MOTT'S: Nurturing Goodness for Your Family Since 1842

Yes, an  apple a day does keep the doctor away! The apple, that shiny, beautiful red fruit which teased its way into Eve's heart and lured Snow White into an enchanting sleep, is packed with all sorts of nutritional benefits. Not only does it boost your immune system, it also cleanses your liver, prevents cataracts, controls weight, and contributes to a healthy heart.(1) It's no wonder then that the folks over at Mott's love working with this luscious fruit!
It all started with S.R. Mott, who has been growing apples in New York since 1842. Using techniques he learned from his grandfather, Mott perfected advanced pasteurization and filtration techniques at his mill, resulting in the popularity of his products.

Every eight-ounce serving provides you with two servings of fruit. Mott's is rooted in the fine tradition of making the most of the goodness of the lovely apple since 1842. Since then, it has been nurturing goodness among Filipino families.
