It was fascinating to visit Gomez's facility just off the A2. With the highest technology, they store, naturally ripen, pack, process and distribute an impressive range of fruit and vegetables, ready for sale across the country.
Operating since 1955, Gomez is independently owned, 86% by its fruit and vegetable growers in Southern Spain. Gomez currently employs over 500 permanent staff, and has plans to expand operations onto additional land it has recently purchased for development.
I was impressed to hear how the business has steadily been growing year on year, and I look forward to visiting again soon to hear more about their expansion plans.
Gomez do so much to support the local community, from sponsoring Dover Athletic FC to visiting local schools to talk to the children about field to fork food production and to help promote a healthy diet of fruit and vegetables.
