Our staff have years of experience of the produce industry and we like to take a proactive stance in any dealings with customers. We pride ourselves in our flexibility and our aim is to exceed expectations whenever possible.

All incoming loads must pass through our weighbridge systemOn arrival each load is given a unique ID number for complete traceability. If required a sample is taken to gauge quality and general size and if later graded we will alert you if size splits are coming out differently to those suggested in initial discussions.

We can grade or pack to the customers specification. If graded we can use Mason boxes or we can grade back into your own as our box fillers are designed to accept boxes of different heights. Boxes off line are labelled with the load ID to ensure traceability is maintained.
