About Us

Fourayes is the UK’s number one grower and processor of fruit. Located in Kent, the BRC AA rated factory is surrounded by Fourayes’ 100-acre English Bramley apple orchard, which together with all the nearby farms we buy our fruit from, is Red Tractor Farm Assured.

In 2022 Fourayes became part of Puratos, a fellow family-owned business with over 100 years of rich and varied knowledge in bakery, patisserie and chocolate. It was an ideal fit with both being customer-focused, heritage-rich businesses with innovation, people and sustainability at their core. Fourayes is also part of the Puratos local and transparent fruit sourcing programme, aiming to embed sustainability through the entire value chain, from sourcing of raw materials to usage of products by customers and consumers.

Fourayes Heritage

Fourayes Farm was established in 1953 by, the previous Managing Director, Phil Acock’s grandfather. Phil remains in a non-executive role at the company and leaves a legacy of innovation having pioneered industry leading investments including; the natural apple dip that prevents browning without the use of preservatives; a world leading Dynamically Controlled Atmosphere (DCA) storage facility on site; an ESG approach that is evident through the care that goes into preserving the trees and creating a haven for wildlife such as the Fourayes bees.
