Have you ever thought about how your bananas get to your fruit bowl?

The miles and processes our food undertakes to get from producer to plate are things we take for granted. Luckily, we don’t have to think about it. We can leave that up to the expert importers and the well-oiled machine they’ve perfected over years of experience.

That’s exactly what SH Pratts is.


Starting out in 1947, grown from a love of bananas, our founder, Bob Wells began supplying a small green grocer with fresh produce as a fruit and vegetable wholesaler.

Fast forward 71 years and Bob’s humble beginnings in a small village in Buckinghamshire seem almost unimaginable now.

With 7 decades of know how under our belt, Bob’s passion for bananas helped Pratts to conquer the fruit industry. Under today’s ownership by Robert Wells, SH Pratts is now one of the biggest import, ripening and fruit distributeurs of bananas in the UK.

So we are thrilled to announce that we’ve been nominated for a tremendous four FPC Fresh Awards!

FPC Fresh Awards

The Fresh Produce Consortium selects and awards these accolades in five categories to celebrate excellence across the fresh food industry.

From the supply chain, to retail and marketing functions, and individual performance, there are 17 awards up for grabs on the night.

We are really pleased that Robert’s passion for wagons and modern technology, combined with our hard-earned expertise has been recognized with our nomination for some of the awards.

Wish us luck on the night!
