OUR FRESH FROM HARVEST APPROACH
We work closely with growers to achieve the highest standards in quality, ethical trade and environmental care. We adhere to a number of international standards including Fairtrade, Organic, and LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming).
Our fruit is harvested at its optimal maturity to ensure the best possible taste. It is then delivered to our factories the same day, where it is hand selected for quality and ripeness before being authorised to enter our High Care Production facility.
Our experienced and highly trained fruit experts work with the greatest level of diligence and skill to cut and prepare freshly harvested fruit at our certified High Care Production facilities in Ghana, Egypt, South Africa, Brazil and the United Kingdom.
The finished product is delivered over night in order to reach our customers the very next day. Fruit is transported at a constant temperature between 0 and 5 degrees celsius ensuring it arrives tasting truly fresh from harvest.
MAKING AN IMPACT
We aim to produce the finished product in the countries where the fruit grows. In this way we are closer to our farmers and return more value to communities through job creation, skills development and technology transfer.
We have a policy of protecting the environment, preserving areas of biodiversity and reducing our emissions. In Ghana we compost all our fruit waste so we can return nutrient rich soil back to our farms.
The Blue Skies Foundation funds projects for communities involved in the supply of fresh fruit to Blue Skies in Africa. To date we have completed over 60 projects impacting over 150,000 people, including the construction of schools and clinics.
