Compagnie Fruitière UK, a leading supplier and ripener of bananas to the UK marketplace, has taken occupation of a 69,718 sq ft ripening facility on practical completion of the building at DP World London Gateway.
The built-to-suit ripening centre will replace Compagnie Fruitière’s existing operation in Dartford and become part of the company’s growing network of worldwide distribution centres. It is expected to be fully operational by 2021.
“The location of the site at port, combined with the use of technology to deliver efficiency and enhance freshness, will strengthen our reputation for excellent quality and service with our customers.”
- Keith Sadler, Managing Director of Compagnie Fruitiere
