Currently the largest producers of fruit and vegetable purees, coulis, and concentrates, it’s hard to believe that Boiron, like so many companies, was a very small, family operated business just a few short years ago. Les Vergers Boiron, was first started in the picturesque Ardéche region located in the south of France. Nestled between the stately peaks of the Alpine mountain range and the Rhone valley, Boiron began as a small fruit trading company. Experiencing rapid growth, within a handful of years they had moved shop from the sleepy region of Ardéche to the famed Rungis market of Paris. Spotting a hole in the market, Boiron began to set about looking for practical and consistent ways to sell their fruits year-round. With an eye towards the future, Les Vergers Boiron started experimenting with their produce, creating preliminary samples of the fruit purees they are known for today.
After persistent testing and experimentation, Pierre Boiron, the founder’s son, came up with a revolutionary way to capture and preserve the amazing taste of fruits at their peak. Using a pasteurization process individualized to each fruit and vegetable, they were able to create intensely flavorful purees that tasted just as good as a ripe and juicy fruit picked straight from the vine. This specialized method ensures that the maximum amount of flavor and color is retained from each piece of produce. A brilliant development, the Boiron method remains the single best way to preserve produce at its peak and is still employed today.
By 1970 Boiron had perfected its pasteurization method and was the first business to launch frozen fruit purees onto the open market. The introduction of their revolutionary product marked a real breakthrough in the world of food and pastry. Since those first days, Les Vergers Boiron has continued to press the limits of what natural purees can do, consistently reworking their approach to achieve better results and offer the consumer more valuable options. With the introduction of blended fruit purees, vegetable-based products, coulis, concentrates, and more, Boiron has held its place at the forefront of the industry. Not content with simply making the best tasting products, Les Vergers Boiron has also placed special importance on the functionality of their foods, creating thoughtfully made, and carefully designed packaging for each of their exceptional offerings. This effective combination has made them a chef favorite and an industry-standard throughout the years.
