Where does your Funkin fruit come from?
As you’ve probably already guessed, fruit is at the heart of our world. In our quest to find the freshest, ripest, juiciest and tastiest ingredients for our pre-batched mixers, purees and syrups we’ve explored every corner of the globe throughout the years. The result? Persian limes from Mexico, passion fruit from Ecuador, mangoes from India and more – supplied by producers of all types and sizes.
