According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Asia Pacific Tropical Fruit Puree Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the Asia Pacific tropical fruit puree market size was 2.93 Million Tons in 2018. Fruit puree refers to the paste or pulp that is prepared by grounding, pressing, sieving, crushing, blending and straining fruits. The fruits are processed until all insoluble fibrous parts are broken down so that they can pass through a fine sieve. For enhancing the shelf-life and lowering the microbiological loading, fruit puree undergoes the process of pasteurization. On account of favorable weather conditions, Asia Pacific represents the largest tropical fruit-producing region across the world. Some of the popular fruits available in the region include guava, mango, papaya, cashew, apple, lychees, jackfruit, sapodilla, and passion fruit.
