Picking our crops at the right time is really important in order for us to maximise freshness and flavour. That’s why we use the latest technology to check that we are picking premium produce every time.
Our pickers are expertly trained in how to handle and select the very best fruits. Each fruit is hand-picked and popped straight into a punnet with the lightest touch before being sent to the packhouse. The fruit is quickly transferred to one of our packhouses whereupon it is rapidly chilled to around 4⁰C to remove ‘field heat’. This maintains freshness so our customers receive our fruit in the best possible condition.
