This summer we will continue to work on renewing, expanding and perfecting our range at FMI.
Closing the restaurants was a dramatic hit for the limes market. There was too much supply and the supermarkets emphasised the basic items. “After a considerable period of extremely low prices, the situation for limes has now improved,” says René Bouman of Fruit Market International.

As researchers try to find an antidote for the coronavirus, here are some foods that can boost your immunity and help you fight infections.
Our colleagues have not been sitting around doing nothing since the FMI office opened in Spain. José Espinoza in particular went out every day to visit Spanish suppliers, exchange knowledge and scout opportunities. We are therefore incredibly proud that his work has yielded fruit so soon: The first pallets of beautiful Primofiori Premium Quality Lemons in gleaming Royal Fresh boxes!
In the last months the FMI team has welcomed two new colleagues; Jose Espinoza and Bert van Gelder. Jose is working at our new office in Alicante. His focus will be on exporting Spanish product to our European client network. Bert van Gelder started as a senior buyer-trader in our office in Barendrecht. He has many years of experience in the fruit industry and he is objective will be to expand the product portfolio within the team.
After a challenging season with a high supply and often low prices, the limes market in Europe has recovered in recent weeks. Due to the drought in Mexico, there were almost no Mexican limes available and Brazil, partly due to good domestic demand, exported significantly less volumes to Europe. This resulted in high prices, mainly on the spot market.
Fruit Attraction 2019 was a big success!
From 22nd to 24th of October the FMI team was present with a stand at the Fruit Attraction in Madrid. We had a great time meeting a lot of people, we had interesting conversations, good deals and just a lot of fun!
With many years of experience in trading, the Fruit Market International team is the leading expert in the field of Limes, Lemons and Papayas! We very consciously decided to mostly do what we are good at. How? Our key words are strong brands and short lines of communication with our customers and growers.
