Welcome to FGA

FGA is a grower owned business, formed in 2009 by two of Chile’s most respected grower exporters, San Clemente and Gesex. We are proud to serve the leading UK & European retailers through various distribution channels by being the local representatives for our farms in Chile for all direct and in-direct shipments.

Apples, Grapes, Stonefruit and Cherries are the largest volumes from our farms, we are also increasing our production in citrus, pomegranates, kiwi, blueberries and organics.

The open, transparent, direct model, with full crop marketing means that some additional growers also use the FGA service.

Background

In February 2020 FGA Farming purchased the award winning orchards of Norton & Owens Court from FW Mansfield after a few years of working closely with those farms.

Location

Our two farms are located in Kent, "the Garden of England", sitting either side of the town of Faversham.

Production

The finest cherries are produced in these orchards with varieties such as Kordia, Lapin, Penny, Skeena, Regina & Sweetheart. We produce 1,500 tonnes of cherries, that's around 1 in every 4 UK cherries produced in the UK for retail.

Processing

Through shared UK & Chilean knowledge, FGA work exclusively with FW Mansfield packing at a Cherry Centre of Excellence near Canterbury.
