For UK importer Exotifruit and Mexican lime producer Inverafrut, the month of May sparks the beginning of a busy season.
As part of a joint venture with our Mexican partners Inverafrut, we can provide a direct supply of high quality Persian limes all year round to retailers, food services, wholesalers, manufactures, juicing outlets and more!
Vertically Integrated Supply Chain
Over the years, we have worked hard to develop a strong and long lasting relationship with our producers by fully integrating the two business functions.
Persian Lime Variety
Persian limes first commercially grown in Mexico three decades ago and over recent years have grown in popularity in both foreign and domestic markets due to the fruits larger size, lack of seeds and slightly less bitter flavour.
“Imports of fresh limes to the European market grew by 50% in volume between 2011 and 2015. Further growth is expected as a result of the increasing popularity of limes in food preparation and drinks.” Source: CBI
The primary focus is on the export of Persian Limes from Central and South and in return for an annual supply of high quality limes Exotifruit supplies access to a sustainable supply chain, logistics, account management and sales.
Global G.A.P certified, Class 1 and Class 2 fruit is available throughout the year in 2kg, 4.5kg, 10kg and 18kg carton sizes.
We offer direct shipping to customers across Europe, USA, Canada, South Korea, Netherlands and UK.
Pricing can be agreed for a fixed time period throughout the season. Working closely with the grower and our commercial team to plan volumes and availability.
