A exceptionally broad range of “fresh from the field” products

Adnan Pervez

Commercial Director

One of the things that make us stand out is our broad range of “fresh from the field” products.

We work with common products produced on a large scale, such as Iceberg Lettuce, Cucumbers, Capsicums, Tomatoes and Oranges. In addition, some of our biggest strengths are in specialities such as organic produce and and special tomatoes.

All of our products are “fresh from the field”. As soon as the customer sends us their order, our growers producers start their harvest. This helps to maximise the shelf life of our produce.

In addition, our quality controllers ensure that our products meet customer’s quality specifications. In order to ensure maximum quality, we constantly monitor the quality of the produce we carry. Our inspectors regularly visit both our fields and packaging centres.

We are certified IFS Broker (Higher Level) and GlobalG.A.P. (COC). This guarantees that out products meet European standards for quality, as well as food safety regulations. Finally, we are members of the Amfori BSC initiative, whose goal is to protect employees’ rights and guarantee socially responsible practices throughout the supply chain.
