Arvi

Arvi

Arvi is a small root vegetable that is grown from a tropical plant; it has quite an intense flavour compared to potatoes and once cooked it has a sweet, subtle, nutty flavour. Shana Arvi may be used immediately from frozen, making them a tidy and convenient way of enjoying the vegetable at its best.

Our vegetables are frozen close to the time of harvest to ensure they retain a higher level of vitamins and nutrients. Absolutely no water is added during the IQF (Individual Quick Freezing) process, providing you with nature’s best.
