11 million boxes of citrus fruit, sounds a lot doesn't it? It equates to roughly 140 million individual bags. That's certainly enough to make your eyes water! That is the amount that my client provides a leading supermarket with, EACH YEAR!
As you can imagine, it's no small operation. It requires a huge amount of talented, hard-working members of staff all across the globe. From growers in Spain, Peru & South Africa all the way to their processing staff in the UK, every one pulls together to make sure the operation runs smoothly.
