Since Favco’s inception in 1999, the vision has always been to expand the Favco business beyond the realm of traditional market wholesaler. In order to achieve this, Favco has placed considerable emphasis on building a team of individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds within the fruit and vegetable industry.
The Favco Sales Team represents some of the most experienced fruit and vegetable personnel in the industry, and are leaders in their given product areas. Providing the Management and Sales Team with expert support is the Favco Logistics, Quality Control and Administrative Teams. Together, we ensure that Favco’s service delivery is of the highest standard, increasing our value as a business partner to our suppliers and customers.
It’s another way that Favco is able to deliver on its goal – mutual success!
