Karsten UK is The Karsten Group’s dedicated service provider in the United Kingdom. Its main focus is to coordinate a seamless logistical operation to transport the fruit from where it is harvested in South Africa to their customer base throughout the UK. Since February 2015 Karsten UK has also been operating from a second site in the United Kingdom, located at Turners (Soham) near Newmarket, Suffolk.
Karsten UK is located at Bowman’s Chilled Stores, a cold storage facility in Spalding, Lincolnshire, and is responsible for receiving, storing and distributing the product according to marketing requirements. The facilities also offer re-packing services.
Karsten UK undertakes all aspects of product management, including stock control, quality assurance, managing daily orders and the logistics functions required.
