I’ve always wondered why every flavour of GoGo squeeZ includes apple. Élie – 45

Apples are an integral part of Materne’s history. In 1923, the company purchased a factory in Picardie, France—a region famous for its apples.

We know that when apple is cooked and puréed, it has the perfect texture for combining with many other kinds of fruit. That is why we can constantly develop delicious new recipes to add to our product offering. In the words of the wise old saying, it seems that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away!”

Are the GoGo squeeZ recipes and flavours the same all around the world? Chloé – 24

Packaging

Could you tell me more about the GoGo squeeZ pouch? Stéphane – 21

The snack pouch format was developed in 1998 for Pom’Potes—GoGo squeeZ’s big sister in France—and it revolutionized how people eat fruit.

The pouch eliminated peeling and spoon-feeding and even solved the problem of fruit stains. Now you can simply squeeZ the pouch to enjoy fresh fruit. The Heli’Cap allows children to reseal the pouch if they want to save some for later. The smooth rounded shape of the packaging also makes GoGo squeeZ safe for children.

In addition to preserving the natural qualities of the fruit, the GoGo squeeZ pouch is a truly innovative packaging solution. Colourful, easy to handle and fun, the pouch is an instant hit with children. After they have been used, pouches are given a second life through our partnership with TerraCycle.
