Yex has excellent Ready to Eat avocados and mangos. These ready-to-eat fruits are sold by the Discovered brand.
Our products come from specialized and socially certified growers who supply products that are ideally suited for ripening. To name a few, we have mangos coming from Peru, West Africa, Costa Rica, Israel, Brazil and Spain.
The ripening rooms in our warehouse are equipped with state-of-the-art technology. But we won’t make it on technology alone. Ripening mangos and avocados will always be done by manual labor. Yex works with ripening masters who will do everything it takes, including getting out of bed in the middle of the night, to make sure that the avocados and mangos ripen to perfection. Yex has compiled a team full of passion and experience that will ensure that each mango and avocado that leaves the facility, in whatever type of packaging, will be a veritable delight for the consumer.
The avocados, which are available year-round, come from several countries such as Chile, Mexico, Colombia, Kenya, Peru, South Africa, the Dominican Republic, Spain and Israel. A very complete list of countries that are absolutely indispensable if we want to import high-quality products all year round. Yex has a strong relationship with its fruit growers, which is why we handle them with care. The avocados are specially selected by the growers for the right characteristics, such as the correct dry matter content, which ensures that the avocado ripens well and has a delicious flavour.
The mangos are not harvested until the moment that they’ve achieved the right stage of maturity. This means that the fruit ripens perfectly here in the Netherlands, ensuring that the final product is full of flavour. In addition, only the loveliest, most vibrantly coloured fruits are selected for the Discovered “Ready to Eat” brand.
Our avocado and mango 2-pack packaging has been given a sustainable jacket. Sustainability is number 1 with this packaging. It is made from 100% paper, with most components from FSC certified paper. This means that it can be thrown away by the consumer in one go. There are also recycle icons on the packaging so the consumer knows how to throw it away. The disadvantage of paper is often that the packaging weight becomes heavier, but that is not the case with this packaging. It’s even lighter than the old flowpack!
In addition to sustainability, we also find ease of use and consumer information very important. That is why we have kept the visibility of the products as high as possible by making the band as thin as possible. The band is also handy to use as a handle when picking up the packaging. Finally, there is always a QR code on the packaging that refers to our website full of information and inspiration for the consumer.
