Leroux Creek Food Corp, an operating fruit and vegetable cannery located in Hotchkiss, CO, was started by Edward Tuft and his family in 1986. Leroux Creek Foods owns and operates approximately 200+ acres of certified organic orchards. In 1988 Leroux Creek Foods started by making dehydrated organic fruits. Eventually, they grew into becoming the first company to produce gourmet flavored apple sauces. Leroux Creek Foods has successfully been manufacturing gourmet applesauce for its' own brand, as well as packing private label for other major grocery store chains across the country since its' beginning. They take pride in all their fruit production; from fresh apples to flavored applesauce, to fruit purees sold as ingredients to other manufacturing companies. In recent years, the company added the production of organic, live active, fermented sauerkrauts and kimchi.
In a beautiful Colorado mountain valley, Leroux Creek Foods grows delicious sweet organic apples. We blend these naturally sweet apples with various organic fruits to create tasty flavored apple sauces for you and your family to enjoy. Our organic apple sauces are naturally fat free, have no added water or sugar, and have no artificial colors or preservatives. Leroux Creek Organic Apple Sauces have everything you need for a healthy body and nothing you don’t! In our mountain valley, cold air cascades off the Rocky Mountains each summer night to blanket the fruit trees with chilled air. In the morning, the summer sun quickly warms the valley. There is often a 60°F difference between night and day. Due to these extreme temperature variances, sugars are concentrated in the fruit and the result is our naturally sweeter apple sauce. Leroux Creek combines these naturally sweet organic apples with a healthy portion of organic fruit purees to create the finest fruit flavored apple sauce around. In addition to our sweet golden apple sauce and delicious cinnamon apple sauce, we are pleased to offer apricot, cherry, berry and mango apple sauces. Family owned, family grown is our motto! Leroux Creek Foods grows organic apples, cherries and blackberries in the North Fork Valley. In addition, Leroux Creek owns its own cannery, where fruit is processed into six flavors of apple sauce and purees. Leroux Creek Foods is committed to bringing you the best organic apple sauce.
