Patience Fruit & Co.

We have a deep respect for nature, and we tend to her needs as much as we do our cranberries. Since the beginning, we have practiced organic farming, using no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Certain things cannot be rushed if you want to do them right. That is why we personally tend to our berries at every step of the way, from seed to shrub to dried fruit. By showering our cranberry fields with care and attention, we ensure that they will live on practically forever. We use a unique drying process that occurs slowly over a long period of time. Our berries are fully grown, and then gently dried to the perfect point, just the amount for them to retain as much of their flavor and nutrition as possible.

 

 

Certified Products:

Our Mission

We're always trying to find new ways to use cranberries -- innovative products that are part of a healthy diet. Of course, we're always thinking about the environment too, constantly looking for new ways to reduce our ecological footprint, such as using rainwater collected on the farm to flood the bogs, or contributing to the expansion of the organic movement. It's our way of making sure we'll all be able to enjoy nature's bounty for a long time to come.

Our Story

In the year 2000, the Le Moine family, as well as 3 other families chose to invest in organic cranberry farming in Villeroy, starting the Fruit d’Or Company. Even though at the time organic farming was not very common, and even almost non-existent, their desire for healthy, eco-friendly farming let them very quickly carve out a prime spot for themselves in the food industry.

Still, wanting more than anything to share their passion for organic cranberry farming with the world, in 2015, they decided to launch the Patience Fruit & Co. brand, an inspirational retail brand name that offers bigger, softer and juicier berries.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
