We’re pleased to announce that we have formalised an exclusive agreement to build our own procurement and grower base in Colombia.

Jupiter Colombia is our latest base in South America and will encompass a procurement team focussing on a range of exotics.

Solidifying our portfolio

Our existing offering of avocado, pineapple, mangoes and lime has been strengthened with our partnership. We are now in a position to provide additional top quality produce due to expanded variety availability and competitive transit time for pineapples to Europe.

The agreement aligns with our plans to support marginal farmers and provide them with the necessary tools to deliver a good quality product whilst simultaneously improving their standard of living.

Our Jupiter Group CEO Mark Tweddle says: “With Jupiter Colombia now on board we have shortened our lead time to market on certain products and without doubt have strengthened our global reach. We’ve solidified our portfolio and couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Colombia into the Jupiter Family.”

Mark’s wife and co-owner Yvonne adds “We’ve got off to a great start with the new team and our positive and proactive business nature is something they’ve adopted exceptionally well.”

Colombian fresh produce

Our Jupiter Colombia team will provide all of our provision from in-country, utilising the Colombian climate and optimum growing conditions to provide tasty and nutritious avocados, pineapples, mangoes and limes. Our strengthened portfolio of fruit allows us to capitalise on a growing demand for exotic products globally.

With a large infrastructure already in place focussing on quality products to aid a healthy lifestyle, cutting edge technology will ensure that Jupiter Colombia are at the forefront of South American production.

Our first Colombian avocados will be arriving with our colleagues at Jupiter Europe soon

Jupiter avocados are available year-round from farms in Spain, South Africa, Israel and now Colombia. Our Colombian supply consolidates our existing offering of avocado and strengthens our variety availability.

Alongside the popular Hass variety, we’re able to supply Fuerte, Pinkerton, Reed, Bacon and Ryan to our global client base.

Head of Procurement at Jupiter Group Europe Hugo Vermuelen says: “We’re very excited to see the first Colombian avocados being packed for Jupiter Group. Thanks to our colleagues Nathalia and Scott from Jupiter Colombia we are proud to add this new import line to our assortment.”
