Citrus, bananas & melons
Technical excellence and outstanding procurement knowledge ensure Pauleys select the right varieties, from the right source at the right time to deliver fruit with a consistently fantastic flavour. A rigorous process is followed to ensure our citrus, bananas & melons are fantastic; this includes the technical measurements of brix and acid, skin thickness, yield, texture and colouration.
When we source globally, we maintain our strict sourcing standards, only dealing with suppliers who are Global Gap accredited. Providing our customers with fruit that is ethically and sustainably sourced as well as technically sound is key.

About our Brazilian melons
The climate in Brazil is ideal for growing fantastic quality melons, we mainly source from this origin during the winter months. The welfare of the workers is vitally important to our supplier and as a result, they have a strong set of values based around integrity, respect, opportunity and responsibility.
All workers are encouraged to progress and develop and plans include the creation of adult education classes. Environmental responsibility is high on their agenda, they recycle waste products and are currently creating a wildlife area to help preserve the presence of wildlife and plants. Bees are introduced to the farms to encourage natural pollination of the plants.
