Gherkins

Crop Alliance specialises in the fermentation of gherkins. Our unique location at just 100 metres from the sea gives us an advantage over our competitors. The taste and composition of the preservative can be adjusted to suit your requirements. The ways in which our gherkins can be supplied include: 

  • Cubes: 3x3x3, 6x6x6, 9x9x9, 12x12x12 mm.
  • Slices: straight cut & crinkle cut
  • Uncut or as part of vegetable mix
  • Alternatives or variations on the above options can always be discussed

We offer a range of packaging options. We generally supply industrial users with 180 kg drums. If you would like smaller packaging, then buckets (max. 20 litres) or polybags (max. 10 kg) are also among the options available. For the convenience industry we also offer smaller polybags. This type of packaging contains up to 1.5 kg of product and can be supplied with a preservative, without additional heat treatment, packaged in a box (6 x 1.5 kg). 

Fermented gherkins have a highly distinctive taste due to the absence of natural sugars and the presence of lactic acid. Our mastery of this process has yielded us a loyal customer base that is continuing to expand. 
Our customers are mainly in the convenience, canning and sauce industries both at home and abroad.
