Experts at our subsidiaries as well as in procurement and sales spend each day improving on the economies of scale achievable by the distribution network with our alliance partners. In such a way we are able to offer our business partners direct and cost-effective solutions.
Freshness that appeals
Our 8 subsidiaries act as local distribution and service centres for our customers. As a full service provider, we offer our business partners the opportunity to ripen, store, package, label and pick their own goods. They can then be delivered at precisely the right time by our vehicles or transport partners.
Ripening rooms and subsidiaries
Our state-of-the-art ripening rooms with a capacity of 150,000 boxes (of 18 kg each) per week makes us one of the largest banana ripening facilities in Germany.
The subsidiaries are managed as profit centres, traditionally operating as wholesale cash-and-carry outlets. We thereby fulfil all the demands of our specialist customers while remaining close to the market. This complements the food retailing sector perfectly, thus meeting the demands in terms of both quality and quantity.
The strategic alliance formed in 2011 between Fyffes, Gemüsering and vanWylick was expanded in 2015 by an additional international partner, Capespan, and is a unique constellation in the fruit sector.
