So it is vital we work with and employ the best people to handle and distribute our fruit.

We have been based at Cross & Wells for over ten years, having established an excellent working relationship we have tripled our customer base in that time. Cross & Wells is a modern, independent, third party service provider who pack, store and distribute our fruit.

Our facilities

With the latest state of the art citrus packing machines we can offer our customers different packaging options and the latest innovations.

Citrus First has their own office where our technical, quality and stocks team are situated. We employ our own Quality Controllers and product managers who assess every arrival and positive release finished product prior to it being sent to our customers. This level of control gives confidence to our growers and ensures product reaches our customers in peak condition.

By using a third party packing facility our operation is extremely cost efficient and we can maximize packing at source giving us a competitive edge for our customers.

The packhouse is ideally located in Kent with close proximity to the M2 and M20, and just one hour from major ports such as Dover, Folkestone, Tilbury and London Gateway.
