Jaguar, the fresh company receives first Royal Gala
First apples from Uruguay arrived in Europe

The import season for top fruit from South America has started in Europe. Today the first Royal Gala apples from Uruguay arrived at Jaguar, the fresh company. "We have large import programs with top fruit and citrus from South Africa," says Eddy Jager, who is responsible for the import from South America at Jaguar, the fresh company.

Eddy Jager says the quality of the first apples is very well. "The quality and the size of the apples is better than last year. Last year, the apples were relatively small, but this year the size, the quality and the colour are good," says Eddy Jager.

Jaguar, the fresh company will import the varieties Royal Gala, Fuji, Granny Smith and Crisp Pink from Uruguay. The apples from Uruguay are packed under the labels Migranja and Urodor. Later on, the apples will also be available under Jaguar's own label.

The first Williams pears from Argentina also arrived at Jaguar, the fresh company. Jaguar will also import the apple varieties Granny Smith and Red Delicious from Argentina. Within two weeks, the import of apples from Brazil will also start. "We expect large volumes from Brazil," says Eddy Jager.
