About

Fresh Fruit Vinegars bring the true taste of fruit to your plate. Great for cocktails and meals giving them that extra fruit punch!

The Idea was started when I was on a Culinary internship in Brazil.  There were so many fruits in all the dishes over there.  Not just for desert but for dinners and entree's.  

Now that I've created the vinegars and so many people love them we are having production issues hard to keep up with the production.  We have found some machines in China which are cheeper even with shipping but we would like to get an american made product.  We found the manufacturer of a simple 4 head filler in Pennsylvania and just need funds to get that set up here and start bottling on it.

If you're a foodie here's a great product to get you home cooking up to the top chef status.  

Preserving fruit in vinegar is a tradition that dates back to the 18th century, modern fresh fruit vinegars are a product category that until now has been unavailable in the United States. Today, We are putting a modern twist on the classic with Mangé’s exquisite line of fresh fruit vinegars that are all natural, gluten-free, Kosher, and made without preservatives or synthetic dyes.

MMM great cherries pressed and preserved in there!! MMM great cherries pressed and preserved in there!! Unlike other infused or syrup-based fruit vinegars, Mangé’s fresh fruit vinegars are made using fruit that has been picked at its peak, puréed and preserved in vinegar. The process allows the vinegar to capture the essence of each fruit’s natural flavor, creating a brilliant burst of fruitful flavor that can be added to any appetizer, entrée, dessert or cocktail.

Our new holiday pack for those foodies out their!! Our new holiday pack for those foodies out their!! Simple to use and highly versatile, fresh fruit vinegars are light enough to drink from a spoon, yet strong enough to marinate a ceviche. From home cooks to professional chefs, Mangé’s full line of fresh fruit vinegars offer eleven flavors that are sure to please every palate, including: Blackberry, Blood Orange, Cherry, Fig, Green Apple, Mango, Passion Fruit, Pear, Raspberry, Red Pepper and White Peach.

Our taster set sure to get your taste buds going!! Our taster set sure to get your taste buds going!!

We'd really appreciate if you could help us reach our goal so that we can get Fresh Fruit vinegars into everyones hands.  Please like us and add us to your social media to get the word out.

Thank You

Risks and challenges

With any small businesses, there are risks involved in the start up. However, we are ready to meet these challenges head on.

Challenge:
We are presently making small batches of our product in a small commercial kitchen. We mash, we peel, and we pit everything that is needed to go into these vinegars. With our line beginning to take off bottling the smaller bottles is becoming nearly impossible.

Plan:
We have found a local Pennsylvania line manufacturer who will make our filling machine for a discount rate of $15,000. This machine will allow us to keep up with the demand for our vinegars in 2014. We already have a facility and place to store all our products. This machine will help make it possible to bring our vinegars to everyone.

I've been able to create this product from the ground up. Doing everything from digital artwork for the labels, packaging, recipes and marketing. With friends and family helping me bottle until now we are ready to move to automation. With your help we can get this next phase going. We have some money first year of sale but need to get the rest to get the equipment to really turn out these vinegars.
