production and exportation of dried fruits and dried fruit-related products.

Top 5 Dried Fruit Producers Across the World

While dried fruit products are produced across the world, there are five that are known to be the top producers according to They include:

  • United States – 16%
  • Turkey – 16%
  • Iran – 13%
  • Saudi Arabia – 7%
  • China – 5%

Different areas of the world produce a wide variety of fruits and nuts that are dried and packaged for wholesale use, mainly based on what type of fresh fruits are grown in that region. . The dried fruits produced in the United States are sold to both wholesalers as well as retail customers who are purchasing products in bulk (or in smaller sizes) for their families. People, including chefs, professional bakers, and distributors, who want the highest quality products want to purchase from producers they trust. That is why so many of them choose Sunrise Fresh!

Do You Receive Freshness Guarantees with Dried Fruit Products from Other Countries?

Bulk producers from other countries may or may not provide a freshness guarantee with their products. This will mostly depend on what the rules or regulations are concerning labeling and disclosures. Many countries do not require the producers of dried fruit products to disclose any information about how their products are produced or packaged for resale. The United States, however, has strict guidelines for both disclosures as well as labeling. The FDA, for example, requires a high level of transparency in terms of freshness, ingredients, and whether or not a product is organic or not.  And, of course, all Sunrise Fresh products are FDA approved.
