An acquisition last year saw our global network expand to incorporate our European hub in the Netherlands.

Group CEO and Joint MD Mark says:

“Our global production across all of our core range is growing rapidly which means we are in the position to expand our workforce. We want the very best people in the industry here at Jupiter and can safely say that by meeting set targets, you will be very well rewarded for being a part of our group. There is a real chance to be invested in as a team player and as part of a global company. If you think you have what it takes to join us, get in touch via our careers page on the website”.

With our further expansion into Europe our core range grew to also include pineapple, melon, avocado and lime. Based from here, our exotics procurement team manage the development of some of our fundamental product lines.

The positioning of our Ridderkerk premises provides the perfect gateway to mainland Europe and is accustomed to flexible packing solutions to suit differentiating consumer bases and retailers.

Fantastic new re-branding

You may have spotted on our social media that the Ridderkerk office has recently been re-branded as part of the Jupiter Group, to showcase our global one team approach.

Joint MD Yvonne says:

“By further expanding the group last year, we incorporated new cultures and added to our already diverse workforce. At Jupiter we aim to provide the optimum space for teams to develop their skills organically and work as one team globally.”

Our European hub is unique in the fact that it has the ability to load mixed trucks of multiple products throughout Europe on a daily basis whilst also shortening our lead time to market.

As our group has expanded, so has our repertoire of accolades, you may have seen that we have been ranked 17th in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 and recently won a Family Business award for our global CSR initiatives.
