As well as farming at home in the UK, we’re actively involved in growing exotic fruit and premium vegetables from Peru, Kenya, The Gambia, Spain, Brazil, Senegal and many other countries around the world.
With long established relationships, we’re good at what we do, and continually get better by investing in our production technologies, our supply chain, our people and our communities. All of this allows us to ensure our customers receive the very best in sustainable, fresh, high quality produce that’s delivered on time, every time. Having an impressive history in commercialising export horticulture in many developing countries, we stand today as an acknowledged expert and category leader.
Corporate social responsibility
At Wealmoor, CSR lies at the heart of everything we do. We care about all of our farming communities and use our knowledge and expertise to help form collaborative and rewarding relationships. In fact, we have always recognised the vital role agriculture can play as a catalyst for change in rural areas.
This is most ably demonstrated, but not limited to, countries such as Peru, Brazil, The Gambia and Kenya where our farming activities form such an integral part of the fabric of local communities. The projects are often extensive. We’ve supported the funding and building of maternity clinics in rural areas, the investment, construction, resourcing of nursery, primary and secondary schools, the sustainable development and empowerment of women’s grower groups, the provision of staple food stuffs during key religious festivals, continuous free supply of second hand and new clothing, shoes and toys as well as providing relief support to natural disaster areas and victims. Our growers and partnerships are carefully selected to ensure we work closely with and contribute to the communities which we are all involved in. Similarly, our contribution to the development of small grower communities worldwide is something we are immensely proud of and has allowed us to mobilise large swathes of rural communities in the developing world.
What all CSR activities have in common is that like the proverbial “good neighbour” we are able to work hand in hand with communities to identify not just what financial support may be required but also the operational and administrative needs that underpin the sustainability and success of many projects over the longer term.
Our CSR activities are something we are genuinely committed to and extremely proud of. It is an area where we enjoy a long term aspiration to be truly the best in class.
