Fig Slurry In a Hurry

FRESNO, CA  — Valley Fig Growers, the leader in fig product innovations, introduces Fig Slurry, the newest product in a line of convenience-oriented fig products for industrial and food service use. Fig Slurry, also available in organic form, joins a stellar line-up of Valley Fig Growers’ products including Soft 40 Fig Paste, Fig Nuggets, Fig Concentrate and whole Mission and Calimyrna figs.

In response to a growing need by industry for a fig product that is pumpable and pourable, Valley Fig Growers has developed Fig Slurry. It incorporates a larger percent of Fig Concentrate to Fig Paste and offers another convenient level of reduced viscosity in the Valley Fig Growers’ line of products. Textured similarly to fruit jams, Fig Slurry offers exceptional nutritional value and taste and is ideal for sauces, marinades, dressings, and foods where a more pliable fig paste is desired. Fig Slurry can add fruit flavor ranging from a delightful hint of sweet fig to an intense, rich lusty fruit flavor, depending on the desired product profile. Available in 5- and 55-gallon containers.

Established in 1959, Valley Fig Growers is the largest handler of figs in North America, representing one half of the California fig industry. Valley Fig Growers packs and markets dried California figs under the Blue Ribbon® Orchard Choice® and Sun-Maid® labels throughout the United States and around the world.
