About PrepWorld

Established in 2012, PrepWorld is an innovative and fast growing prepared fruit company supplying the UK and Spanish market with high quality fresh cut packs. The business was initially established to market a range of soft fruit focused lines, showcasing BerryWorld’s unique berry varieties. It has quickly established itself as a supplier, covering the full range of all fruit types.

As a business we are focused on product quality, technical standards and innovation. In addition to our leadership in berries, we have a strength in UK based pomegranate and coconut production where we have invested to be able to supply the market with the freshest, season’s best product. As part of a wider fruit group, PrepWorld have always focused on procurement, in particular the sourcing of higher value, seasonal fruit typically been underserved in the prepared market. This focus has led both to the creation of highly popular seasonal fresh-cut ranges, showcasing fruits as wide-ranging as figs, cherries, pluots, pears, raspberries, apricots and prepared banana. This innovation is underpinned by a focus on technical controls and standards to ensure a safe, high quality, long life product.

PrepWorld was the Gold Winner in the Fruit category at the Grocer Own Label 2015 for its Berry Medley line supplied to Tesco.

Constantly innovating, PrepWorld has established a new venture in Valencia, Spain which provides an excellent geographical location for the supply into the Spanish market and access point for the best of local and international produce.

In order to deliver a truly Spanish offer, Prepworld have established a joint venture with Surexport Compañia Agraria S.L., a major Spanish grower, marketer and exporter of soft fruit. The new venture is based in Valencia, which provides an excellent geographical location for the supply into the Spanish market and access point for the best of local and international produce.

At PrepWorld we are continually innovating as we understand the importance of not standing still. The prepared fruit market is constantly evolving and consumer preferences are always changing. We use new technologies and exciting fruits to provide the very best eating experience within our current range and to create new products that our customers will love.

Products

Our range is constantly evolving and we work closely with our retailers to develop new concepts, such as products based on seasonality and convenience, and to introduce new prepared fruits into the market. As we’ve grown, we have expanded our offerings across several different packaging formats, such as bespoke pots, platters and grab bags.

Our flexibility as a company has allowed PrepWorld to be market leading with seasonal interest, taking advantage of fruits at their peak quality throughout the year, helping to keep our retailers’ ranges fresh and exciting.

New ingredients have always been at the core of our innovation, and here at PrepWorld we like to push the boundaries. We have been first to market with several new fruits such as figs, cherries and bananas.
