Women in fresh
On the grapevine
elcome to the seventh edition of our
group magazine; Global Roots. This
is another jam packed digital magazine
with an array of exciting developments
and news from around our global
It seems strange to think the last
quarterly edition of our magazine was
also during the COVID-19 pandemic
which has, no doubt, been a challenge
for us all both personally and
professionally. I am pleased to see light
at the end of the tunnel around the
world, as restrictions ease and we all
begin our individual and amended
versions of ‘normal’.
We were however all granted a pause
button within the pandemic; in this time
we here at Jupiter have been quietly working away behind the scenes on the
technology within our business to ensure our systems are aligned with our growth,
so they forge the foundations for our further development. I am sure by the autumn
edition of Global Roots, I will have more to share with you on that front.
Whilst we don’t cover this inside the magazine, you may also have seen our move
to sell Saphir BV to LCL Logistics BV in Holland. This forms part of our ongoing
business plan to concentrate our efforts on being a grower. This plan also sees us
closing our UK pack house allowing our ‘direct from farm’ approach to streamline
our supply chain.
In this edition you’ll also find updates on our Greek Grapes, our developments in
our South African pack house and our first experiences of digital industry events
alongside much more.
Enjoy the read. Stay safe and well and I will look forward to next time.
