The story of Freezedry OÜ – about love for healthy food
Freezedry OÜ was born out of a love for healthy food, just as all great things can start with chance and need. In 2011, the founder of Freezedry OÜ, Mermi, was looking for freeze-dried strawberries from a retail network that would not have added sugar to add them to both muesli and breakfast cereals. Searches failed. So all that was left was to delve into the secrets of freeze-drying and learn to make perfectly freeze-dried strawberries yourself, which would have the original sweet taste and smell of Estonian strawberries. Today, we are the first and only factory in Estonia using freeze-drying technology.
