We began as a consumer brand with one mission: to champion the date fruit. We are now a leading UK date ingredients supplier, taking collaborative partnerships one step further by offering bespoke solutions, technical expertise and market insights.
After years of development, we extracted the delicious elixir from the fruit, bottled it and launched our unique date juice concentrate, known as Date Nectar under our consumer brand. By developing our consumer range, we found it not only to be a great sweetener but also a great binder; so, we launched the world’s first granola bound with natural date juice concentrate (not nasty glucose syrup).
…and that’s where the idea of developing a range of 100% date ingredients was born.
We’ve gained in-depth understanding of consumer needs, practical application to reducing refined sugars, and expert development of natural, healthier and delicious products. We specialise in creating innovative solutions for food manufacturers to keep their customers healthy and happy.
In line with the government plans to reduce sugar intake and increase fibre intake, market trends towards clean and clear labels, and consumer expectations of healthier yet delicious food, we whole-heartedly believe dates are the answer.
As an ingredient, dates offer a great solution for reducing sugar content, enhancing taste, increasing fibre content, and making clean, gluten-free, vegan, no refined sugar, and 100% natural claims on food labels.
Let us show you how dates, date juice concentrates and date paste can help improve your product’s nutrition and exceed the expectations of your customers.
We are here to create long-term partnerships. Our team, based in our Knowledge Centre in the UK, is dedicated to food safety, quality and innovation. You’ll be in safe hands, and so will your customers. Our technical and product development team can provide bespoke solutions for your products. Need to improve your product label?

Transparency and authenticity are gaining an increasing importance in the eyes of consumers. They are curious about the story, origin and sustainability of their food. We therefore source our dates globally from responsible suppliers who provide sustainable employment, development and research to their local date farms.
Our factories are HACCP certified and independently audited with strong traceability and the high food safety and control procedures in place. We’ve got you covered, from palm to plate.
Our experts will listen to your needs, problems, ideas and dedicate their time and knowledge to provide you with a unique solution for your current, and future products.
