The world is our orchard. Literally.
Cool Fresh has operations on 5 continents. So sit back, relax, and let us take you on a whistle stop tour through some of the great fresh produce destinations that we do business from.
In Europe our activities can only be typified as 'life in the fast lane'. From Rotterdam - one of the busiest ports in the world - we distrubute fruit to more than 650 clients in more than 40 countries. This is done by the great sales and marketing teams of Cool Fresh International, Innoverde and Purnatur.

You don’t get a reputation as a country with some of the best wine in the world without having good grapes. And the grapes from our farms (including our farm in the Orange River) certainly live up to that reputation. Add to that some of the planet’s finest citrus, apples, pears, avocados, figs, and pomegranates and you’ve got one heck of a fruit salad. All South African operations are coordinated around our own logistics hubs, with the capacity for both export as well as imports into local retail.

We love paradoxes, and this is a great example. A country with one of the world’s most breathtaking desert expanses also happens to yield some of the best fresh produce known to man. Our dealings in Namibia range from growing grapes and dates for export markets to growing vegetables for local retailers and sub-Saharan markets, such as Angola and the Seychelles.
Our Namibian grape farm is the culmination of a groundbreaking partnership with small farmers and the Namibian government. (Quite something for a company that’s about as politically-orientated as a toothpick).

Land of the Incas, Peru is heir to ancient cultures and rich traditions. But we’re making history in our own way - by producing and exporting mouth-watering grapes, citrus, pomegranates, mangos, and avocados straight from the playground of the Incas. All via our own state-of-the-art pack house in Ica, the heartland of Peruvian fresh produce.

You could be forgiven for thinking that the best thing to come out of Argentina is the tango. But then you obviously haven’t tasted the grapes, citrus, apples, or pears that we produce for export in tango-land. And we do it with the same passion that seasoned Argentinians reserve only for the dance of seduction.
There are 9 million bicycles in Beijing. But that’s no match for the amount of fresh produce we export from the most populous country in the world each year – everything from garlic and ginger, apples and pears; to chestnuts and honey pomelo’s.
Ukraine is famous for its beautiful women. But in our eyes nothing can beat the voluptuous curves of a ripe orange, the sultry seduction of a juicy mango, or the sweet flirtations of a handful of grapes. Which is why we joined forces with Euro Fresh Fruit to establish a distribution centre to the Ukrainian retail. So that the freshest and most luscious produce gets into the eager hands of all who can appreciate it.

Costa Rica is famous for its pineapples. The same pineapples that we produce and export every day of the year. So if you can’t travel to a Costa Rican beach to sip on a Pina Colada, just try one of our pineapples. And let your imagination take you to the sexy beaches of Playa Dominical, Playa Montezuma or Playa Tamarindo.

Famous for its traditional cuisine, Turkish food is so bright and colourful that you can physically see how great it will taste before the food even reaches your mouth. And if colour is anything to go by, then the rich red cherries that we pack for the European market at Taneks (our specialist agricultural management company at Adana) are an absolute feast for the eyes.
Taneks is also the central hub from which a variety of other fruit and vegetables products are sourced and packed for European retail clients. And if green is your colour then you will be pleased to know that Taneks will soon be supplying pre-packaged convenience salads to selected retailers.
