Fruit of the month, fruit in the spotlight ...

For our health, and that of our planet, we put a fruit or seasonal vegetable in the spotlight every month. The lucky winner is featured in several delicious recipes. Discover them here!

LET'S GO CRAZY FOR THE BELIGUM STRAWBERRY 
 
Have you ever tried strawberries in sandwiches? In June, you will see the Caroline sandwich in our cold counters. Caroline is the name of a real customer who won an EXKi contest in Paris. Her winning recipe: organic baguette, Belgian strawberries, fresh goat’s cheese and rocket. You will discover seasonal strawberries in our vegetable-based desserts too (chia seeds, strawberries, red peppers and basil verrine).
 

The recipes containing our fruits and vegetables of the month are seasonal. They change...every month (it's true!) - which allows us to work with the best seasonal products. Good for quality. Good for the planet.
