Category Specialisation lies at the very heart of Dole Imports’ business model. We believe a superior service stems from dedicated teams of specialists focused on a single category, providing bespoke solutions to satisfy individual customer needs. See more information below

Berries and Cherries

It is widely recognised that the berry category is growing and provides many challenges in sourcing flavourful, nutritious and fresh produce across the seasons. However, with daily access to the world renowned Belgian and Dutch Berry auctions and with the added support of the Dole global sourcing network, we deliver quality and service 52 weeks of the year. This includes exclusive supply to the UK market of our own and our partner's leading brands. Growth in the Cherry sector is mirroring berries and is another area of specialisation and increasing significance for the team.
