how do we capture all the colourful goodness? We only work with the best produce in the region transforming it into delicious, high quality products for people who want to experience the true taste of the tropics.
Our company's expertise lies in the production and creation of premium tropical food and beverages. The use of specialised technology in the process allows us to preserve all the taste and nutrients from the fruits and vegetables. High Pressure Processing (HPP) uses very high levels of pressure to kill the bacteria without affecting the taste, smell, colour and most of all, the nutritional quality of the product. This is how the best of two worlds meet: technology and tastefulness of the tropic.
We work closely with our sister company Capricho who has 38 years of experience in the fruit sourcing process in the Dominican Republic. Our partnership means that we control the entire process from the farm to the puree, ensuring only the best fruits are used for our products.
the way we choose to live
no man is an island and we believe passionately in working together to help improve our communities for all. as such, TROPICSOUL sources from more than 90 local farmers in the Dominican Republic.
These are family owned micro businesses that benefit directly from our business, providing an incredible opportunity to generate growth, prosperity and security in the poorest regions of the country. All of our fruits and vegetables are ethically grown by farmers with as much passion for the land as for the produce.
