SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., May 28, 2019 — Seawind Foods, a trusted producer and supplier of all-natural dehydrated fruits, vegetables, and spices to industrial food processors, retailers, and national consumer brands, will be exhibiting during the 2019 Institute of Food Technologists annual expo – IFT19 in New Orleans, LA. Seawind will be debuting new fruit products which will be available at booth #2413 for attendees to sample.

Seawind’s dried fruit products are unique to the marketplace because they are guaranteed to be True NO SO2™, meaning they never contain any unnatural sulfites. Seawind does not use sulfur dioxide in its preservation and dehydration process, ensuring a high level of quality in its products. This approach to the dehydration process allows fruit to increase its nutritional integrity when it comes to Vitamin A, Iron, Calcium and other essential ingredients.

“At Seawind, providing the best customer service and the highest quality natural ingredients comes first,” says Garry Green, President and CEO of Seawind Foods. “We take pride in our customer partnerships and helping to create products that are healthier and better-tasting than those made with unnatural sulfites to reduce the danger posed to consumers with sulfite allergies or sensitivities.”

IFT19 will be June 2-5 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. According to IFT, this annual expo is one of the largest bringing together all areas of food science including research and design, ingredients, safety and quality, technology, equipment, processing, packaging, manufacturing, suppliers and buyers, policy makers, and academics.

Seawind Foods will showcase its high-quality ingredients, demonstrating why their products and approach to the marketplace is positively unique. With food quality, safety, and transparency at the forefront of product development, Seawind will explain how they meet, even exceed, the strict US regulatory environment.
