Let's meet some of our customers! - Fairfield Orchards

Let’s meet some of our customers!

While taking a break in Europe in September, our company directors managed to squeeze in a visit to one of their customers.
Hugo Mes from Mesfruits in Cavaillon, France took time out during harvest to show Aaron around a young block of trees as seasonal fruit pickers from Poland harvest Granny Smith apples. These seasonal pickers have similar work contracts as our own Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme workers from the Pacific Islands.
Networking and sharing knowledge of our industry, and understanding how our customers market our product, is both insightful and rewarding to see.
Mesfruits is a grower and Local market supplier to the EU (France, Germany, etc). They are also one of our customers, taking our fruit, regrading and packaging it and sending it to supermarkets across the Continent.
If you would like to help our apples get started on their long journey across the world, you might like to join the team at Fairfield Orchards. Take a look at the Work Available page for more details.
