With 350 million turnover and 160 employees, the Poupart group is one of the UK’s top 5 distributors. It is also one of the oldest produce companies in the UK, having been incorporated in 1895 but operating since the 1850s. “The turnover of the Poupart Imports division dedicated to the non-supermarket sectors has been growing at 8-10% a year,” said Jonathan Olins. Within this very competitive but still growing market, these positive figures prove that Poupart is consolidating itself in the wholesale and foodservice sectors. The import activity of the group is shared between 5 dedicated produce divisions: BerryWorld (with Vital Berry on the continent), Poupart Citrus, Orchard World (top fruit) and Norton Folgate (stone fruit). As one of its new growth strategies, the Poupart group is now moving into the European retail sector as well. It is also increasing its direct sourcing, with the Citrus First division established in Spain in 2012 and the Fruto Del Campo division created in 2012 in Holland to market stone fruit, while Poupart Figueres has been dedicated to sourcing and sales over a longer period.
