In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, and to respect physical distancing measures, all our fruit specialists will be working remotely but are still available to assist you.We will continue to support the sector’s needs by providing services via email, phone and virtual meetings where possible. We understand these are trying times for most and so we want to assure everyone that we are continuing delivery of information in a timely manner through these alternative channels.

We will continue to provide the sector with the support we’ve always given. Thank you for your understanding.
