Sunripe

Key supplier Sunripe, based in Nairobi, Kenya, produce world-class organic fruit and vegetables

WHO THEY ARE

Kenyan-based fruit and vegetable company Sunripe started selling fruit and vegetables in local markets 50 years ago. Nowadays, the company’s wide range of organic produce – including avocados, fine beans, Tenderstem broccoli, courgettes and baby leeks, salad onions and spinach, among other ingredients that you’ll find at Spinneys – is totally free from chemicals and preservatives.

WHAT THEY DO

Sunripe have long been committed to quality, sustainability and organic farming. Managing director Hasit Shah explains, “We have just under one million square metres of organic land where our produce grows slowly, at an altitude of 2,000 metres, in temperatures that average at 25 degrees Celsius. We use authorised products to protect our crops and release good insects to keep the bad ones at bay. We’ve also planted sunflowers, marigolds and fennel to provide the perfect environment for bees, ladybirds, lacewings and other beneficial insects to thrive in.”
