Exporting garlic to the Caribbean

By | Corporate, Customers | No Comments

With garlic being one of the three most popular fresh produce items that the Caribbean imports, it made sense for Rush Group to refocus their efforts, by way of this pungent bulb, on their existing and new Caribbean clients.

The Group can export Chinese white garlic, mainly from China and Spain, due to the quantity this country produces, Argentina, known for its stronger and richer taste, and Egypt, probably Rush’s main supplier.

Rush exports garlic mainly to Trinidad, Tobago, Puerto Rico and Barbados, as it is these countries that order enough, enabling Rush to offer their clients in these specific islands, the most competitive prices. Exporting garlic to the Caribbean requires in depth technical skill, such as storing the garlic at the correct ambient temperature and understanding the different specifications that this diverse product has to offer. Rush’s skill ensures that any garlic that is exported, always reaches its final destination in the best possible condition.

The Group is able to supply its Caribbean clients with garlic, 52 weeks a year, but it is not just this constant supply that makes them attractive to its Caribbean customers, according to Tom Ebdon, who deals with this region, it is because his clients want a variety of suppliers rather than relying on one. Also it goes without saying that price is also high on the list of priorities.

If you are in the Caribbean, and looking for a reliable, competitive supply of garlic, 365 days a year, please contact Tom Ebdon today.

Rush Group sponsor football’s newest star players

Football team

Rush Group is proud to sponsor Ivybridge Town Arrows football team, part of the Ivybridge Town Football Club.

The team, who have just joined the Pioneer League, which starts at the end of this August, have been playing friendly matches all over Devon, to get them ready for the competitive matches ahead of them.

Rush Group chose to sponsor Ivybridge Town Arrows, due to the company’s roots in the local area, and also because it believes in giving something back. This corporate social responsibility is evident not just in this case, but also the Group’s involvement with The Upper Room. Rush donates potatoes to this London charity for the homeless on a regular basis, who in turn use the potatoes as part of the meals they distribute to those in need.

The Group has provided Ivybridge Town Arrows with football shirts, shorts and socks as well as complete goalkeeper’s kit.

Rush wish the team all the luck for the end of August, and who knows the next Beckham, Gerrard or Lampard could just come from Ivybridge Town Arrows.
