Eatfruit offer fruit that is ethically sourced and as a business operates in a fair manner paying all stakeholders a fair price for the produce purchased and paying all staff the living wage. In addition to this the business operates at near zero waste. In addition, any excess fruit or wonky fruit is donated to local food banks and charities. Also, deliveries can be made Nationally and this is via carbon neutral logistics. That’s why we think Eatfruit is the Best Office Fruit company in the UK.
