We focus on importing tropical fruit from various countries. Mango, kiwi, pomegranate seeds, figs, etc.
Tell us what you want and we will get it for you!
To make sure the fruit tastes right it should be ripened correctly. Our team has years of experience in fruit conditioning and selection and with our high technology packing lines we can assure you, you get the best quality fruit possible.
Looking for a place to keep your product in a temperature controlled environment? We can offer storage at temperatures ranging from 0°C to 22°C and round the clock quality control. Your product will be in good hands!
Today the company has over 110 full time employees, (many of them have been there from the very beginning!) and up to 70 seasonal employees. The company operates from three sites - Coates (near Peterborough), Kirton and Boston. Across these three sites we have cool storage space of over 1,000 pallets and ripening space for over 1,800 pallets.
The biggest advantage of Ripe Now is the team. Every department of the company contains people with years of experience and a real 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 suppliers alike. For the fruits we import directly, we have worked for years, with growers around the world - to create a seamless supply calendar of, for example smooth fleshed mango arrivals, 52 weeks of the year!

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, and integrated itself in the supply chain.
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 periods of the year, it improves the local community too. Around 4,200 people in Ivory Coast are involved in APEXKO’s exporting activity.
In 2016 Ripe Now 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 and will be ready to harvest in 2021!
