About us

Bristol Fruit Sales (Market) Ltd. was established on 1st September 1957, and began as a specialist banana ripener in 1983 located on a site near to the Bristol Wholesale Fruit Centre.

BFS Corporate OfficesIn 1986 we moved to much larger premises before moving again several years later in 1998 to a state of the art, purpose built ripening centre in central Bristol. BFS Bananas Ltd. started trading on 29th November 2006 after being demerged from Bristol Fruit Sales (Market) Ltd and has continued to expand year on year.

So, from humble beginnings over 50 years ago, BFS bananas has grown to become one of the UK’s foremost fruit importers and ripening specialists, supplying some of Europe’s largest retailers. Our management team boast a collective 130 + years of experience in this specialist field and are committed to excellence.

Whilst our business has grown, our passion for delivering unparalleled customer service remains as strong as ever. We combine the use of the most advanced technology available with a lifetime of fruit ripening experience and the very best customer service in the business. This passion for being the best in the business is shared by every single member of our dedicated and hardworking team.
