We have expanded since then to cover a wide range of citrus and stone fruit, sourced from both the UK and overseas for a wide range of customers.

We recognise that relationships with both growers and customers are key to our success. To this end, we have built partnerships around the world, with a geographical spread of growers giving us supply options for 12 months of the year on most products. Utilising our dedicated team of both commercial and technical specialists, we ensure that both customers and growers are able to develop and grow with us, by providing all parties with the information and services they need to facilitate their business. 

Based in the very heart of a rapidly expanding UK cherry growing industry and with close relationships with all key stonefruit stakeholders, we are ideally place to fulfil our role as leading drivers and innovators, providing all our partners with new and exciting developments every season and our end user customers with great products they want to buy again and again. Since 1987 we have been sourcing and marketing both conventional and organic citrus from our worldwide grower base to our customers in the UK. 

We recognise that relationships with both growers and customers are key to our success.
