UK Importer & Mexican Lime Producer to Launch Organic Fair-Trade Alternative
For UK importer Exotifruit and Mexican lime producer Inverafrut, the month of May sparks the beginning of a busy year ahead. Working side by side the team is preparing for yet another successful season delivering premium quality fruit, to customers across the UK and Europe.
This year, as well as focusing their attention on consistent quality and value-added packaging, Inverafrut and Exotifruit plan to launch new products to the market, including an organic, Fair-Trade alternative.
“Among our collective expansion plans is the sowing of organic, Fair-Trade limes which are planned to begin this year.
To date, the alliance between Inverafrut and Exotifruit have generated multiple benefits to the Mexican countryside and the social community through the Inverafrut Foundation. The Fair-Trade alternative only stands to increase that positive impact.” Adriana Melchor, Inverafrut.
Mexican Lime Producer
Located in the Veracruz region of Mexico, Inverafrut already produces over 35 containers per week in their new packing house in Chavarrillo which is also supported by their original production facilities in Martinez de la Torre.
Investment in state of the art technology means that each lime is subject to both automated and manual quality checks, ensuring that every customer receives the freshest, high-quality fruit upon arrival.
“We are confident that our continued investment in technology, processes and the development of new products provides our customers with a fresh, new alternative.” Adriana Melchor, Inverafrut.
The strategic collaboration and integration of the two teams also provide customers with a direct sales link and access to fresh and delicious limes, all year round.
“In addition to quality, sustainable sourcing is high on our agenda. Social impact is a value that we share with Inverafrut, and as a group, it is our ongoing commitment to achieve sustainable volumes and fair prices for the Veracruz community.” Andrew Sperling, Allfresch Group.
Exotifruit is looking to discuss new opportunities, product and brand development with new clients in the UK, Europe and around the world. To find out more or to discuss your requirements please get in touch.
