Fairtrade

UNIVEG SourcingGreenyard are the country’s leading Fairtrade fruit supplier (excluding Bananas) and have a proven track record of bringing ‘world firsts’ to the category.

Leading success stories include the supply of Fairtrade Grapes from India and Fairtrade Lychee from South Africa. These and other projects have flourished as a result of the close co-operation between the Greenyard Fresh group, the Fairtrade Foundation, based in London, and based in Bonn, Germany, FLO (Fairtrade International) formerly known as the Fairtrade Labelling Organisation.

Greenyard embraces corporate and social responsibilities as key strategic and ethical considerations. These factors are especially important at a time where consumers place ever increasing attention to the food they buy, how it’s produced, and the processes involved in bringing it to the supermarket shelves.

An exciting future lies ahead for Fairtrade products; there is great potential for European expansion of the Mark, with various fruit and vegetable categories already highlighted.

Greenyard currently offers Fairtrade products from the following categories: Citrus, Grape, Melons, Apples, Pears, and selected Tropical lines.
