We are always on a quest to see how “low we can go” with controlled water activity fillings.

We make a wide variety of fillings, but what truly sets us apart is our advanced low-water activity (aw) capabilities. We continually push the boundary of what’s possible to create shelf-stable breakfast and snack applications that satisfy the need for convenience and on-the-go consumption. 

BRF can make fillings without artificial colors, flavors or preservative that deliver fresh, real flavors, even for freeze-thaw and shelf-stable applications. Fillings can be made with real fruit or vegetables—perfect for bars, cereals and other snacks in a wide array of healthy categories. Our savory fillings include caramels, cheeses, fudges and white crèmes that turn your health snack into an indulgent treat. Yum. 

All of our fillings are custom formulated, crafted uniquely for each customer's brands.
