Health Benefits of Little Beauties Dried Fruits

Homegrown, Healthy Dried Fruit Will Tick All Your Snack Boxes!

We’re of the belief that delicious snacks shouldn’t just taste great but should be good for you too.  We know that preserved fruits never went out of fashion; they just got a whole lot better with our drying process lovingly crafted by our team at Little Beauties.  

Let’s just say we’ve raised the bar when it comes to offering healthier snacks and when it comes to choosing your favourite it’s going to be a tough pick!

We use a couple of drying methods for our dried fruits that capture the incredible fruit flavours plus retain all their natural fruity goodness too.  All that goodness we’ve all come to love and admire in fresh fruit is now available here in our dried fruit range.  

Every slice or piece of dried fruit is a hit of pure and simple goodness in just one bite. 

So whether you’re a lover of sweet and silky gold kiwifruit or your thing is enjoying the unique flavour of feijoa, they’re perfect for your afternoon pick me up or for a lunchbox snack the little ones will love.
