Product Sourcing

Product Sourcing

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.
