History and activity of the company

Commercial Fruits S.A. was founded in 1993 by its president Gabriel Burunat, and is dedicated to the import of overseas off-seasonal fruits and vegetables from diverse and faraway origins from around the word.

Commercial Fruits S.A. was a pioneer in importing avocadoes from Peru since the early 2000’s.
This fruit has become the flagship of the company and is imported year round. The most popular variety imported is Hass.

At the same time Commercial Fruits has developed other specialties such as mangoes, pomegranates, fresh figs and asparagus.
The company’s strategy is to select and to provide in partnership with its suppliers the best available products, origins, varieties and quality brands on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
We source our products from different origins in order to fulfill year round supply.

In 2010, Commercial Fruits entered a new phase in its development by acquiring in the MIN of Rungis a new state of the art warehouse of 2 250 m2, which enables us to respond even more efficiently to the needs of customers and suppliers in terms of storage, ripening and logistics.

Our clientele includes major French supermarket chain stores, wholesalers based in the national produce markets across France and also customers within European union such as: The Netherlands, Scandinavia, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the UK.
