Who we are
The Royal Gourmet is an Award-Winning Artisan Family Business located in Florida. We specialize in preserving the magnificent-vibrant color and flavor of fruits with all its fragrances and aromas to enchant your palate; we love and enjoy the whole process involved in it.
In the 1980s when Orlando was a teenager, his father taught him the art and techniques of fruit preservation. Orlando and his wife Maria are unconditional lovers of good food and the culinary arts. In 2012 they were looking for a business opportunity. While visiting local gourmet and specialty food stores they realized the lack of preserves made out of tropical fruits. After doing some research they decided to bring to the consumers the Finest Fruit Preserves Handcrafted in Florida, and one of the best food experiences they ever had.
The Royal Gourmet Difference
The Royal Gourmet, Co. fruit preserves are handmade in small batches and cooked to perfection using copper pans, simmered with the freshest natural ingredients. Our method allows us to use the natural sugar from the fruit. As a result, we obtain a final product with fewer calories than mass-produced fruit preserves. The intense flavor that characterizes the Royal Gourmet products is achieved through our signature elaboration and cooking method. The Royal Gourmet, Co. does not use corn syrup, preservatives, additives, artificial colors or flavors in any of the products we create. We work hard to obtain only the highest quality fruit and ingredients. That is why we are involved in each and every part of the process.
Every building needs a good foundation, at The Royal Gourmet, Co. every small-batch starts with local seasonal fresh fruit carefully selected at its peak of ripeness from local farms. All our passion, devotion and limitless imagination are poured into every batch we create. Every batch is unique as a child; that is the beauty of it!
