Mono apricot nectar
All Patrick Font products pay close attention to the seasonality of the fruits and to the rhythms dictated by traditional agriculture: the raw materials are personally selected by the company’s founder and purchased only at the ideal ripening point, with utmost respect for the sustainability, the fruit varieties selected and the terroir where the fruits are grown, without the invasive intervention of human beings. Patrick Font, the owner of the company, establishes strong partnerships with local farmers that go far beyond the mere supply of raw materials. The company collaborates with the farmers, listens to their needs and invests in their activities, “leasing” the trees – the very best, those that boast the most ideal sun exposure or that produce the most fruits – later exclusively used for the production of the juices.
On the one hand, “traditional” fruits such as pears, apples, oranges and many other varieties sourced from local or regional producers. On the other, exotic fruits such as wild mangos from Cameroon, where Patrick Font has investment in modern and cutting-edge equipment, with the aim of contributing to the livelihood and progress of local farming communities.
Once the raw materials have been purchased, they undergo a strict quality control process and, after being washed and sanitized, they are immediately ready for production. The nectars are obtained from very fibrous fruits characterized by a compact and stringy pulp, such as apricots. The fruit is cold pressed and the resulting pulp is subsequently balanced with water and lemon juice in order to obtain a smooth and balanced nectar. A very wide range of products, available in two sizes: 25 cl and 1 L. Traditional flavors ideal to enjoy for breakfast, or exotic and more refined tastes ideal for mixing and creating cocktails such as mango.
Whatever the flavor, whether a nectar or a juice, always products of the highest quality: artisanal, without the addition of preservatives, additives and artificial dyes and that faithfully preserve the authentic taste and organoleptic values of freshly picked fruit.
Patrick Font was born in 1960 to a family of farmers near Lyon, in the fertile hills overlooking the city: an exceptional territory for the cultivation of fruits and vegetables, thanks to the perfect sun exposure. After completing his university studies in Paris, the call of the land was so strong that in 1986 Patrick returned home to take over the family business and, in 1993, he decided to launch himself exclusively in the production of fruit juices and nectars in Saint-Romain-en-Jarez, in central France.
His extensive knowledge of the raw materials and his close ties with the farmers of the Alverna-Rhône-Alpes region, allow him to select the very best fruits and vegetables, only at the peak of their maturity. In the early 2000s, Patrick expanded the company’s horizons exploring new fruits and flavors like wild mango from Cameroon. In 2009 his son Romain and his daughter Marine joined the company, the first on the sales side and the second on the logistics side. A process of international expansion that would allow the Patrick Font company to consolidate its business in France and abroad and to win, in 2018, the award for Best Artisan Company in France.
