From the start, FRUVEGO's goal has been to serve the most demanding markets worldwide. We strive to establish our quality and product in markets which value quality and consistency.
FRUVEGO serves customers in 7 countries, and is currently working in expanding it's customers portfolio.
Consistency on deliveries is key for every customer we serve, for this reason FRUVEGO works with the most reliable logistic providers worldwide.
We ship our Okra by Ocean only to North America and by air to Europe, UK, and USA.
Main airfreight providers K+N, DHL, Amerijet, and UPS.
Main ocean transport providers such as Crowley, Seaboard, and Dole, which are the most realiable shipping lines from Honduras to North America.
Our process starts by washing the Okra and cleansing the fruit with water and organic products which enhance shelf life. The product goes through two selection stages and Okra is packed by size, color, shape, and variety.
The fruit is immediately cooled reaching an optimum temperature of 45F or 7.2C.
For the North American market, fruit is packed in a half bushel 7kg box.
For the European Market Indian type Okra is packed in a 4kg box.
For the European Market Clemson type Okra is packed in a 5kg box.
As with all perishable products, reducing the maturity or respiration rate of the fruit is key for enhancing shelflife, this is obtained by reducing temperature efficiently and rapidly. For this reason FRUVEGO has invested on it's own cooling facilities, which have capacity for processing and cooling 50 pallets per day.
FRUVEGO is benefited from the fact, that all the production areas within our farms are less than 1km / .62mi away from our packing facility, meaning that our fruit is cooled at a quicker and more efficient rate.
