International fruit contract for Gist

Fruit producer Spring Valley has awarded the contract to handle traffic between South Africa and the UK to Gist.

Prepared fruit from South Africa will go directly into Gist’s chilled transport and warehouse network for delivery into retail stores.

The process is temperature-controlled throughout from the processing operation to the airport, in the air and onboard vehicles from the airport and to stores.


Peter Black, managing director of Spring Valley, said: “Gist always places top priority on the integrity of our supply chain and the strict temperature controls they have in place means our customers can enjoy the benefits of fresher fruit delivered at its best.”
