Using our GrowerproTM SQL database, we offer full traceability and transparency to both our grower and retail customers.

We can also automatically overwrap, flowpack or polybag top and stone fruit by weight or count, guaranteeing on-time delivery and best quality product.

SOFT FRUIT

Peake Fruit grows and packs strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, which we supply to Supermarket customers via our marketing partner Berry Gardens.

Peake Fruit also packs for other local growers and marketing agents on a 3rd party basis, supplying many of the major high street brands. This allows us to offer a cost effective, professional year round service and cost effective consolidation of packing facilities and reductions in transport costs for growers in East Anglia.

TOP FRUIT

Peake Fruit was one of the first in recent years to supply the market with ‘traditional’ and other unusual and well flavoured English apple varieties. With our state of the art and flexible Aweta grader and small CA stores we also specialise in storing and packing ‘hard to handle’ varieties such as Pink LadyTM and Golden Delicious.
