Fruit Vision was founded in 2014 and is predominantly an apple and pear supplier working with growers both in the UK but also across the world.
We pride ourselves on our industry experience, an established network of growers all over the globe and providing top quality produce at competitive prices.
Based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, we focus on the fast moving fruit wholesale market which is a market like no other.
Everyday involves trading, gathering product information, taking risks and liaising with hard working, passionate and extremely knowledgeable people who know the fresh produce market inside out. We are a rapidly growing company and have exciting expansion plans ahead including to build on our work with foodservice and retail clients so more can benefit from our expertise, market knowledge and low overheads.
Behind Fruit Vision is managing director Thomas Lowes who comes from a family with fruit at its core.
Thomas said: "I started packing apples for my father’s company and was told very early on that I needed to prove my worth and work my way up. I have been involved in every aspect of the process at some point from packing and quality control to warehouse and general admin before I moved on to trading working with retail foodservice and ultimately wholesale markets which is what I specialise in now.
"From as early as I can remember I wanted to work in the fresh produce industry. I saw my father travelling to fantastic places and changing the lives of hard working growers by improving key elements of their work such as the logistics chain.
“I have dedicated my working life to this industry and was delighted to set up my own business, Fruit Vision, in 2014.
"Today I share the same philosophies to those that were instilled in me as I grew up particularly with regard to looking after our growers. Without their fruit, people can’t eat it and without the consumers being happy with the fruit there is no reason for growers to grow it. Managing this dynamic is essential to the success of Fruit Vision."
