Who we are

Today, Fyffes is the largest importer of bananas in Europe and the no. 1 importer of offshore melons in North America.

Over 8700 permanent employees and 6000 seasonal workers work at Fyffes around the world.

Partnerships & Innovation

We have traded for over 130 years and believe that to get the best fruit and to do it sustainably we need to develop strong, long term partnerships with our growers and their communities. Partnering with certain grower groups in Central and South America for over 50 years has taught us a lot about corporate citizenship and has helped us engage in community development programmes. Through these partnerships, we’ve developed industry leading techniques that improve efficiency, deliver consistent quality and support sustainability.

Our Blue Label

Did you know Fyffes was the first company in the world to brand its fruit back in 1929?

The Fyffes Blue Label assures each piece of fruit has been grown, harvested, and packed with care using sustainable methods before it arrives to your local store.

For over 90 years

Our Blue Label has been recognized as a symbol for quality, freshness and great tasting produce. Growing the best fruit requires dedication and attention to detail. The difference in quality and consistency can be impacted by many factors, like how far apart we plant the small banana plants (6 feet is ideal), or how many ‘hands’ of bananas are on each stalk (8 is the target), or the exact temperature set in the shipping containers that bring the fruit to its final destination. (13.5 degrees).

We use proven systems that help us to question, control and improve the way we do everything: from first planting, to loading and shipping the fruit around the world, to preparing the ideal conditions for the fruit to finally leave our warehouses and go to your local store. Many processes, developed by us, are now standard in the industry.
