French tropical fruit importer Compagnie Fruitière has opened a new Hungarian subsidiary to expand its presence in Central and Eastern Europe.
Compagnie Fruitière Hungary will now market all products in the region, previously distributed through local partners.
The company will now use its own ripening facility to develop its distribution network, located on near major roads and on an industrial estate close to Budapest.
It is equipped with the latest ripening technology, with 12 two-tier ripening rooms, each holding 24 pallets and with a ripening capacity of 20,000 boxes a week. The facility is IFS-certified (International Food Standard).
