Some of the mango trees are said to produce fruits and flowers even after 300 years of its life. Because of this feature only, mango trees are said to be evergreen with long life and long fertility.

At first, kiwis were referred to as ‘Yang Tao’ or ‘Chinese Gooseberry,’ but the name was ultimately changed to kiwifruit so that everyone would know where the fruit came from.

WE DELIVER RESULTS

665 containers imported from 14 countries, 12775 pallets of high quality product dispatched

Kiwifruits can be used as natural meat tenderizers owing to the presence of an enzyme that can break down protein.

OUR HISTORY:

Ripe now Ltd was formed as in 2006 by Julian Wright and Lewey Hook- commercial and technical minds with an extensive experience within the fresh produce industry. They started little, the first pallets ever packed at Ripe Now Ltd were by the hands of Julian, Lewey and Neil Gott operations director.

Today the company has over 40 full time employees, (many of them have been there from the very beginning!) and up to 50 seasonal employees. Currently the company has two sites- Coates site near Peterborough where all the mango and kiwi magic is happening and Kirton site near Boston which is more focused on top quality 3rd party packing. Ripe Now has cool storage space of over 400 pallets and multiple conditioning rooms for mango, kiwi and other climacteric fruits.

The biggest advantage of Ripe Now is the team. Every department of a company contains people with years of experience and passion for their job. Ripe Now is not just a company, it’s a family.

We pride ourselves in the close relationships we have with customers and directly with growers around the world, this has taken time to have created a seamless supply calendar of smooth fleshed mango arrivals 52 weeks of the year.

MAKING

A CHANGE

When eating a fruit think of a person who planted the tree

Our aim is to get the best quality products possible all year around. To do that Ripe Now has looked further into the supply chain.

Making a change in the Ivory Coast:

Ripe Now is working very closely with APEXKO SARL - an exporter in Ivory Coast. It doesn’t only insure a fixed supply of mango fruit during one of the most difficult period of a year, it improves the society too. Around 4200 people in Ivory Coast are involved in APEXKO’s activity.

Ripe Now as a grower:

This year Ripe Now has planted its first mango trees in Peru. This way we can monitor and improve the fruit quality from the very beginning. The land features a high technology irrigation system will be ready to produce in 2019!
