We have an extensive supplier network that allows us to obtain the highest quality produce while enabling us to compete tactically on price. We source the best quality fruits from reputable growers and leading distributors globally. To name a few, we source from Egypt and South Africa among several others. Since our supply chain is solidified by a multitude of global backers, we are able to provide fruit year-round getting rid of ‘off-season’ nuisances. We strive to fortify long-term and endurable relationships with all our distributors and growers to ensure collective success and positive returns.
In ensuring the highest quality, BFF has strict protocols and product specifications that have set the high standards that we are known for. Our team conducts routine quality inspections every so often on various consignments before loading. In doing so, we observe a set of quality indicators of the physical fruit like good colour, size, sugar levels as well as good pressure of the fruit enabling a satisfying crunch. In addition, we confirm the fruit harvest date, discern the orchard conditions and observe the product handling in packing rooms and along assembly lines to ensure we receive the finest fruit. Consequently, our suppliers know that our standards are high and thus ensure to send us their best. Our focus on supplier relations has also built mutually interdependent relationships allowing us to get the best pick of the fruit before our competitors. In addition, our product handling is entirely mechanized from country of origin to final destination via automated packing lines as well forklifts and pallet jacks. Thus, there is minimal human handling which avoids mishaps and keeps the fruit at its best quality.
Cold Chain Management & Distribution
Inevitably, maintaining a high cold-chain is vital and remains our utmost priority. Large investments have been made by establishing state of the art warehousing and cold-store capacity within our all key markets. We have a devoted team that ensures all deliveries are carried out professionally in our fleet of refrigerated vehicles. Furthermore, each of our transit trucks are equipped with gensets that ensure optimum temperature of the fruit at all times. As such, all our products are transported, stored and distributed at target temperatures.
Long term Commitment to our Clients & Partners
We are advocates of long-term relationships with our growers and suppliers. We pride ourselves on supplier relations that date back from 1995 and hope to continue to bridge new associations and links. In addition, building strong relations with our clients is paramount to us as we try and fulfil their product needs to the best of our ability. We wish to build exclusive links with our clients offering them high quality fruit and building mutually beneficial affiliations.
