As one of the main users of the service, Dover has proven to be a trusted and flexible partner providing a quality, reliable and strong customer focused service throughout the season. It has ensured that we have strong availability of stock into the UK melon market and a completely fresh product. We look forward to building on the successes of this season and taking our relationship even further in the future.
