Every year around 300,000 tonnes of fruit and vegetables are sourced by our specialist entities across Europe,
through CFUK, Dole Food Espana, Dole Portugual, Dole France and Exofarm. All are part of the CF Group.
Due to the knowledge and expertise of our procurement sourcing teams, our family of growers can select fruit
of the highest quality, from the best origins throughout the year according to seasonality and needs of the
markets. This guarantees that our customers will always receive the best possible fruit.
All suppliers of fresh produce to CFUK must ensure that their products are wholesome and have met our customers'
needs by complying with all relevant food safety requirements and certifications. To this end suppliers must agree
with our 'Technical Terms & Conditions' which identifies their responsibilities to ensure that goods comply with
all relevant legislation for the UK market.
All of CFUK suppliers must be accredited to GLOBALGAP standards as a minimum. The GLOBALGAP standard is primarily
designed to reassure consumers about how food is produced on the farm by minimising detrimental environmental impacts
of farming operations, reducing the use of chemical inputs and ensuring a responsible approach to worker health and
safety as well as animal welfare.
We welcome any new growers or suppliers that wish to serve the UK Market or one of our European partners. If you
are interested, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.
