Perishable fresh produce is very specialised business and one which we are extremely experienced with.

Fresh fruit and vegetables and their complex documentation and varying duty rulings are a test to the most experienced in the forwarding industry. With our years of experience we are able to offer advise and information to assist both importers and forwarders alike.
On a daily basis we handle the following fruit and vegetable;
Tropical fruit: avocado, pintables, lychees, mangoes, melons

With the introduction of the “PEACH SYSTEM” DEFRA has put into place a system that will enable perishable importers and agents to notify DEFR of impending arrivals into the UK of fruit and vegetables which may be subject to inspection. DEFRA is carrying out a risk based assessment of the information provided via the peach system and will either issue a “Certificate of Conformity” or flag up your cargo for inspection.
RJJ is fully experienced with this procedure and will assist you and notify DEFRA on your behalf.
Food stuff like imports of fish, crayfish, beef and poultry needs special attention when it comes to shipping it from overseas, customs clearance and distribution to your warehouse. We have the procedures, knowledge ad routines in place to monitor the temperature of the reefer container on its journey from loading point to delivery point.
Our customs clearance procedures and daily contact with Port Health and DEFRA will give you a reliable and fast service.
