Our products speak for themselves.
(But that is what everybody says).
However, at Cool Fresh International we like the sound of our own voice, so here we go…
The world is our orchard.
What we mean is that we don’t recognise boundaries. Towns, cities, countries, continents – all created by restrictive lines that most companies and people live by. Not because they’re real or even logical, but because we are told that it is the way it should be. And so you get the apple farmer from Washington selling apples from Washington, and the orange farmer from Spain selling oranges from Spain.
But not us. We believe that you get the best produce by sourcing it from where it grows best. That’s why we hand-pick our fresh produce from all over the world – crisp cherries from Turkey, succulent citrus from South Africa, rich melons from Costa Rica.
Cool Fresh International is the global virtual fresh produce gateway, coordinating direct shipments of fresh produce from all over the world to any destination you can think of (and those you’ve never even heard of). If there’s a pie that we don’t have our finger in, you can be sure we’ll find it
All our products are sourced from GlobalGap certified farms and packhouses, often with integrated CSR-systems. Our growers are hand-picked by our team, as we believe that the fresh produce business can only be optimally successful if all parties work together as one team.

You can’t choose better than Cool Fresh International’s grapes. Our fruit-of-the-vine is produced, picked and packed all over the world with the greatest attention to detail.

Whether it is in South Africa or Namibia, Turkey or Peru, Argentinia or Chile, Mexico or Egypt - skilled workers with years of experience carefully ensure that only the best grapes are selected for export to our clients.
International distribution is handled with expert care and attention by professional partners, ensuring that your order arrives in just-picked condition: plump and perfect.

Beta-carotene, Vitamin B6, potassium and magnesium – citrus fruits provide your daily dose of good health!

Stone fruit' is the general term used for some fruit of the Prunus species, which includes cherries, peaches, nectarines, plums and apricots.
Within each species there are a number of varieties, catering for all different tastes, palates and culinary purposes.
Nothing beats a fresh nectarine on a hot summer day.
A sweet apricot enhances the flavours of matured cheese.
A juicy peach provides a stunning ingredient for a yoghurt smoothie.
And last but not least, flambéed cherries and ice cream can be found on the menu’s of many international restaurants.
Because of the sensitive nature of stone fruit, extraordinary care must be taken in all aspects of the supply chain.
