Processed Fruits & Vegetables

Processed fruits and vegetables are offered in canned or frozen forms. Processed fruits and vegetables are alternative to fresh fruits and vegetables, offering benefits of convenience, easy storage, easy preparation, longer shelf life, and year-round availability. Processed fruits and vegetables retain most vitamins as they are generally processed and packaged within hours of being harvested. Sysco is committed to delivering processed fruit and vegetable products that provide consistency and exceptional value at all quality levels.

Drained Weight Explained

Canned food products are usually packed in a liquid, brine or syrup media. Drained weight is the weight of the contents of a metal can that is drained of its media. This is different from “net weight”. The net weight is the entire weight of the contents including the media and it is usually the printed weight on the can label.
