[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]Ripe now Ltd was formed as in 2006 by Julian Wright and Lewey Hook, after extensive experience in exotic fruit. The company now has over 40 full time employees, (many of whom have as many years’ experience as the founders!) and up to 50 seasonal employees. Currently we are operating Mango and Kiwi from our Coates site near Peterborough and the majority of our 3rd party packing from our Kirton site near Boston. Ripe Now has coolstorage space of over 400 pallets and multiple conditioning rooms for mango, kiwi and other climacteric fruits.
After inspection at our facilities fruit is conditioned in the ripening chambers and every fruit is non destructively analysed for ripeness and internal defect before being selected and packed for processing orders on a daily basis.
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.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
