Business Ideas : Dried FruitBusiness Description: Dried fruits are fresh fruit that are dried in order to be stored more easily.

This method is more effective than freezing fruit, for frozen fruits lose their vitamins. Drying fruit was made only in the sun for periods of 1-2 weeks, but today drying/ dried fruits can be done much faster using professional fruit dryers.
