Our Story

40 years ago we worked with just a handful of regions. Now we source from over 40 countries stretching from right here in the UK to as far afield as New Zealand. In today’s market lemons no longer take weeks to deliver, and once-exotic mangoes are a household fruit. As times change so we work hard to stay on top of evolving tastes.

Partnering with the best growers across both hemispheres means that we're able to meet demand for consistent, high quality fruit throughout the year. And we are continually striving to minimise the distance from farm to fruit bowl so that your blueberries, cherries, nectarines, figs or strawberries arrive looking as fresh as when they were picked.

“With a long standing partner such as dps, Stems have managed to distinguish ourselves within the South African industry as one of the Stone Fruit leaders on varietal innovation.
It is a privilege to be associated with such a professional dps team who operate with integrity and take growers interests at heart.
Clear proof of teamwork resulting in an enduring friendship!”
