SAFE. LOCAL. DELICIOUS.

Our NEW seasonal box of fruit and veg comes from one of Kenya’s top exporters of fruit and vegetables. This means it means EU standards for quality, and safety. No unnecessary pesticides or chemicals have been sprayed on these products, except within permitted guidelines issued by the European Union. We’ve worked really hard with our producer to ensure that we cut down on as much packaging as possible, so aside from soft fruit (which would otherwise be irreparably damaged) there is no plastic packaging. You’ll simply receive your veggies, lovingly packed, in a sturdy cardboard box which we hope to be able to use up to 10 times. Please give it a brush out and keep it dry so that when we next deliver to you, we can collect the box.

What you can expect in your box:

You’ll be getting a mixed box of seasonal vegetables and some soft fruit depending on availability. The below list highlights some of the veggies you can expect to find in your box.

The veggies that are going into the Freshly boxes are delivered from the farm, then taken to their respective cares (high care/low care) at KHE to be prepared to pack. The same exact process stands for export veggies. KHE has have strict hygiene rules in place for employees who are in these units. KHE is audited regularly to ensure they abide by all standards (BRC, Global GAP, Sedex, ETI). The only difference would be for export, as the packaging must be in MAP bags to extend shelf life.

About KHE

These vegetables are grown by Kenyans for Kenyans. The producer we have partnered with – Kenya Horticultural Exporters – is a family business that has been operating for over 50 years. The business is committed to the HACCP system (a tool to assess hazards and establish control systems that focus on prevention rather than relying mainly on end-product testing) and the BRC Code of practice (focused on food safety) to ensure that the requirements for exporting safe, and quality produce are met and exceeded at all times.

KHE grows and packs their own fruit and vegetables, which amount to more than 20 different crops – across 3 different owned sites in Kenya. They have our own nursery where they propagate over 4 million plants a month. KHE directly manages 3 major farms, owns 3 packhouses with state of the art cold chain systems, and has their our own packaging facility with MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging).

There’s lots more info about KHE available here on their website.
